Don't get too attached to Chris Coghlan


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) 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.


Chris Coghlan ends first half on high note


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2014) 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.


Chris Coghlan scores twice in four-hit game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Cubs outfielder Chris Coghlan put together one of his finest games of the season Monday, though it came in a 9-3 loss to the Reds.

Coghlan extended his hitting streak to seven games, and he left no doubt in going 4 for 5. He scored twice and added a pair of doubles and a stolen base in the loss.

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


Chris Coghlan called up Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2014) The Cubs have called up outfielder Chris Coghlan Saturday.

Coghlan will take the spot of Ryan Sweeney, who hit the disabled list after coming out of Friday's game with an injury. Coghlan was hitting .243 in 70 Triple-A at-bats.


Cubs sign Chris Coghlan to minor-league deal


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) The Cubs announced Wednesday they signed former Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan to a minor-league contract. Coghlan has been invited to spring training as a non-roster player.

Marlins now unlikely to re-sign Chris Coghlan


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) The Marlins are now unlikely to re-sign outfielder Chris Coghlan after making multiple offseason moves involving outfielders, MLB.com reports.

The team traded for Brian Bogusevic, who is the favorite for a backup outfielder slot, and signed Joe Benson to a minor-league deal. Coghlan was non-tendered in December after hitting .256/.318/.354 with one home run and 10 RBI in 195 at-bats with the Marlins last season.


Marlins hope to bring back Chris Coghlan


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/5/2013) Though they non-tendered him Monday, the Marlins have an interest in bringing back outfielder Chris Coghlan in 2014, according to the Miami Herald.

"We're actually trying to re-sign Chris," president of baseball operations Michael Hill said Wednesday.

They wouldn't expect him to be a huge contributor, though.

"His role, had he stayed on the roster, would have been as that extra player capacity," Hill said. "It would be a similar role if he were to re-sign with us. If not, be prepared to go to Triple-A and be ready to help the club when that need arises."


Marlins announce two non-tenders


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) The Marlins non-tendered two of their arbitration-eligible players Monday, as the team opted to allow outfielder Chris Coghlan and reliever Ryan Webb to hit free agency.

Coghlan was arbitration-eligible for the first time as a Super 2 player. He hit just .256 with a .672 OPS in 195 at-bats last season, and has been plagued by injury and struggles with his play in four seasons since winning the Rookie of the Year in 2009.

Webb made $975,000 in a deal to avoid arbitration, and was likely looking for a raise after posting a 2.91 ERA in 80 1/3 innings of work.   


Marlins activate Chris Coghlan from 15-day DL


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2013) The Marlins have activated Chris Coghlan from the 15-day DL, MLB.com reports.

Coghlan, who owns a .277/.326/.415 line in 51 games this year, spent much of his rehab assignment playing third base. He played 30 of his 31 games in the field this year in the outfield, so it will be interesting to see where the Marlins use him down the stretch.


Chris Coghlan expected back on Sept. 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2013) Marlins manager Mike Redmond told the Sun Sentinel he expects Chris Coghlan to rejoin the club when rosters expand Sept. 1. Coghlan will get a chance to play at third base, according to Redmond.

"From what I've heard he's doing fine. I think it's a situation where it's a chance to get a look at him at another position, as we’re always trying to figure out a guy, where we can utilize his skills and ability," Redmond said. "We know he can play the outfield, and he was an infielder. We'll give him a shot at third and see what we've got and hope that it works."

Chris Coghlan finding his swing on rehab stint


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan appeared in his fifth minor-league rehab game Tuesday for Class A Jupiter, as he went hitless in three trips to the plate.

Coghlan, who is recovering from nerve irritation in his right calf, is just 1 for 13 so far in his rehab assignment. He is expected to return from the disabled list in early September. 


Chris Coghlan ready for rehab


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Wednesday with Class-A Jupiter, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Coghlan has been sidelined since June 9 with right calf nerve irritation. He is expected to play five innings at third base.

"We'll start his progression and see how he does," manager Mike Redmond said. "We talked about it as an organization and tried to figure out not only where he would fit, but where he could get the playing time. Obviously with young kids…that's a pretty crowded outfield. We've got to try to figure out a spot for him where we can get him some at-bats and you never know. Maybe third base is the key."

Chris Coghlan could be cleared for rehab soon


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan is set to visit a spine specialist Thursday, and he could be ready to begin a minor-league rehab assignment then, assuming he receives clearance. According to MLB.com, the Marlins will likely establish a date for the beginning of Coghlan's rehab assignment shortly thereafter, as long as he can avoid a setback while spending the week working out at the team's spring training complex in Jupiter.

"I am very excited that I am not going to miss the rest of the season," Coghlan said.

Coghlan has been out since June 9 with right calf nerve irritation that has mostly manifested itself as a back injury. He has been running and taking grounders in recent days, while trying to get back into baseball shape. 


Chris Coghlan heading to Jupiter


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan is not quite ready to begin playing in games, but he will head to the team's spring training complex in Jupiter to continue ramping up his recovery from a nerve issue in his calf. According to MLB.com, Coghlan took grounders Saturday and will be able to increase his participation in baseball activities in Jupiter, which have so far been limited to playing catch and light hitting in the cage.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan took his first swings in the batting cage Friday, as part of his recovery from nerve irritation in his calf.

Despite that, his return could still be a month away, though Coghlan holds out hope for an earlier-than-expected return. 

Chris Coghlan cleared to work out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan has been cleared to resume baseball activities, the Sun Sentinel reports Friday. Coghlan has not played since June 8 due to nerve irritation in his calf, and manager Mike Redmond does not think he is anywhere close to beginning a rehab assignment.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Chris Coghlan to see specialist Monday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan will head to Texas Monday to be re-examined by a spine specialist, as he has still not been cleared to resume baseball activities. Coghlan is dealing with right calf nerve irritation that has kept him on the disabled list since June 9.

"It involves the nerves," Coghlan told the Miami Herald Friday. "I thought I had blown out my calf. I didn't know what the heck it was."

Coghlan has already been seen by Dr. Drew Dossett, and it is not clear how  far he is from being cleared to begin working out. 


Chris Coghlan avoids back surgery


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan will not need surgery for his injured back, the Miami Herald reports. Coghlan was instructed to rest his back after visiting a spine specialist Sunday, and told manager Mike Redmond he is feeling much better.

Chris Coghlan to see back specialist


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan will see a back specialist Sunday, according to the Miami Herald.

Coghlan hasn't played since June 8 and was placed on the 15-day disabled list with back trouble. An MRI revealed a more serious injury, and Coghlan will likely be out much longer than 15 days. Coghlan will see Dr. Drew Dossett, who has treated other athletes who have suffered back issues. 

Coghlan is hitting .277/.326/.415 in 130 at-bats. 


Back injury could keep Chris Coghlan out for a while


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan could be out until after the All-Star break, after being diagnosed Tuesday with a lower back strain. Manager Mike Redmond could not confirm when Coghlan might be able to return, when asked by MLB.com.

"It's hard to say until we really figure out what he's got going," Redmond said. "He might have to go off and do some more tests to exactly figure out what he's got going back there."

Coghlan was initially dealing with pain in his calf and leg, before an MRI revealed the source of the injury to be his lower back. Coghlan's injury comes at a bad time, as he was in the midst of one of his best stretches since his rookie of the year season. Coghlan was hitting .343 with nine RBI since moving into the everyday lineup May 18.

"I feel terrible for him, because he was patient," Redmond said. "He didn't get a ton of chances early and made the most of his playing time. He's red hot. He was probably our best offensive player."

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan's MRI revealed a lower back strain, rather than the calf injury he originally was thought to have suffered. Manager Mike Redmond told the Miami Herald Tuesday that Coghlan will "be out a while" due to the injury. He is already on the disabled list, and the team does not have a timetable for his possible return.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan, who unexpectedly went on the disabled list Sunday with a calf injury, said he will undergo an MRI Monday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2013) The Marlins placed outfielder Chris Coghlan on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a right calf nerve irritation. First baseman Logan Morrison was activated off the disabled list take Coghlan's roster spot.

It's an unfortunate setback for Coghlan, who had been starting regularly since mid-May. He's batting .343 (23 for 67) with one home run, three triples, five doubles and nine RBI in his last 18 games.


Chris Coghlan returns, plays nine innings


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2013) Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan was back in the starting lineup Saturday, after missing the team's previous game with a sore calf.
