Fowler is coming off a strong season on the North Side, in which he appeared in 156 games for the Cubs during their 97-win regular season. Fowler posted a .250/.346/.411 slash line with a career-high 17 home runs and 46 RBIs, also swiping 20 bases and drawing a career-high 84 walks.
Fowler played in all nine postseason games for the Cubs, collecting 10 hits — including a pair of home runs and a pair of doubles — and walking twice in 39 plate appearances.
Fowler was one of the bigger-name free agents remaining on the market, teams perhaps wary due to the cost of a draft pick for signing the 29-year-old outfielder.
