Manager Mike Scioscia said after the game that the team would have an upcoming announcement on recently-acquired outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who will likely join the team Thursday to replace Krauss.
Scioscia also said there would be an announcement on Cowgill, who has been unable to hit since injuring his right hand in batting practice on Sunday.
Cowgill said after the game Wednesday that "I don't know anything yet" about a possible DL stint, and that he had been able to swing a bat "a little bit" before the game.
