RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Acquired in the Trevor Cahill trade during the 2011 offseason, Cowgill started 2012 with the A's, but was sent down to Sacramento in April because the team had a glut of outfielders. Cowgill had a less than exciting year for Sacramento, so he was deemed expendable in Oakland. Traded to the Mets in December, Cowgill has a clearer path to big league at-bats than he had in either of the last two seasons. It is expected that Cowgill will provide speed on the basepaths in a platoon role starting mostly against left-handed pitching if he makes it onto the 25-man roster.

2012

Although the D-Backs didn't have an everyday role for him, Cowgill made his big league debut in 2011 and could be in position to secure the fourth outfielder role this spring. The .354/.430/.554 line should be taken with an appropriate grain of salt given that it came in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League and on the strength of an inflated .397 BABIP. Still, there are interesting tools here, and Cowgill could be a nice cheap source of stolen bases given his ability to draw walks and thieve extra bags (30-for-33) when given the green light on the basepaths. His path to playing time became clearer following his inclusion in the trade to Oakland that saw the Diamondbacks land Trevor Cahill.

2011

In a full season at Double-A, Cowgill held his own and actually turned in his best professional season at age 24. Not only did he show ample skills across the board with the bat, Cowgill also converted 25-of-34 stolen-base attempts. The concerns here can be tied to his lefty-righty splits as he hit .269/.338/.460 against right-handers and .322/.411/.474 against the southpaws. The future path in the big leagues may be that of a fourth outfielder, but Cowgill has drawn comparisons to Cody Ross and his combination of power, speed and ability to play all three outfield spots. Look for Cowgill to start 2011 at Triple-A Reno with an eye toward getting his first taste of Arizona at some point during the second half of the season.
