What will be Collin Cowgill’s role with the Mets?

After acquiring Collin Cowgill from the Athletics this morning many Mets fans are wondering what role will Cowgill have with the Mets? Obviously the Mets lack of outfielders is the biggest weakness on the club right now. I expect the Mets to bring in another full time outfielder probably in right field. That would put Cowgill in center to platoon with Kirk Nieuwenhuis and play against lefties and as a defensive replacement in left field for Lucas Duda.

Cowgill has hit .298 in his short career against lefties and can be a very good weapon for Terry Collins if used in a part time role.
