Former Yankees outfielder Dustin Fowler suing White Sox over season-ending injury

Former Yankee outfielder Dustin Fowler has filed a lawsuit against the White Sox and the company that manages Guaranteed Rate Field for a serious knee injury he sustained while playing in Chicago last season.

Fowler's lawsuit claims the White Sox and the state agency were "negligent in not securing the unpadded electrical box he collided with along the right field line during the June 29 game". When he tried to stand up, he fell to the ground, prompting a gasp from the crowd.

The Fowler was reportedly diagnosed with an open rupture of the patellar tendon in his right knee which required emergency surgery. In addition, the suit alleges the White Sox and Sports Facilities Authority failed to adequately inspect the right field wall and the box.

Both the Sox and the the agency knew of the unsafe condition and had ample time to improve them before the incident, the suit claims.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by the Sun-Times, Fowler suffered "severe and permanent" internal and external injuries, as well as mental pain and anguish.

22-year-old Fowler was a huge prospect for the Yanks - which expected BIG things from him when he made his Major League Baseball debut on June 29, 2017, when NY played the White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Fowler was traded to the Oakland Athletics on July 31 as part of the Sonny Gray trade, and was a highly regarded prospect before the injury.
