Nearly a year after suffering a gruesome injury, A's center fielder Dustin Fowler has gotten his first major league hit. Last June in Chicago, Fowler made his MLB debut — for the Yankees — but never got a chance to bat after crashing into the right-field wall chasing a fly ball, rupturing the patella tendon in his right knee. He missed the remainder of the season, and was ultimately involved in the deal that brought the man he just got his first hit off of, Sonny Gray, to the Bronx. Fowler was called up this week by Oakland and popped out in his first big-league at-bat on Wednesday.
