Sounds like the Orioles may get a steal on Fowler. And the Cubs may finally get a draft pick
Gallardo gets three years and $35 million. Will the Orioles now do the second thing we’ve been expecting? Implications for the Cubs there.
The high end of that range wouldn’t be a terrible deal for Fowler. Hopefully it gets done soon.
Spring Training is basically here, and Fowler is still unsigned. That may not be the case for much longer.
Lazarito could be waiting, Shohei Ohtani is in Arizona, the Gurriel Brothers are somewhere secret, and much more.

Dexter Fowler holding things up, $500 million for Bryce Harper, a trade for Mike Trout and much more.
The price tag could simply grow too large on Lazarito. But there are other options out there.
Gallardo’s price tag could be quite large, and Fowler might be the next to drop thereafter.
It sounds like teams are still waiting on a decision. It’s a big one, so the young man can take his time a bit.
The timeline for the brothers’ arrival could be complicated. But their impact could be significant.
