Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler has been cited as a main target of the Toronto Blue Jays according to MLB Network's Jon Morosi.

The Blue Jays are looking for a left-handed lead-off hitter and Fowler would fit the bill for them. Other teams that are interested in Fowler include the Cardinals, Giants, Dodgers, Phillies, Mariners, Rangers and Athletics.

Fowler 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.

He turned down the Cubs 17.2 million qualifying offer as he is looking for a long-term contract in free agency.
