Angels' Cowgill lands on DL

Anaheim, CA ( - The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim placed outfielder Collin Cowgill on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right wrist.

The move is retroactive to May 26 as he suffered the injury while taking batting practice on Sunday but appeared in a game against the Padres on Monday.

He is batting just .180 with a home run and two RBI in 35 games this season.

Other moves on Thursday saw the team select the contract of outfielder Alfredo Marte from Triple-A Salt Lake (PCL), add outfielder Kirk Nieuwenheis to the active roster and designate infielder Marc Krauss for assignment.

Nieuwenheis was acquired from the Mets for cash considerations on Wednesday.
