Mets Acquire Collin Cowgill
Posted By Sports Talk Florida Rumors On December 18, 2012 @ 1:26 PM In MLB,News and Rumors | No Comments
The Athletics have traded outfielder Collin Cowgill to the Mets for minor league infielder Jefry Marte, the team announced. The trade frees up a 40-man roster spot for Oakland, who officially announced the Hiroyuki Nakajima signing as well.
Cowgill, 26, was originally drafted by the Diamondbacks before being sent to the A’s in the Trevor Cahill trade. He’s a .255/.319/.311 hitter in 219 career big league plate appearances and a .315/.384/.482 hitter in 741 career Triple-A plate appearances. As a right-handed hitter with plenty of experience in all three outfield spots, Cowgill has a strong chance to open the season with New York.
