Cowgill accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Columbus.

EDGE Analysis

The Indians ruled Cowgill out for a September callup and bumped him from the 40-man roster, but he will remain in the organization for the time being. Cowgill, now 30, has hit .234/.297/.329 in parts of six major league seasons.

Cowgill was designated for assignment Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

This move was done to create room for Adam Moore on the 40-man roster. Over 100 games with Columbus in 2016, Cowgill owns a .236/.310/.326 line.

Cowgill was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

With Lonnie Chisenhall being activated from the DL, Cowgill was optioned down to Triple-A to make room for him. Cowgill was 1-for-12 in the big leagues after hitting just .188 last season for the Angels. He'll try to right the ship in Triple-A.

Cowgill is in the lineup and batting ninth for Tuesday's game against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Cowgill is just 1-for-9 to start the season, but will get the start in place of Jose Ramirez. His fantasy value is minimal due to a lack of playing time and offensive production.

Cowgill will bat ninth and play right field in Wednesday's game against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Cowgill is hitless in five at-bats this season, but draws into the lineup over Jose Ramirez in the outfield while Marlon Byrd slides over to left field. Cowgill is coming off arguably his worst season last year, hitting .188 in 55 games with the Angels. Upon Michael Brantley's return, Cowgill will likely find at-bats extremely difficult to come by.

Cowgill is in the lineup for Monday's season opener against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Cowgill opens the season as the Indians' fourth outfielder, but he will make a start Opening Day with the Indians loading up on right-handed hitters against Red Sox star lefty David Price. Cowgill will man right field and hit ninth in Monday's batting order.

The Indians informed Cowgill on Monday that he will break camp with the big club.

EDGE Analysis

Cowgill hit just .143 (6-for-42) this spring, but with fellow outfielders Michael Brantley (shoulder), Lonnie Chisenhall (forearm) and Abraham Almonte (suspension) out or limited Opening Day, the Indians decided to keep him around. While Cowgill will be part of the Indians' roster to open the season, he did hit just .188 last season, so he may be the outfielder to go when a spot is needed.

Cowgill has struggled at the plate this spring, hitting just .132 (5-for-38) but his ability to handle all three outfield spots defensively may help him make the Opening Day roster, MLB.com reports. "It was hard, because he was struggling so much. But, what he does - the defensive player, the baserunner - the things he can do are there," manager Terry Francona said.

EDGE Analysis

Cowgill did have a pair of hits against Clayton Kershaw on Thursday and he may still make the Opening Day roster as the Indians figure to carry five outfielders to start the season but he may not have much of a role given the surprising spring of rookie Tyler Naquin.

Cowgill could benefit from Abraham Almonte's suspension, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cowgill has been in competition with Rajai Davis in left field, but now that Almonte is out for 80 games after being suspended for PED use, his path to playing time could be a little easier. Davis could potentially slide into Almonte's center field role, allowing Cowgill to take left field. However, once Michael Brantley returns from his shoulder injury in early May he will likely become a reserve. Cleveland's outfield situation is worth tracking throughout spring training.

Cowgill was traded to the Indians on Wednesday in exchange for cash considerations.

EDGE Analysis

Cowgill logged 74 plate appearances in 2015 with the Angels, but posted his worst strikeout rate since 2011 (25.7 percent), while failing to provide much power. The 29-year-old will likely find himself competing for a reserve outfield role to begin the season.
