Dexter Fowler got traded to the team, the Los Angeles Angels, by the St. Louis Cardinals. This incident took place this Thursday. The player who will be returning to the Cardinals has not been named until now. And nothing has been said about any sort of cash considerations as well.

As per the observations of the surface level, Dexter Fowler will be reunited with the current manager of the Angels, Joe Maddon.

The season 2016 was the best year in the career of Dexter Fowler.

According to sources, a contract of a total of 82.5 million USD for five years was with the St. Louis Cardinals by the player. This was done after the offseason. The amount that is left of the deal is 16.5 million USD. And the time duration of the same is a year. The total amount that is being received by the Angels is 12.77 million USD. This is in order to cover the salary of Dexter Fowler for the year 2021.

The 34-year-old player made a total run of 14 plus 15RBI in the last season. The number of games played in the season was just 31. The move provides alleviation to the outfielders of the Cardinals team who are of clogged-up nature.
