RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Chris Coghlan.

2017

The Cubs parted ways with Coghlan in February, shipping him to the A's in exchange for Aaron Brooks, but a two-month slump in Oakland ultimately led him back to the Cubs as part of an in-season trade in June. Coghlan returned to form after the deal back to Chicago with a .252/.391/.388 line in a part-time role over 48 games. While the combined performance is that of a below replacement-level player, Coghlan's resurgence with the Cubs closely resembled his output with the club in 2014 and 2015. As a result, he could get an opportunity as a platoon player, or at least steady contributor off the bench with the Phillies after signing an NRI deal with them. There is little reason to think he will see enough playing time to approach his career-high 16 homers from 2015, however, as he can't hit lefties (.427 OPS against southpaws last season), and his defense has graded out as below average in seven of his eight big league seasons.

2016

Coghlan was once again a stabling influence in the Cubs' outfield, seeing 440 at-bats (his highest total since his rookie season in 2009) and reaching career highs in home runs (16), stolen bases (11), and walks (58). Though he didn't play a game in center field last year, he became one of the more versatile players on the team, playing at least three games at five different positions. Alas, he still only qualifies at outfield in most leagues, but a trade to the A's will allow him to once again be deployed fairly regularly. Expect the 30-year-old Coghlan to be deployed primarily in left field against righties, although he could also get some starts in the infield if there is an injury or someone is underperforming.

2015

At 29, Coghlan was one of the old men with the Cubs in 2014. He didn't make the team out of spring training, but he was one of the better hitters on the team after he was promoted in May, highlighted by his league-leading .376 batting average in July. He'll never hit many home runs or steal a lot of bases, but he'll provide a handful of both without hurting your batting average.

2014

Coghlan was able to battle through injuries and a position switch in 2013 to produce a decent .256/.318/.354 line for the Marlins in 70 games. After competing for at-bats in center field with Justin Ruggiano early on, he got a brief look at third base down the stretch as rookies Christian Yelich and Jake Marisnick began to gobble up the playing time in the outfield. Coghlan doesn't provide much power or speed, but he can offer versatility for a big league bench and he will compete for a roster spot with the Cubs during spring training after signing a minor league deal in January.

2013

Coghlan put up a pathetic .140/.212/.394 line over his first 93 at-bats prior to being relegated to Triple-A in mid June. The 26-year-old held his own at Triple-A, batting .284 with a solid .375 OBP in 317 minor league at-bats and flashing some of the upside he put on display during his 2009 Rookie of the Year campaign. With below-average power and speed, Coghlan's best asset is his solid batting eye (117:222 BB:K) and ability to hit for average, but the batting average has been slipping since that stellar rookie season. In three injury-plagued seasons since 2009, the outfielder has batted just .238 in 720 major league at-bats with a .656 OPS over that time. Perhaps the Marlins will give him another look as part of their latest rebuilding effort, but he'll need to impress to secure his roster spot.

2012

Coghlan's transition to center field last season was a total disaster. He never seemed comfortable defensively and had a miserable season at the plate when he managed to stay healthy. Things were no better for Coghlan at Triple-A, and just two seasons after winning the NL Rookie of the Year award there's now no apparent room for him on the Marlins' major league roster. He may need a trade to get his career back on track, but his sub-.400 slugging percentage each of the last two seasons points to rapidly diminishing upside.

2011

The sophomore jinx hit Coghlan hard. His walk rate dropped, his strikeout rate shot up and then to cap it off he tore his MCL in July while delivering a shaving cream pie to Wes Helms' face following Helms' walk-off hit. On the bright side his BABIP and line-drive rate stayed strong, which points to better offensive days ahead, but a discussed move to center field could open him up to further injury if he proves to be overmatched defensively. The Marlins have holes at second base and third base too, though, spots that would be much better fits for Coghlan's skills. If he gets back on track, and on base with the frequency he did as a rookie, he could score a lot of runs hitting ahead of Hanley Ramirez and Mike Stanton.

2010

After a hot start at Triple-A, Coghlan was called up to the majors and quickly took over the starting left-field and leadoff jobs. His ridiculous hitting at the end of the year (.388 batting average over August and September, and he led the majors in hits in the second half) won him the NL Rookie of the Year award, but it's his solid walk rate and all-around skill set that will keep him at the top of the Marlins' batting order. He could shift to second base (his main position in the minors) if Dan Uggla gets penny-pinched out of town, which would give him some extra multi-position value. His fantasy numbers don't look especially impressive, but there's still some upside here even if his batting average returns to a more sustainable .280 or so, and Coghlan could be the kind of player who gets undervalued by the "smart" crowd who expect him to be overvalued based on his Rookie of the Year status.

2009

Coglan's power took a dip at Double-A in 2008, but his patience and speed still mark him as the Marlins' second baseman of the future. That future will be a lot clearer once Dan Uggla's contract status gets decided; if the Marlins sign Uggla to a long-term deal there'll be no room for Coglan, but a one-year deal through arbitration sends a signal that 2010 could be Coglan's year to step forward.

2008

He showed a very nice blend of gap power, speed and patience in Low-A but struggled after a promotion, and at 22 could hardly be considered young for Low-A. If he takes another step forward in 2008 he could end up being a candidate to replace Miguel Cabrera at third base, but the Marlins have also experimented with him at second so his eventual future position is still up in the air. A lot will depend on whether he can start turning some of his doubles into home runs at higher levels.

2007
