CF - FA
Boog Powell is expected to be placed on the disabled list Sunday, Julian McWilliams of The Athletic Bay Area reports. It was revealed that a sprained right knee was bothering the second-year outfielder earlier Saturday, and it seems that the team wants to take it slow with his recovery.
Powell will undergo an MRI on Monday, which should clarify the severity of the injury. With Powell out, look for Trayce Thompson to see the bulk of playing time for the Athletics.
Boog Powell will be the A's primary center fielder to open the 2018 season.
Powell won the job with a strong spring. Still, he has limited fantasy value and will have top prospect, Dustin Fowler, breathing down his neck from Triple-A.
In a 3-2 win over Houston, Boog Powell went 3-for-4 with one run scored, one walk and stuck out once.
Powell has done a solid job at the plate since mid-August, but he's only someone to consider using in deep fantasy leagues right now. He's worth keeping an eye on, though, for standard leagues.
