Boog Powell (knee) has been shut down for the year.
Powell suffered a bruised left kneecap last week. An MRI showed no structural damage, but the A's aren't going to push him with only six games remaining on their schedule. The 24-year-old outfielder posted a promising .321/.380/.494 batting line in 92 plate appearances with Oakland after being acquired from Seattle in early August for Yonder Alonso.

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.

Nelson Cruz left Thursday's game against the Rockies with a left hand injury.

Kyle Freeland plunked him with an 89 mph cutter in the third inning. Cruz stayed in to run the bases but Boog Powell took his next at-bat for him. The Mariners have had a nightmare afternoon, losing Jean Segura (ankle) and now Cruz to injury. We'll update Cruz's status as soon as we know more.
