Goldschmidt and Cowgill

Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers indicated that Paul Goldschmidt and Collin Cowgill are candidates to be called up around the All-Star break.
Goldschmidt has been one of the minor league's top sluggers this season, batting .344/.465/.687 with 21 home runs at Double-A in the pitcher-friendly Southern League. The D'Backs haven't gotten much production at first base, and it sounds like Towers might be willing to have Goldschmidt bypass Triple-A and make the jump to the big leagues. Cowgill, an outfielder, is also on his radar after batting .372/.438/.615 with 11 homers and 19 steals over his first 60 games at Triple-A.



Both could have a nice impact. I'll def take a flyer on Goldschmidt in my 20 team dynasty since I missed out on Hosmer and Rizzo. He doesn't have thier upside but still could def help in the power cats. Don't know much about Cowgill, anyone?

The AA Mobile Baybears uber-stud Paul Goldschmidt whacked his 23rd jack of the season tonight (6/24) and drove in 4!! He's currently hitting .323 and has plated 65 fellow Baybears in 72 games.

I have a good feeling about this kid getting to the Show and producing right away. He turns 24 in September.

The DBacks GM is watching him thoroughly and sees him up after the All Start break.

From what I've heard of Cowgill, he might be a part of a platoon with Parra if things play out right, but I wouldn't count on much more than that. Upton and Young aren't moving anywhere, and with Parra's plus defense in left he's going to be hard to completely nudge to the side. Worth a look in NL-only and super-deep mixed leagues, but Goldy is definitely the guy I'd spend that spot on in both cases if possible ...

Goldschmidt has 6 RBI in his last 3 games through Wednesday, a night he smacked HR #24. BA is down to .318 but the OPS is still over 1.000.

He jacked #26 and has 81 RBI through 88 games in Mobile. He's hitting .311.

CBS is stating that Brandon Allen is being called up (last chance?) and that Goldie will head to AAA.
