2018 Fantasy Outlook
No hitter had a worse big-league debut than Fowler last year. He crashed into the outfield wall and ruptured his kneecap in late June before ever making a plate appearance for the Yankees. This cost him the rest of the season, and helped make him expendable when he was sent to Oakland in the deadline deal for Sonny Gray. The injury was a significant developmental setback, but the trade actually works in Fowler's favor. He went from an organization with extreme outfield depth to one where he will compete for the starting center field job in spring training. He has typically excelled at making contact, but posted a career-high 20.1 percent strikeout rate at Triple-A last year. Prior to that change in approach, he was seen as a classic plus hit tool/plus speed center fielder, but he is starting to tap into intriguing pop -- his .249 ISO at Triple-A was easily a career best. Now he looks like a five-category threat who could soon hit near the top of the lineup and offer 20-20 potential. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
As expected, Fowler is back with the A's after spending a little less than a month in the minors following an underwhelming 59-game stint with the big club earlier in the year (.231/260/.328, though he did have six homers and six steals). The 23-year-old should get an opportunity to prove himself down the stretch, though with the A's in a playoff race, he may be utilized primarily as a pinch runner or defensive replacement if he struggles at the plate.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Fowler was extremely productive in 2016, hitting over .280 for the second-consecutive year. He swiped 25 bags for the second straight season, but also saw an uptick in power, giving him that power/speed combination that makes fantasy owners salivate. Fowler hit 30 doubles, 15 triples and 12 home runs en route to a .770 OPS for Double-A Trenton. The 21-year-old lefty has stellar speed, more pop than expected, and the ability to hit for average. His only issue may be the suddenly crowded outfield with Aaron Judge, Tyler Austin, Jacoby Ellsbury, Brett Gardner and Clint Frazier all technically ahead of him on the organizational depth chart. As a result, Fowler should start the 2017 campaign in Triple-A with an eye towards making his big-league debut sometime during the season.
