I've been paying attention to the exploits of Florida Marlins outfielder Scott Cousins since late-2009, when the former third-round pick in 2006 started putting up interesting numbers at Double-A Jacksonville. Knowing how odd it appeared to force former infielder Chris Coghlan into the center-field slot this season -- the jury remains out, frankly -- I mentioned Cousins as a deep-league sleeper. He has a nice combination of power and speed and can handle center field, but now that left fielder Logan Morrison is likely to hit the disabled list and miss up to a month with sprained ligaments in his left foot, Cousins becomes a lot more interesting.
