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.

Boog Powell is not in the Athletics' lineup on Friday due to a bruised left kneecap.

Powell underwent an MRI which revealed no structural damage. He was able to hit in the cages prior to Friday's game and will test out his knee by running on the field in an effort to determine when he's able to return.

Boog Powell went 2-for-4 with a double as the Athletics topped the Phillies on Friday night in Oakland.

The 24-year-old rookie outfielder has done a nice job so far, slashing .284/.364/.405 with three homers and 11 RBI in 133. With a strong finish to the season, he could put himself in a position to earn a starting job heading into 2018.

Boog Powell went 2-for-4 with a run scored and three RBI in Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday against the Astros.

Powell was 4-for-8 with four runs scored, a double, a walk and four RBI in the twin bill. Not bad. He has raised his average from .247 to .283 just since Sept. 5, and he has now rolled up six RBI over his past three outings.

Boog Powell finished 2-for-4 with a double, three runs scored, a walk and a pair of RBI in Game 1 of a doubleheader on Saturday against the Astros.

Powell is starting to heat up with three multi-hit games over his past four outings, raising his average from .247 to .275 just since Sept. 5. It's baby steps, but he has three RBI over his past two outings to mark the first time he has driven in a run in consecutive games this season.

Boog Powell hit his first major league homer in the A's loss to the Orioles on Monday.

It was a solo shot in the top of the eighth inning against O's reliever Brad Brach. Powell also drew two walks in the game and has now reached base in 12 of his 23 trips to the plate since joining the Athletics in the Yonder Alonso trade. The 24-year-old outfielder should see regular playing time down the stretch in Oakland and holds some appeal in AL-only fantasy leagues.

Boog Powell (illness) is back in the Athletics' lineup Saturday against the Orioles.

Powell suffered an asthma attack on Friday but made a quick recovery and will make his Athletics' debut in center field Saturday against the O's. He'll hit leadoff against Baltimore right-hander Dylan Bundy.

Athletics recalled outfielder Boog Powell from Triple-A Nashville.

Powell, acquired from the Mariners for Yonder Alonso five days ago, will take over as Oakland's center fielder against right-handers, replacing Jaycob Brugman. He played in just three games for Nashiville, going 4-for-16. He's always displayed nice on-base skills, but his power is limited and he's only a decent basestealer. He's strictly an AL-only guy for fantasy purposes.

Athletics acquired OF Boog Powell from the Mariners in exchange for 1B Yonder Alonso.

Powell, 24, has hit just .194/.310/.194 during his brief chances in the majors this season, but he sports a robust .340/.416/.490 line at Triple-A. He can play all three outfield positions and profiles as a fourth outfielder over the long run.

Mariners optioned OF Boog Powell to Triple-A Tacoma.

Powell has hit just .179/.324/.179 in 20 games this season and hasn't been playing much. He's making room for Mitch Haniger's (oblique) return.
