Cowgill (rib) went 1-for-3 with a run scored in the Padres' Cactus League game against the Giants on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Cowgill had been sidelined for the previous two weeks with rib-cage tightness, which has effectively taken him out of the running for a reserve gig in the outfield. Look for him to be reassigned to minor-league camp in the coming days and open 2017 with Triple-A El Paso.

Cowgill was scratched from Saturday's lineup with rib cage tightness.

EDGE Analysis

The issue doesn't seem overly serious, and it's likely that he'll be back in the lineup relatively soon. Cowgill is in a battle with Jabari Blash, Nick Buss, and Rafael Ortega for a reserve outfield spot, but the 30-year-old is likely bound for the minors to start the season.

Cowgill signed a minor league contract with the Padres on Tuesday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

He joins Jabari Blash, Nick Buss, and Rafael Ortega in the competition for a reserve outfield spot. Cowgill spent most of 2016 with Triple-A Columbus as part of the Cleveland organization, where he slashed .234/.311/.320. He's a long shot to make the roster out of spring training and likely bound for the minors.

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.
