Cowgill went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in a win over the Rangers on Monday.

Kole Calhoun was held out with a calf injury Tuesday, which allowed Cowgill to hit in the leadoff spot. The 31-year-old will see the majority of his time against southpaws this season, but could have value in that capacity, as he tallied a .790 OPS against his opposite hand in 2014.

Cowgill will get the start in left field Tuesday.

Matt Joyce will sit with lefty James Paxton on the mound -- a trend that should continue, at least in the early going. Cowgill has a career .277/.337/.414 slash line against southpaws, which isn't mind blowing, but it's a great deal better than his .206/.275/.262 line against righties.

Cowgill is sporting a .356/.396 /.533 batting line with six doubles in 45 at-bats this spring.

There was some talk coming into camp that Matt Joyce would man left field full-time in the absence of Josh Hamilton (shoulder), but Cowgill's strong performance, combined with the fact that Joyce has missed time due to a shoulder injury, could result in the 28-year-old seeing time as the right-handed half of a platoon to begin the season.

Cowgill is not in the lineup Monday against the Mariners, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Cowgill will make his fifth straight start in the outfield Thursday against the Rangers, MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports.

Josh Hamilton's absence due to a shoulder injury has paved the way for Cowgill to pick up consistent starts, and he's made the most of it to date. He's batting 4-for-15 with a homer, four RBI, two runs and a stolen base during his previous four starts. It remains uncertain when or if Hamilton will return to the lineup before the season is out, perhaps making Cowgill an intriguing pickup in AL-only or deeper formats.
