ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- The St. Louis Cardinals on Friday announced the signing of Dexter Fowler, the former Cubs center fielder.
The official announcement came in a news conference Friday at Busch Stadium.
Fowler, 30, hit .276, 13 home runs and drove in 48 runs in 2016 with world champion Chicago Cubs.

Fowler fills a big need for the Cardinals, who were looking for an outfielder and someone who could hit leadoff.

The move may mean Randal Grichuk will move to left field, while Fowler patrols center.
