ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have signed free agent center fielder Dexter Fowler to a five-year deal.

The switch-hitting Fowler helped the Chicago Cubs win their first World Series since 1908 last year by batting .276 with a .393 on-base percentage.
Signing Fowler will cost the Cardinals their first-round pick (19th overall) in the 2017 draft, since the Cubs made him a qualifying offer.

Fowler will wear No. 25 in honor of Barry Bonds.
