The career of
But Cowart is trying to make the best of it this year with Inland Empire. He reverted to his former batting stance, which features his hands farther away from his body and a more upright position. The results speak for themselves.
Cowart is not tearing the cover off the ball, but he has certainly improved. After an April in which he managed a slash line of .179/.229/.285, he is at .254/.338/.441 in May. And he has been particularly hot lately with a .308 mark in his last 10 games.
"[The stance] is something I wanted to go back to because it's when I was best in my career," Cowart told the Orange County Register.
The 22-year-old Cowart peaked in 2012, when he totaled 16 home runs and 103 RBI at two different minor-league levels.
According to the Orange County Register, Cowart will resume switch-hitting again, most likely in an attempt to spark his once promising career. Cowart is coming off of two poor seasons in the minors, which led to the Angels not inviting him to big league camp this spring training.
The Angels are also discussing the possibility of converting Cowart into a pitcher if his hitting doesn't improve. Cowart hit just .223 with Double-A Arkansas a year ago.
