The way Kaleb Cowart's pro career began, everything pointed to a quick ascent to the big leagues as one of the top third base prospects in the game. But after that very successful first full season, things haven't gone nearly as smoothly for him.
The former first-round pick was once the top prospect in the Angels' organization and a Top 100 caliber player, one who hit .276/.358/.452 with 103 RBIs and reached the Class A Advanced California League at age 20 during that first year. He's now No. 4 on the organization's Top 20 list and has spent two years at Double-A, hitting a combined .222/.286/.312 in the process.
