(5/24/2015) Angels left fielder Collin Cowgill was a late scratch from Sunday's lineup. He was replaced by Matt Joyce

Cowgill has been bothered by a sore back and was unable to complete pregame batting practice, per MLB.com.

Also, with a lefthander facing the Angels, second baseman Johnny Giavotella is out of the lineup for just the fourth time this season.

"He's been in the air a lot the last part of this little dry spell," manager Mike Scioscia said to the Orange County Register. "His game is really line drives, hard groundballs, working counts. I don't think there's pressing. I haven't seen his demeanor change or his game change. We're looking to get our offense deeper, and he’s an important guy to lengthen our lineup."

He's replaced by Taylor Featherston.

Angels' Kole Calhoun not in lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

Calhoun went 2 for 4 with a double, a home run and three RBI Saturday. The Angels will use shortstop Erick Aybar as the leadoff man with Calhoun on the bench, and Collin Cowgill will play right field and bat seventh Sunday.

Angels' Matt Joyce gets night off vs. LHP Jason Vargas


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Angels outfielder Matt Joyce was given the night off against Kansas City left-hander Jason Vargas. It's the second time this season he's been given a game off against a southpaw. Joyce has just one hit in his first eight at-bats this season.

"He's going to do it [hit against lefties]," hitting coach Baylor said of Joyce, per the Orange County Register. "He's going to be an important factor for us, no doubt. He's got too good of a swing."

Collin Cowgill took his spot in left field and is batting eighth. Meanwhile, David Freese will bat in the cleanup spot, with C.J. Cron fifth.


Angels go with Collin Cowgill over Matt Joyce in left field Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) The Angels will start Collin Cowgill in left field Tuesday against the Mariners over Matt Joyce, per the team's starting lineup. Cowgill, who is considered a platoon with Joyce in left, will make his season debut Tuesday and bat eighth.

Cowgill, who will face left-hander James Paxton Tuesday, is a career .277 hitter against lefties with seven home runs and 27 RBI.

Manager Mike Scioscia likes what he's seen from Matt Joyce, but wants to play the matchups a bit, reports MLB.com.

"Matt will get his chance to play versus some lefties at times, and at times, we're going to match up," Scioscia said. "The one thing with Matt -- when he's swinging the bat well, you don't just want to automatically take him out because of a left-hander."


Angels' Collin Cowgill not taking spot for granted


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Angels outfielder Collin Cowgill is not taking his spot for granted, according to MLB.com.

"I understand how the game works," Cowgill said. "I understand a lot, maybe more so than a lot of people, because I've found myself in a lot of situations. I don't take anything for granted. So I'm going to keep trying to work and earn it."

Cowgill has spent time with four different teams in his young career, and understands how often you can lose your role. With Josh Hamilton expected to miss time early in the season, it appears Cowgill's spot on the roster is safe, even though he remains skeptical. 

"If [Angels manager Mike] Scioscia's going to play me, it's because I deserve it," Cowgill said. "He's going to play me because he thinks I give him a chance to win, and that's the only way I want it to be."

The 28-year-old hit .250/.330/.354 over 260 at-bats last season. 


Hamilton injury could free up at-bats for Angels' Joyce, Cowgill, Cron


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) With Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton doubtful for the start of the season due to shoulder surgery, his absence could open the door for more playing time in the outfield for Matt Joyce and Collin Cowgill. It could also mean more at-bats for C.J. Cron at DH, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“We don't envision this being a long-term issue, but 6-8 weeks is not a short-term thing,” general manager Jerry Dipoto said of Hamilton's injury. “We'll have a better idea when he gets back on the field doing baseball things.”

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cowgill was eligible for arbitration for the first time this season, but he's not scheduled to reach free agency until after the 2018 season due to his Super 2 status. He hit .250/.330/.354 with five home runs and 24 RBI in 260 at-bats in 2014.


Report: Angels' Richards, Freese expected to be tendered offers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
