The Yankees have interest in Dexter Fowler

by - Senior Editor -

Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler has been cited as a target of the New York Yankees according to MLB Insider Jon Heyman.

"The Yankees have called upon several more top free-agent hitters, including Dexter Fowler, Matt Holliday, Mike Napoli and Brandon Moss, and are believed to have checked in with the better-starting pitchers on the market, including Rich Hill and Jason Hammel," Heyman said.

Other teams that are interested in Fowler include the Blue Jays, 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.
