Collin Cowgill (rib) is back in the lineup for Saturday's Cactus League game against the Giants.

Cowgill is back after sitting out two weeks with tightness in his left rib cage. A non-roster invitee, Cowgill is hoping to crack the Opening Day roster as the Padres' fourth outfielder.

Collin Cowgill was scratched from the Padres' lineup Saturday with tightness in his rib cage.

It's unclear how long this might keep Cowgill sidelined. The non-roster invitee is 3-for-17 so far at the plate this spring as he tries to win a bench job.

Collin Cowgill went 1-for-3 with a two-run double in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Diamondbacks.

Cowgill came through with a two-run double in the fifth inning to boost the Padres to a 6-4 advantage. The Padres inked him to a minor league contract at the beginning of February. With a .234/.297/.329 triple-slash in the majors, there is no real fantasy upside of note here.

Cowgill made just 14 plate appearances at the major league level in 2016 -- all with the Indians -- and managed just one hit. The 30-year-old outfielder is a .234/.297/.329 career hitter at the major league level. He'll look to battle for an Opening Day roster spot in Padres camp this spring.

Indians designated OF Collin Cowgill for assignment.

The moves clears a 40-man roster spot for the Indians' first wave of September callups. Cowgill went 1-for-12 (.083) with Cleveland back in April but had been stationed at Triple-A Columbus since.

Collin Cowgill has cracked the Indians' roster.

Michael Brantley is recovering from shoulder surgery, Lonnie Chisenhall is on the disabled list with a forearm injury, and Abraham Almonte got popped this spring with a PED suspension. So there could be some starts available to Cowgill in Cleveland while all three of those outfielders work back. That doesn't necessarily make him fantasy relevant. Cowgill, 29, is a 236/.299/.334 career major league hitter.

Collin Cowgill and Joey Butler are the favorites to land Cleveland's last two outfield spots.

With Michael Brantley (labrum) likely out for the first month, the Indians will have to mix and match at outfield. Rajai Davis, Abraham Almonte and Lonnie Chisenhall are assured roster spots, but the rest of Cleveland's outfield is up for grabs. Cowgill has 308 games of big league experience while Butler saw a career-high 257 at-bats for Tampa Bay last season. Michael Choice, Robbie Grossman and Shane Robinson will also be at Indians camp.

Indians and OF Collin Gowgill avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1 million contract.

The Indians acquired Cowgill from the Angels on Wednesday and immediately inked him to a $1 million contract, as he was eligible for arbitration. He hit .188/.233/.290 with a home run in 69 at-bats with the Angels during the 2015 campaign. A wrist injury forced him to miss much of the season. He'll provide outfield depth with the Tribe entering 2016.

Indians acquired OF Collin Cowgill from the Angels for cash considerations.

A wrist injury sidelined Cowgill from May through August, though he did manage a cup of coffee in September. The 29-year-old outfielder struggled in 69 at-bats with the Angels, hitting just .188/.233/.290 with a singular home run. He'll serve as bench depth for the Indians.

Collin Cowgill (wrist) has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment with High-A Inland Empire.

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register suspects that Cowgill, who's been out since late May, will be optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake once he's deemed fully healthy. The utility outfielder should be a September callup.
