Fowler (knee) is expected to be at full strength for the start of spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Furthermore, Oakland is planning on the Fowler being a part of the major-league roster next season, as he'll receive an opportunity to compete for the starting center field job in the spring. The 22-year-old still has a long way to go in his recovery from a ruptured patella tendon he sustained in late June, but the A's seem confident the newly acquired prospect will be able to make a splash in 2018.
