Angels have inked deals with 41 of 55 2010 draft picks

ANAHEIM, CA -- The Angels Monday announced the club has agreed to terms with first-round draft pick (18th overall), infielder Kaleb Cowart out of Cook County High School in Adel, Georgia. Per club policy, no terms of the agreement were released. The announcement was made by Angels’ Director of Scouting Eddie Bane.

Cowart (pronounced Cow-ert), was named the 2010 Gatorade National High School Baseball Player of the Year. The switch-hitting third baseman batted .654 with 11 home runs, 55 runs scored, 59 RBI and 36 stolen bases (in 36 attempts) at Cook County. His batting average ranked second all-time in Georgia state single-season history. The 6’ 3”, 210-pounder had signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Florida State.

“We’re pleased to officially welcome Kaleb to our organization,” said Bane who has spent the past seven seasons as the Angels’ Director of Scouting. “He will add to the talented pieces already in our farm system, and will play a large role in the future success of the Angels.”

Cowart was the first of three 2010 first-round selections for the Angels: #18 from the Mariners (compensation for C. Figgins), #29 from the Red Sox (compensation for J. Lackey) and #30 (regular slotted pick). The Angels were also awarded two supplemental round picks #37, for Lackey, and #40, for Figgins, in the supplemental first round.
