Collin Cowgill homered and singled before being removed for a pinch-hitter Saturday against the Mets.
Cowgill started against the lefty Jon Niese and was replaced by J.B. Shuck after the righty came in. Since Shuck will continue to start against right-handers for now, Cowgill will have limited value in AL-only leagues. Apr 13 - 1:45 AM

Collin Cowgill finished 2-for-3 with three runs batted in against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Cowgill blasted a three-run home run off of Alexi Ogando in the second inning, his second homer of the spring. Cowgill has had a great spring through 27 at-bats, making a strong case for inclusion on the Angels' 25-man roster as a back-up outfielder. He is battling J.B. Shuck for the honor.

Angels optioned OF Collin Cowgill to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Cowgill is hitting .298 (14-for-47) with two homers in 25 games with the Angels, but he was expendable with Peter Bourjos back from the DL. Look for him to return in September.

Cowgill hit a grand slam on Opening Day, but he batted just .130/.149/.196 over 18 games since then. Andrew Brown has replaced him on the roster.

Collin Cowgill went 3-for-6 with a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies.

Cowgill has struggled since his big Opening Day, as he had just one hit in his previous five starts. He had a nice showing in Tuesday's nightcap, though, before a late Ruben Tejada error cost the Metropolitans the game. He'll continue to start in center field against lefties and should be owned in NL-only formats.
