Do Royals have interest in Fowler?
Could the Royals really be interested in Rockies center fielder Dexter Fowler as the Denver Post suggests?
Well, the Royals are looking for an impact bat but that didn’t seem to be Fowler’s profile this year when he hit .263 and had 12 homers but none after July 28. Of course, he was limited to 119 games by hand and knee injuries. His 2012 figures were much more promising: .300 with 13 homers and 53 RBIs.
Fowler has speed, defense and power potential going for him but not consistency and he wouldn’t come cheap. He’s signed for $7.35 million in 2014. Besides, the Royals seem happy with center fielder Lorenzo Cain and backup Jarrod Dyson.
The Rockies want pitching and the Royals are flush with bullpen talent so that could be a bargaining chip with almost any club.
