Live in the OC, the Angels are the team I support. What I am hearing on the radio/papers and so forth is that its still a toss up. They feel the DH spot will be a revolving door until someone solidifies their spot. You guys are also forgetting about Davannon, he will get a shot too.
I love Kotchman, but I don't see them wasting a year getting a handful of ABs and not playing the field at all (he has great defensive skills to go to waste). He will more than likely be in AAA to start the year. However, with Dallas out Quinlan will be at 3B, but when Dallas gets back Quinlan is another person in the revolving DH door.
This is not mentioning Morales, who hasn't been granted a visa yet. He kinda lost his spot due to this, but he was also supposed to get a shot.
Also, Tim Salmon should be back at some point and he will see some time as the DH. No matter where Kotchman ends up it is still very crowded.
Here is the list of guys sharing the DH role:
Quin/Dallas (whoever isn't at 3B)
Figgins (Kennedy will come back)
Vlad (Scoscia will give him a day off in the field, but wants his bat in the lineup)
GA (same as Vlad)
My advice, stay away from these guys if you are looking for a DH, very crowded this year for the Angels.
