Angels reclaim Cowart....

Great move. If we’re giving Walsh the chance to redefine what a UT man is, doesn’t hurt to give Cowart the same chance. Cowart plays more positions and is better at those positions than Walsh anyhow. Imagine if they both excel this spring and we have two active two-way players this year.

Then don’t.  This is so far from being important.  He isn’t taking anyone’s place.  He is a guy that will be the first off the 40 man if they have a chance to get someone else.  He will then clear waivers and work on pitching in the minors.

Just saying, I’m not expecting anything from this guy.

hey - Ohtani may have started something.

in recent years we've seen more teams in either very long extra inning games or in blow outs (usually the team losing ) the use of position players pitching,

some do OK - some do terrible, none of the position player pitchers do great.

so - why not have your 25th guy on the roster be a depth MIF/3B guy who can also pitch an inning or two if called upon.

I feel the same way about DH/C -- have a guy on the roster who can DH and serve as your third string catcher if called upon. 

the return with the 'two way' player designation indicates Cowart realizes he really needs to bring something more to the table than his prior efforts to make the opening day roster.

By the way, it was Cowart who came to the Angels about pitching in September, not vice versa. 

Based on the team's willingness to sign him as a position player (due to his desire to try), it would appear that the decision had to be Cowart's, and that he realized that his window of opportunity was closing, and was willing to try the pitching again.
