As they were ironing out the details of a contract with starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo, the Orioles reportedly added the cherry on top of their big-spending offseason, agreeing to terms with outfielder Dexter Fowler to play right field and bat lead-off. Center fielder Adam Jones told The Sun he spoke with Fowler. "He's excited," he said. "He should be on his way now." Not so fast. In a surprise move, Fowler returned to this old team, the Chicago Cubs, on Thursday and announced he'd signed a one-year deal with an option. Oddly, he apparently turned down more money from the Orioles to stay put. The Fowler switcheroo was a bit of a gut punch, leaving the team searching for a hitter to get on base at the top of the lineup, but hey, at least the Gallardo deal worked out.
