Coby Cowgill sent to high-A Lake Elsinore

TinCaps pitcher Coby Cowgill is flying to California today to join high-A Lake Elsinore, he wrote on his Twitter account.

"Well it's been a roller coaster first half of the season, but excited," he posted.

Cowgill thanked the TinCaps and team president Mike Nutter for an "awesome" first half and expressed his wish that they win the Midwest League title.

Cowgill started seven games before going on the disabled list May 29 with what TinCaps manager Michael Collins described as a very minor injury. After Cowgill was reinstated June 11, he pitched twice in relief.

Overall, Cowgill was 2-2 with a 7.31 ERA and allowed 40 hits in 32 innings.

The move came as a surprise, and because Mallex Smith also was promoted to Lake Elsinore and Adrian De Horta was demoted to short-season Eugene, the TinCaps now have only 22 active players. Corresponding moves should be announced shortly as second-half play begins tonight at West Michigan.
