A’s Dustin Fowler not in lineup after frustrating time in Houston

HOUSTON - Dustin Fowler’s series against the Astros wasn’t much fun, and Thursday, manager Bob Melvin gave the rookie the start off. “Especially for a younger guy - it seems like every game adds to his frustration, so we’ll give him a little bit of a break,” Melvin said. “It’s been a pretty frustrating series for him, for obvious reasons.” Fowler was 1-for-16 in the first three games at Minute Maid Park, striking out seven times, including five times Monday, when he did not get much benefit of the doubt on strike calls.

CLEVELAND - Homers kept coming for the A’s away from home. Sharp work in other areas was in shorter supply against the Indians on Friday.

A’s Dustin Fowler: trip back to Chicago ‘nerve-racking,’ site of his serious knee injury

SAN DIEGO - A’s outfielder Dustin Fowler will be back on the south side of Chicago on Thursday for the first time since seriously injuring his right knee in his major-league debut. “It’s going to be weird, for sure,” Fowler said Wednesday. “It’s a series I don’t know if I was dreading or looking forward to the most. It’s pretty nerve-racking, but I’m ready to get there and get it out of the way.” Debuting as a Yankee, Fowler ran full speed for a fly ball by the White Sox’s Jose Abreu and slammed into an unpadded electrical box in foul...
