Cowgill (sprained right wrist) has been shut down for the last week, the Associated Press reports.

Manager Mike Scioscia said that Cowgill is still experiencing some irritation in his hand, so he'll remain in shutdown mode until the soreness dissipates. Cowgill was placed on the 60-day DL earlier this month, which will prevent him from returning to the Angels until late July.

Cowgill (wrist) has been transferred to the 60-day DL.

The move opens up a 40-man roster spot for Cory Rasmus, who was activated from the 60-day DL on Friday and optioned to Triple-A. Cowgill is still at least a week away from returning, and the move simply affords the Angels some short-term flexibility.

Cowgill (wrist) took batting practice Monday and could be close to heading out on a rehab assignment, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

Cowgill continues to work back slowly from a sprained right wrist, and he's now been out for more than a month. The team still has not issued a timetable, but considering he's close to a rehab stint, a mid-July return to the Angels seems reasonable.

Cowgill (wrist) will begin hitting Wednesday, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

Cowgill has been out since late-May with a wrist injury, and he suffered a setback in his recovery on June 13. He's been shut down for the past week-and-a-half, and he'll restart his hitting program from the beginning. The outfielder is without a firm return timetable, and the team will likely bring him along slowly in hopes of avoiding another setback.

Cowgill's (wrist) Monday visit with a specialist did not reveal any new information about his sprained right wrist, the Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reports.

Cowgill had a setback in his recovery late last week, just a few days after he resumed taking batting practice. Angels manager Mike Scioscia previously suggested Cowgill might not need a rehab assignment, but with the outfielder's absence now stretching to at least four weeks, a stint in the minors seems much more likely.

Cowgill (wrist) had a setback in his recovery and will see a specialist in Arizona early next week, MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports.

Taylor Featherston and Kyle Kubitza both worked out in left field Saturday, as the Angels are really low on outfield depth. While a sprained wrist isn't the most serious injury, it sounds like it should keep Cowgill sidelined for at least a few more weeks.

Cowgill (wrist) will take batting practice on the field prior to Wednesday's game, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Cowgill has made good progress recently in his recovery from a right wrist sprain, going from dry swings to batting practice in the span of six days. While nothing's set in stone, manager Mike Scioscia suggested Cowgill may not even need a minor league rehab assignment before returning to action.

Cowgill (wrist) took dry swings Friday, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

Cowgill remains several weeks away from returning to the Angels, but he's progressing in his recovery since hitting the DL at the end of May. The expectation is that he'll require a rehab stint at some point before returning to the big league club.

Cowgill (hand) could be headed to the disabled list, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Cowgill has missed three straight starts for the Angels. Fletcher believes that if Cowgill is headed to the disabled list, Kirk Nieuwenhuis could be called up to fill his position.
