Angels prospect 3B Kaleb Cowart went 2-for-3 with two triples and two RBI on Thursday for Triple-A Salt Lake.
He also worked a walk and scored a pair of runs in the game. After opening the season down in the California League, Cowart was promoted to Triple-A last week when the Angels called up Kyle Kubitza. The 23-year-old has caught fire in June, as he’s batting .412/.483/.745 with 13 extra-base hits and 14 RBI in 15 games between both levels. Meanwhile, Cowart is batting .360/.370/.760 with six extra-base hits (one home run) and eight RBI in eight games since joining Salt Lake. Unfortunately, the hot streak doesn’t obscure the fact that he posted a .222/.286/.312 batting line in 258 games at the Double-A level over the last two seasons. Jun 19 - 3:10 PM

Angels prospect 3B Kaleb Cowart has been promoted to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Cowart’s promotion to the minor league’s highest level had little to do with his performance this season, as he was batting just .242/.326/.387 in 221 plate appearances at High-A Inland Empire. Rather, it was a move that corresponded with the Angels decision to call-up third baseman Kyle Kubitza. Cowart, 23, spent the last two seasons at Double-A Arkansas, where he batted a combined .222/.286/.312 with 12 home runs and 223 strikeouts in 258 games. He’s swung a hot bat of late, however, with a .522 average (12-for-23) and seven doubles in his last seven contests.

Angels third base prospect Kaleb Cowart has resumed switch-hitting.

Cowart had tried batting just left-handed for a while, but the experiment didn't work. The former top prospect's stock has fallen rapidly the last couple years to the point that the Angels have discussed making him into a pitcher if his hitting doesn't improve.
Mar 30 - 6:55 PM

Angels third base prospect Kaleb Cowart went 3-for-4 with a triple for Double-A Arkansas on Monday, raising his season line to .229/.301/.329.

After a breakout in 2012, Cowart has struggled to get his OPS above 650 while in his second season in Double-A. Cowart has more stolen bases and increased his walk rate, but he still isn't hitting for a good average or power, and the likelihood that he will reach the major leagues is decreasing.

Angels prospect 3B Kaleb Cowart was 2-for-4 with a home run, triple and two RBI on Thursday for Double-A Arkansas.

The 22-year-old also drew a walk and scored four times in the game. After struggling to the tune of a .162 batting average and .523 OPS in May, Cowart has picked up the pace this month with a .262/.333/.393 batting line and improved 12-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 18 games. Unfortunately, he still looks like a far cry from the player he showed signs of becoming during his outstanding 2012 full-season debut, when he posted an .810 OPS with 54 extra-base hits and 103 RBI in 135 games between both Class-A levels.

Angels third base prospect Kaleb Cowart went 4-for-5 with a double for Double-A Arkansas on Wednesday.

After a hot start, Cowart has struggled, and is hitting .250/.313/.318 for the season. He has improved from 2013, but if he does not start hitting soon, he may never reach the major leagues.

Angels third base prospect Kaleb Cowart is hitting .370/.455/.556 through his first eight games of 2014.

Cowart has returned to Double-A Arkansas for 2014 after hitting a paltry .221/.279/.301 with 20 doubles, one triple, and six home runs to go with 124 strikeouts in 2013. His overall potential is limited, but if he continues to hit he could be in line for a promotion to Triple-A Salt Lake. If there is an injury that keeps David Freese out for a while, Cowart could make his major league debut in 2014.

Angels reassigned 3B Kaleb Cowart, C Jett Bandy, and INFs Eric Stamets and Alex Yarbrough to minor league camp.

There are no surprises in this group. One of the club's top prospects, Cowart had one hit in seven at-bats this spring.

Angels reassigned 3B Kaleb Cowart, 2B Taylor Lindsey and OF Randal Grichuk to minor league camp.

Baseball America included Cowart (No. 1), Grichuk (No. 6) and Lindsey (No. 7) among the team's top 10 prospects during the offseason. Cowart, a 20-year-old third baseman, is considered the organization's top prospect now that Mike Trout is in the big leagues and Jean Segura is in Milwaukee.

Kaleb Cowart went 2-for-2 with a bases-clearing double Wednesday in an exhibition game against Italy.

To be fair, Chris Denorfia likely would have caught the ball if he didn't take a bad route, but it will go down as a double in the box score. Regarded as the Angels' third baseman of the future, Cowart batted .276/.358/.452 with 16 home runs and an .810 OPS last season between Class-A Cedar Rapids and High-A Inland Empire. Baseball America recently ranked him as the game's No. 67 prospect.

The Angels have agreed to terms with first-round pick RHP Kaleb Cowart.

Teams have until midnight on Monday to lock up picks from June's draft but many first-rounders remain unsigned. Cowart was selected 18th overall out of a Georgia high school and projects as a future top starter with a high-velocity fastball. He was handed a $2.3 million signing bonus.

The Angels are "fairly close" to a deal with top pick RHP Kaleb Cowart, according to's Lyle Spencer.

The Angels selected Cowart 18th overall out of high school in this year's first-year player draft. He's also considering a scholarship from Florida State University, but it would be shocking if he opts to remain an amateur. The righty has a power fastball and projects as a future top starter.

The Angels are confident that they will be able to find common ground with top pick RHP Kaleb Cowart before the August 16 signing deadline.

Cowart was selected 18th overall out of a Georgia high school. He has a scholarship from Florida State University that he's also considering and is known to want a bonus worth more than $2 million, but the Angels will do what it takes to get a deal struck. Cowart's been clocked at 97 MPH.

The Angels selected 3B/RHP Kaleb Cowart (18th), RHP Cam Bedrosian (29th) and OF Chevy Clarke (30th) with their three first-round picks Monday.

Three Georgia high school products. Cowart was announced as a third baseman, which is what he prefers. Many teams, though, were higher on him as a pitcher. Bedrosian has the big fastball-slider combo to follow in the footsteps of his father Steve, who saved 184 games as a major leaguer. Clarke is a speedy center fielder with some power potential. None of these guys will help the Angels for a few years, but there wasn't a reach in the bunch.
