Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Conor Gillaspie was designated for assignment Tuesday, Aug. 18, and 3B Kaleb Cowart was called up from Class AAA Salt Lake City in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: The Angels are searching for offense right now, so Cowart ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is next in line at the hot corner while David Freese is sidelined with an injury. Cowart is starting and hitting ninth tonight, but he won't be available on FantasyScore. He hit .323 (71-for-220) with six home runs and 45 RBI at Salt Lake. Cowart is a short-term fix for corner infield depth in AL leagues.

Free-agent SPs Max Scherzer (Tigers) and James Shields (Royals) aren't targets for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim this offseason, but a cost-controlled third base prospect is. 3B David Freese will be a free agent after the 2015 season, and the Angels don't currently have anyone to step in at the hot corner after that. 3B Kaleb Cowart has struggled in Class AA the last two years, and the team is unsure if they can rely on him.

"He hit some pretty good pitchers today, and that was encouraging. And he's looking great defensively, too."
