Cowart, the 18th overall pick in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft, has batted .323/.395/.491 with six home runs and 45 RBI in 62 games this season at the Triple-A level. The 23-year-old will make his major league debut at third base Tuesday night against the White Sox and could see semi-regular starts at the hot corner for Anaheim until David Freese returns in a couple weeks from his fractured right index finger.

Gillaspie, 28, hit just .203/.250/.344 in 68 plate appearances with Anaheim. He opened the 2015 regular season as the White Sox starting third baseman but is now without a 40-man roster spot.
