The Toronto Blue Jays signed veteran outfielder Dexter Fowler to a minor-league deal on Thursday and invited him to spring training.

Fowler, 36, played in just seven games last season with the Los Angeles Angels before tearing the ACL in his left knee in early April.

In 14 MLB seasons, Fowler has appeared in 1,460 games, collecting 1,306 hits — 127 of them homers — and 517 RBIs. A lifetime .259 hitter, he was an All-Star with the Cubs in 2016, winning the World Series in the second of his two seasons in Chicago.

Fowler also has played for the Colorado Rockies (2008-13), Houston Astros (2014), St. Louis Cardinals (2017-20) and Angels.
