The Cardinals are considered the frontrunner to sign Dexter Fowler to a multi-year contract. According to Ken Rosenthal, the Cardinals met with Fowler’s agents Monday and made him “an initial offer.”
Jon Heyman reported Monday that the Blue Jays offered Fowler a four-year contract in the $60 million range.
According to Heyman, Fowler is looking for $18 million per year on a multi-year deal.
The Cardinals and Blue Jays are at the top of a list of teams that are interested in signing Dexter Fowler this off-season. The Nationals, Rangers and Giants have also been linked to Fowler. Reports have suggested in recent days the Rangers and Giants are no longer in on Fowler.
