Dexter Fowler open to returning to Cubs


by - Senior Editor -

Former Chicago Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler is currently at David Ortiz's charity event in Punta Cana.

He said that he is open to returning to the World Series champions and his top choice is "whoever wants to give me a job," Fowler said according to MLB insider Ian Browne.

Fowler turned down the Cubs 17.2 million qualifying offer as he is looking for a long-term contract in free agency. The people in Fowler's camp want a reported long-term deal that averages around $18 million per year.

He batted .276 with 13 homers, 48 RBIs, and 13 steals this season and was named to his first National League All-Star team this past season. For his career, he batted .268 with 78 homers and 339 RBIs.
