Pat started off talking about the kind of person the Orioles are getting in outfielder Dexter Fowler saying “he is a great guy, his teammates will love him…he is a good lead-off hitter and he’s got some power, and he’s a clutch ball player.” As for what the signing means for certain guys in the line-up of the Orioles Pat said “he probably will allow Manny Machado to move down to 3 or 4 in the line-up.”

Pat talked about what kind of player Fowler is defensively saying “he is a good defensive player, I don’t know how he’ll make the transition to right field I only saw him play center field.” When the subject of Fowler’s increased number of strikeouts came up and whether it was because it was a contract year and he was swinging for the fences Pat said “I’d say it is certainly a possibility, you’d have to ask him but it certainly is not uncommon…he was a good force for the Cubs, he started a lot of rallies when the Cubs were playing their best ball of the year.”
