Angels recalled INF Kaleb Cowart from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Cowart was hitting .303/.352/.454 with two home runs and three stolen bases in 39 games this season at the Triple-A level. But the infielder batted just .174/.255/.283 last year at the major league level and can remain ignored in standard fantasy formats. May 25 - 12:37 PM

Angels optioned INF Kaleb Cowart to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Cowart worked at several positions to increase his versatility this spring, but was unable to secure a bench spot on the club's Opening Day roster. He should get his chance with the Angels at some point during the 2016 campaign.

Kaleb Cowart is working out at second base and left field in addition to third base.

Kyle Kubitza is also seeing reps at both positions as the Angels look to increase the players' versatility. Cowart, 23, was once considered the club's third baseman of the future and did have a nice bounce-back season in the minors in 2015. However, his star has faded rapidly the last few years and he might ultimately profile as a backup, so it's not a surprise to see the Angels trying him out at multiple positions.
Feb 19 - 11:54 AM

Kaleb Cowart went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and a steal in Friday's loss to the Indians.

The single was just Cowart's fourth hit since he was called up on August 18. He was the 18th overall selection in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft and hit .323/.395/.491 with six homers and 45 RBI over 62 games at Triple-A Salt Lake. As a 23-year-old, he still has a ways to go before we can truly determine what he'll be at the big league level.

Kaleb Cowart hit his first major league home run Saturday off the Blue Jays' Marco Estrada.

It's Cowart's lone hit in 16 at-bats to date. We wouldn't be too optimistic about it being a sign of things to come.

Kaleb Cowart went 0-for-3 on Friday and has opened his big-league career 0-for-13 with six strikeouts.

It's no surprise that Cowart is looking overmatched against big-league pitching. It's also something that doesn't figure to change right away. The Angels really should have stuck with Conor Gillaspie at third base and hoped for the best.

Angels purchased the contract of 3B Kaleb Cowart from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Cowart, the 18th overall pick in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft, has hit .323/.395/.491 with six home runs and 45 RBI in 62 games this season at the Triple-A level. He should see semi-regular starts at third base while David Freese recovers from a fractured index finger. The 23-year-old will be making his major league debut Tuesday night against the White Sox.

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.

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.
Mon, Mar 30, 2015 06:55:00 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.
Fri, Jun 20, 2014 06:30:00 PM

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.
Thu, May 1, 2014 10:39:00 AM

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.
Sat, Apr 12, 2014 09:56:00 AM

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.
