|Cubs expected to keep Justin Ruggiano, Chris Coghlan |

|Don't get too attached to Chris Coghlan |

(7/17/14) Chris Coghlan scored 53 Head-to-Head points the week before All-Star break, the second-most any hitter has scored in week this season. That's insane.
Leaving Coghlan on the wavier wire, though, isn't.
I'm willing to venture it's a hot streak and nothing more. He's always been a streaky hitter, but over the years, he's shown that with a normal BABIP (and not the .365 mark he put together as a rookie in 2009), he's no better than a .265 hitter. He's up to .275 now after beginning July at .206, so this streak has served to put his overall numbers back on their proper course.
The one curious part about it is the power he's shown during it. He hit six doubles and three homers in that one week, elevating his slugging percentage from .356 to .477. He now has five home runs on the year, which is the most he's had since hitting nine as a rookie, which pretty much says it all. Power has never been a big part of his game, and most surges happen before age 29.
With Arismendy Alcantara now in the mix and Emilio Bonifacio due back from the DL soon, Coghlan could be out of a job when he shows the first signs of slowing down. In mixed leagues, you can make better use of a bench slot.

(7/14/14) Cubs outfielder Chris Coghlan went 2 for 4 with a walk, a home run and two RBI in Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Braves.
Coghlan has been on quite a hot streak since the beginning of July, hitting .435/.509/.804 with three home runs, 12 RBI and two stolen bases in 46 at-bats. He closed the final week before the break with three straight two-hit games and four straight games with a walk and an extra-base hit. After entering July with a .611 OPS, Coghlan now owns a .275/.355/.477 line with five home runs, 16 RBI and four stolen bases in 149 at-bats.

Coghlan raised his average more than 20 points with Monday's effort, and is now hitting .252/.321/.390 in 123 at-bats.
