With Opening Day's arrival, let's look at 10 interesting, and sometimes surprising, moves that broke this week and what the related fantasy impact could be.
Dustin Fowler to Triple-A, Boog Powell starting in center
It's still weird to me that Boog Powell isn't related to Boog Powell, the Orioles legend turned BBQ entrepreneur. Anyway, after hitting .222/.308/.289 this spring, Powell won the job over Fowler, who was even worse at .222/.245/.267. Powell got some points for hitting .282/.358/.402 in 135 big-league plate appearances last year, and he did hit .340/.416/.490 in Triple-A, so the A's obviously hope for a bit more than he's showed this spring. Fowler is the clear CF of the future, but after missing half of last year with a horrific knee injury, he's probably still getting his game back. I can easily see Fowler spending a month in Triple-A to get things right and then supplanting Powell in center field. Powell offers nothing in terms of power potential, and maybe in a full season he steals a dozen bases, so limit rostering him to AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.
Amir Garrett benefits from bad weather
The postponement of the Reds' opener in Washington eliminates an off day and opens a start for Garrett. A former top prospect, Garrett had an excellent spring, posting a 3.18 ERA and excellent 21:4 K:BB in 17 innings. Garrett was, well, awful last year. In 70.2 big league innings, he somehow allowed 23 home runs with a 5.1 BB/9. The result
