2018 Fantasy Outlook
Powell has had nearly 800 plate appearances in Triple-A over the past three seasons and fewer than 150 at the major-league level in that same time. Throughout his time in the minors, he has shown the ability to utilize his speed to slap at the ball and get on base even if he does not attempt as many steals as people would like. Then again, he has a poor 61 percent success rate stealing bases in the minors and a 62 percent rate in Triple-A. He is now in his second stint with Oakland after spending time with Kansas City, Seattle and Tampa Bay in recent years around a PED suspension in 2016. Powell has an option remaining, so president of baseball operations Billy Beane can send him back and forth this year as roster situations dictate the need. He may enter camp as the favorite to be the Opening Day starter in center field, but if he does not get better at stealing bases, it will not matter since he offers little else fantasy-wise.

Outrighted to Triple-A
OFOakland Athletics  AAA
September 1, 2018
Powell was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
Powell was removed from the 40-man roster as the Athletics made a slew of additions for September's expanded roster. The 25-year-old seemed a likely candidate to return to Oakland once rosters expanded, but he'll instead remain with the Sounds.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Mariners acquired Powell from the Rays in late 2015. He was struggling with Triple-A Tacoma (84 wRC+) before his season ended with an 80-game suspension for violating the minor league performance-enhancing-drug policy. He played in the Dominican winter league in an effort to make up for lost game action, but his suspension won't be fully served until mid-April. His power potential remains sketchy, but he could steal 20 bases and hit for a respectable batting average with proper development. His 1,552 plate appearances in the minors show a good chunk of seasoning for a player his age, and his lefty bat would give him a handy platoon advantage. However, his most likely MLB role is as a bench bat or utility player, and he lacks the tools and pedigree to warrant ownership in most dynasty leagues.
