Latest Update Coghlan homered on his way to another multi-hit game Sun Jul, 13, 11:55 PM
A natural hitter with instincts and vision, he can rack up hits consistently, is disciplined at the dish and also has decent pop. Possesses enough speed for stolen bases and enough athleticism to play almost anywhere.
Flaws: : Needs to become a more consistent hitter. Is also honing the finer points of the game, especially as a defender and base-runner. Doesn't have big home-run power, so he isn't likely to become a great run producer.
Coghlan is having an incredible July which has seen him hit .435 with 14 runs scored, three home runs, 10 RBI and two stolen bases. On the season he is now hitting .275 with 24 runs, five home runs and 16 RBI.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Coghlan is putting together another hit streak, though just at three right now, and has back-to-back multi-hit games here at the start. He's swinging a real hot bat right now, but the question is all about playing time for him. If he can continue, then manager Rick Renteria is going to keep him in the lineup, but if he starts to struggle, the team has a number of guys who can find their way into the lineup. If you own him, he makes for a good sell-high, but if you're having trouble finding a taker, you may as well ride him while he's hot.Analyst: Howard Bender
Coghlan is hitting like someone told him he could win the NL Rookie of the Year award again since it's been so long since he's actually been a solid contributor to the fantasy world. He's only batting .261 right now but 15 of his 37 hits have gone for extra bases, including four home runs, giving him a .177 ISO over 146 at-bats. Tough to say how long he keeps this pace up or even how long he continues to see this kind of playing time, but you may as well ride the wave until it breaks.Analyst: Howard Bender
Coghlan extended his hitting streak to nine games after homering in each game of Tuesday's doubleheader and pushed his overall slash line to .262/.336/.438 for the year. While he's been playing more often lately, Coghlan is still just a platooning outfielder for the Cubs and will continue to be mixed into the lineup depending on match-ups. It was a nice day to have him active, but despite his Rookie of the Year credentials, this is not the norm and his value is really limited to just NL-only play. Analyst: Howard Bender
