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.
