Cogswell has been a three-year contributor for one of the best programs in the country. A shortstop his sophomore year and to begin his junior year, he moved to second base early in the season and profiles as a utility player. A below-average to fringe-average runner, Cogswell has an average arm and is a surehanded defender with average range that plays better at second base. The lefthanded hitter has a contact-oriented bat with on-base ability. He has a quick, line-drive stroke, uses all fields and rarely swings and misses. His bat control allows him to play the short game or slash. He projects to hit for bottom-of-the-scale power. The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder's marginal tools play up because of his aptitude for the game.
