And when I say back, I mean he's back playing baseball after that gruesome injury last year. If you don't remember... Dustin Fowler was making his Yankee debut, pretty much ran full speed, crashed into the short fence and was carried off the field at that point.

The reason? An open rupture of his right patellar tendon. In other words, it was nasty.

That was the end of that.  He was soon shipped off to the Oakland A's. We got Sonny Gray.  But now, Fowler is back and playing in Oakland.  You know me... I like to follow up on former Yankee players. writes:

"Back playing this season, Fowler was called up by the Athletics from Triple-A on Wednesday, he got his first big-league at-bat that day, and on Friday night he’ll be in Oakland’s lineup for its series opener against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. And who will be pitching for the Yankees? Gray, of course.

'It's just the perfect story ... the guy I got traded for, getting to face him,' Fowler said Thursday in his post-game interview. 'It'll be nice to be in New York and play in front of that crowd. It'll be exciting. I'm ready to get there.'"

It will be fun to see Fowler again and no doubt he's out to prove something to the Yankees.  But whatever the case, it's just good that he's healthy... finally.

Welcome back Fowler.
