Insight: Coghlan had a great May, batting .322 for the month and in June he has continued his hot hitting. He has a nice one-day start value for fantasy owners.

Description: Miami center fielder Chris Coghlan went 4-for-5 Sunday against New York.
Insight: Coghlan is hitting .447 over his last nine games. He's driven in eight runs over that span. Prior to the streak, Coghlan had only produced one RBI all season.

Description: Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan is 13-for-33 (.394) during his current eight-game hitting streak.
Insight: Coghlan went 3-for-4 with two RBI Saturday against the Mets. The outfielder hasn't been a useful fantasy player since 2009, when he won the National League Rookie of the Year award by hitting .321 in 504 at-bats. We need to see more before we pick him up in fantasy leagues.
6/2/2012 10:00:00 AM
Description: Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan should be in line for another start on Saturday with a good matchup against Phillies lefty Cole Hamels. Coghlan is a career .368 hitter versus the Phillies ace with a pair of home runs and a 1.244 OPS.
Insight: Coghlan (.157 for the season) was having trouble finding at-bats until injuries opened up a spot. He's played well over the past week batting .313 (5-for-16).

Description: Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan has an excellent history against Cole Hamels, going 7-for-17 with two home runs and a 1.382 OPS.
Insight: The problem is finding a place for Coghlan in the Marlins lineup. He's only gotten five at-bats in the first four games. If he's in the lineup on Monday, he'll be a viable fantasy option.

Description: Coghlan hit a pair of long balls against LA on Monday and raised his batting average to .301 on the season.

3/18/2011 1:01:00 AM
Description: Coghlan missed Thursday's game because of right-shoulder soreness, and he reportedly might not be ready for opening day.
Insight: Coghlan brings little more than mild steal value, and it doesn't appear as though this should linger too long. If you're fretting over Coghlan's situation, you need to add another hobby. (

Insight: The injured throwing shoulder is on his throwing arm and since he is in the NL he will need to be able to throw the ball in hard before he can play. Expect him to start the year on the DL for now.

Description: Chris Coghlan is pretty much set as the Marlins' leadoff hitter. SOURCE: MLBLOGS
Insight: He's not hitting at the top of a great lineup but he still should threaten 90 runs scored if he can stay healthy all season. He is an option in deeper mixed leagues.

Description: The Marlins will move Chris Coghlan to center field for 2011. SOURCE: Palm Beach Post
Insight: Coghlan is recovering from knee surgery and will now move to a more demanding outfield position; as such, he could be a player to drop down a round or two in your pre-season rankings.
