Rays signed OF Jake Smolinski to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Smolinski missed a large portion of the 2018 season with a blood clot in his left leg and was outrighted off the Athletics' 40-man roster in October. The 29-year-old outfielder is a .235/.299/.363 career hitter in the major leagues. Wed, Nov 7, 2018 08:40:00 PM

Boog Powell (knee) is expected to miss several weeks.

Powell was placed on the disabled list over the weekend with a ligament sprain in his knee. Jake Smolinski and Trayce Thompson should see time in center field for now, but it's probably just a matter of time before Dustin Fowler gets a shot.

MLB.com's Jane Lee writes that Dustin Fowler (knee) "is the favorite to land the center field job" for the Athletics.

Fowler suffered a gruesome right patella tendon rupture in his major league debut last June when he was with the Yankees, but he's right on schedule with his recovery. The A's plan to ease him into things at the beginning of spring training, but all signs point to him being ready to roll come Opening Day. It's good to hear, but Oakland could ultimately decide to get by with Boog Powell and/or Jake Smolinski in center field for a while and let Fowler knock some rust off in the minors. The situation is worth watching closely in spring training, as Fowler is an interesting power/speed guy who hit .293/.329/.542 with 13 homers and 13 steals in 70 Triple-A games before being called up last season.
