Former UK outfielder Collin Cowgill is on the move. The Arizona rookie has been promoted to the Diamonbacks’ team in South Bend.
Cowgill, a fifth-round pick in last month’s draft, began his pro career in the Northwest League, with Arizona’s short-season team in Yakima, Wash.
There, he led the Bears, and the league, in home runs. Cowgill homered 11 times in 16 games, including a three- home run night on July 2.
The Henry Clay product joins former UK teammate Sean Coughlin in South Bend. Coughlin is a catcher and designated hitter for the Silver Hawks, who play in the Midwest League.
