Marlins Are Serious About Chris Coghlan - You Should Be Too

Postby AussieDodger » Tue May 12, 2009 12:13 pm

Chris Coghlan will play all over the place, so long as he's hitting, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez.
Coghlan, a blue-chip prospect, has been hot as a pistol in the minors at the plate. He will start at second Friday, to give Dan Uggla a day off, but will then see most of his time in left field, Gonzalez said. Jeremy Hermida would then shift over to right and Cody Ross to center. The big loser appears to be Cameron Maybin, who will see more playing time lost than Hermida or Ross, at least initially. Either way, it looks like the Marlins want Coghlan in the lineup everyday, and if he plays a few different positions and can translate some of his natural hitting ability to the bigs, he'll be a valuable commodity. He is a big league hitter, that's for sure.

To get Coghlan more at bats they sent CAMERON MAYBIN to AAA. For reals. :-L

Coghlan walked more then he struck out in the minors (154/147), and had a 34 steal season last year. His minor league stats are .298/.388/.451.

At the moment Coghlan is the starting LF vs RHP, but with Bonifacio being the expected disaster at the plate, Coghlan could pick up eligibility at 3B as well, ending up with 2B/3B/LF. Both starts so far have him in the 2 spot.

Could be a cheap .280-.300, 15-25 SB player who could turn into your bench swiss army knife player with all those positions. ;-D
