Blue Jays Sign Veteran Outfielder

The Toronto Blue Jays have signed Dexter Fowler to a minor league contract. He also has been invited to attend Spring Training with the major league squad. 

Fowler appeared in just seven major league games last season with the Los Angeles Angels, as he tore his ACL last April. In them, he sported a .250 batting average and had one RBI. Now that he is healthy, he will be aiming to make Toronto's roster and get into far more action this campaign. 

Fowler comes with an immense amount of major league experience, so that certainly could help his chances of making the Blue Jays' major league roster. In 1,460 career games between the Colorado Rockies, Houston Astros, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals, and Angels, he has 127 home runs, 517 RBIs, and a .259 batting average. With that, he also was an All-Star and won the World Series in 2016. 

Overall, there's certainly nothing wrong with the Blue Jays giving Fowler a look. If he performs well at Spring Training, he could be a solid addition to their outfield depth.
