Powell was called up by the A's on Friday.

Powell will join the big-league club just days after coming over from Seattle in the Yonder Alonso trade. During 23 games with the Mariners this season, Powell hit .194/.310/.194 with two RBI and six runs in his first taste of the majors. He's played well at the Triple-A level this season, and figures to provide depth for Oakland moving forward while earning the occasional start in the outfield, most likely in center against right-handed pitching.
