Blue Jays placed INF/OF Chris Coghlan on the 10-day disabled list with a left wrist contusion.
Steve Pearce was activated off the DL in a corresponding 25-man roster move. There is no timetable for Coghlan, though this doesn't sound like a serious injury. He has batted just .200/.299/.267 in 33 games this season for Toronto. Jun 16 - 3:46 PM

Chris Coghlan (back) started Wednesday's game against the Reds but was pinch-hit for in the seventh inning.

Coghlan continues to battle lower back spasms. He finished 0-for-1 with a walk and a strikeout on Wednesday and is hitting just .221/.316/.294 with one home run and five RBI in 32 total games this year.
Jun 1 - 8:50 AM

Chris Coghlan (back) remains out of the Blue Jays' lineup on Tuesday night.

But he told reporters that he's feeling better and it's likely that he will be available off the bench versus the visiting Reds. Coghlan was a late scratch Monday due to lower back spasms.
May 30 - 4:44 PM

Chris Coghlan was scratched from Monday's lineup due to lower back spasms.

Consider him day-to-day. Ezequiel Carrera took Coghlan's spot in left field.
May 29 - 7:45 PM

Chris Coghlan went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in Thursday's win over the Braves.

Coghlan hadn't had a hit since May 2, a span of 16 at-bats, when he doubled off Braves starter Julio Teheran in the first inning. He was getting the start at second base in place of Devon Travis. The veteran utility man has mostly played third base for the Jays this year in Josh Donaldson's absence, but with Donaldson slowly but surely approaching a return Coghlan will be relegated to a bench role once again. He's hitting just .200/.286/.291 on the year.
May 18 - 11:38 PM

Chris Coghlan is making his Blue Jays debut on Saturday, starting at third base and batting seventh against the Orioles.

Coghlan is up to provide versatility while Josh Donaldson is on the disabled list and should draw quite a few starts against right-handed pitching. He's worth a flier in AL-only formats until Donaldson returns.
Apr 15 - 10:15 AM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of second baseman-outfielder Chris Coghlan from Triple-A Buffalo.

Coghlan was hitting .217/.357/.304 in seven games for Buffalo. The Jays have yet to get anything from their left fielders, so Coghlan likely will see some starts at the position against righties, giving him some AL-only value. Steve Pearce's value could take a hit.
Apr 14 - 5:39 PM

Blue Jays signed OF Chris Coghlan to a minor league contract.

Coghlan had been expected to make the Phillies' Opening Day roster but wound up being one of their final cuts instead. He'll open the season as depth at Triple-A Buffalo for the Jays.
Apr 1 - 12:23 PM

Phillies released OF Chris Coghlan.

Coghlan appeared to have a leg up for a bench spot, so this move comes as a surprise. With Coghlan out of the picture, the final two bench spots figure to come down to Jesmuel Valentin, Daniel Nava, and Brock Stassi.
Mar 28 - 11:55 AM

Chris Coghlan went 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts in Wednesday's Grapefruit League date with the Yankees.

With Yankees starter Michael Pineda hurling five perfect inning, Coghlan was not alone in his Wednesday struggles. The veteran bat signed with the Phillies at the beginning of February. He can play both on the infield and outfield and (assuming he can crack the Opening Day roster) figures to bring an experienced bench presence to his new team.
Mar 15 - 9:04 PM

Phillies signed OF/INF Chris Coghlan to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Coghlan got off to a miserable start with the Athletics last season before finishing strong (.779 OPS in 128 plate appearances) after making his return to the Cubs. The 31-year-old should have a decent chance to make the Opening Day roster as depth between the outfield and infield.
Feb 2 - 6:55 PM

Chris Coghlan (ankle) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his return to the Cubs starting lineup on Friday.

Coghlan sustained a mild left ankle sprain on Wednesday against the Pirates. The issue appears to have been minor though and shouldn't limit him heading into the postseason.

Chris Coghlan left Wednesday's game against the Pirates due to a mild left ankle sprain.

Coghlan injured himself when he ran into the outfield wall while tracking a fly ball in the fifth inning. He was subsequently replaced in left field by Albert Almora, but looks like he has avoided major injury. Consider Coghlan day-to-day moving forward.

Chris Coghlan was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Pirates due to an apparent left leg injury.

Coghlan collided with the outfield wall while chasing down a fly ball in the fifth inning. He walked off under his own power while Albert Almora came on to replace him in left field. The Cubs should provide a further update on Coghlan's injury late Wednesday night. It didn't look like anything too serious.
Wed, Sep 28, 2016 08:56:00 PM

Chris Coghlan ripped a bases-clearing triple in Tuesday's win over the Pirates.

Coghlan got the scoring going with his three-bagger in the second inning. He also added a single and a stolen base on the night. Coghlan really struggled for the A's but has regained his form back in Chicago, batting .271/.403/.417.
