Dustin Fowler Suffers Season-Ending Knee Injury In MLB Debut

New York Yankees’ Dustin Fowler sits on the field after suffering an injury during the first inning of the team’s baseball game against the Chicago White Sox on Thursday

Fowler, who was called up earlier from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and was making his major-league debut, was scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday night at a local hospital.

Fowler was on a full run and wasn't able to catch up with the ball, which bounced in foul territory.

Fowler didn't even get the chance to complete his first big league at-bat, as he was stranded in the on-deck circle after the Yankees batted in the top of the first inning.

Starting in right field after a two hour, 50-minute rain delay, Fowler's knee slammed into the metal box in failed pursuit of a foul ball hit by Jose Abreu.

Girardi felt the injury was tragic and preventable as Fowler's knee struck an exposed electrical box that was knee-high just past the padded fence. "About to debut, about to lead off the next inning and then something like that happens".
