The Toronto Blue Jays are granting outfielder Dexter Fowler’s request to be released, Sportsnet reported Tuesday.

The Blue Jays signed the 36-year-old veteran to a minor league deal on March 31 and he appeared in three games at Triple-A Buffalo, batting .417 (5 for 12) with three RBIs.

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.
