RBI (107) A Hot Corner Prospect...

Recently I did a post about top Angels slugging prospect C.J. Cron, as highly rated as Cron is within the organization he is actually ranked as the 2nd best prospect. In front of Cron is his Inland Empire 66ers teammate 3rd baseman Kaleb Cowart.

The switch hitting prospect was taken 18th overall by the halos in the 1st round of the 2010 MLB draft.  The Georgia native has found more consistent power and a better feel for the strike zone and can eventually prove to be the 3rd base piece that has been consistently eluding recent Angel teams.

After the trade for Zack Greinke the Angel minor league organization has been called a bit bare, but Cowart is not only ranked as the best halo prospect, but has been ranked by mlb.com as the 49th best prospect overall in the minor leagues to date.
I had Kaleb Cowart sign this mini bat for me at the same time that C.J. signed his when the 66ers were brought to visit Angel Stadium. If he gets called up it'll be nice to have a Kaleb Coward autograph already crossed off the list.
