Mets | Collin Cowgill demoted

The New York Mets optioned OF Collin Cowgill to Triple-A Las Vegas Friday, May 3, to make room on the roster for OF Andrew Brown. Cowgill was hitting only .157 (8-for-510 with two home runs and eight RBIs this year, and he was hitless in his last 13 at-bats and made a costly error earlier this week. Brown was hitting .367 (36-for-98) with two home runs and 27 RBIs in 25 games at Las Vegas, and he had an active 11-game hitting streak and led the Pacific Coast League with 13 doubles.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is mainly for outfield depth, but he could split playing time in center field with Juan Lagares. Temper some of the offensive expectations for Brown, since the PCL is probably the most hitter-friendly league in the minors. For now, he's only an option in NL leagues unless he receives consistent playing time.
