Athletics activated Boog Powell from the 60-day disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Nashville.
Powell has been on the 60-day disabled list since April 8 with a knee injury. He's been rehabbing since June 10, and hit .211/.412/.237 over 12 games. He'll likely head back to Oakland when rosters expand, assuming there isn't an injury in the Oakland outfield. Aug 1 - 7:25 PM

Athletics optioned OF Dustin Fowler to Triple-A Nashville.

So it'll be Boog Powell in center field for the A's. Fowler had a good shot at winning the job, but he batted just .222/.245/.267 over 50 plate appearances in the Cactus League. The 23-year-old top prospect should force his way back up at some point.

Dustin Fowler went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Friday’s victory over the Angels.

The A’s starting center field battle is going down to the wire between Fowler and Boog Powell. Coming off a brutal knee injury, Fowler is hitting just .195 (8-for-41) with 12 strikeouts and two walks over 16 games. Meanwhile, Powell is batting .256/.348/.333 over 17 games. It might not be the worst thing for Fowler to get some more seasoning in the minors.

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.
