The Mets have announced they have acquired OF Collin Cowgill from the A’s in exchange for Minor League infielder Jefry Marte. Cowgill, 26, was part of the package that went from Arizona to Oakland in last offseason’s Trevor Cahill deal. After a solid season at Triple-A in 2011, he slumped this season year with Triple-A Sacramento batting .254 with 33 runs, 17 doubles, a triple, four home runs and 37 RBI in 61 games. He hit .269 with two doubles, a home run and nine RBI in 38 games with Oakland. With Sacramento, Cowgill batted .254 with 33 runs, 17 doubles, a triple, four home runs and 37 RBI in 61 games. He’s capable of playing all three outfield spots and hits right-handed, so Cowgill has a good chance to fill a bench role for the Mets or perhaps work his way into a platoon. Marte is a 22-year-old third baseman who spent this season hitting .251 with a .687 OPS in 129 games at Double-A. He’s yet to crack a .750 OPS in four full seasons.
