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.

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.

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.

Chris Coghlan came off the bench to drive in three runs Monday against the Brewers.

Coghlan pinch-hit for Kyle Hendricks in the top of the seventh inning and delivered an RBI single to put the Cubs in front. He then cashed in two more runs with another single in the eighth. It was a rare good day for Coghlan, who has struggled through injuries this season while batting .170/.265/.291 with five homers and 23 RBI over 83 games.

Cubs activated 2B/OF Chris Coghlan from the 15-day disabled list.

He's starting in left field for the Cubbies on Thursday. Coghlan missed the last couple weeks of action with a rib contusion.

Chris Coghlan (rib) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Thursday.

He drew the start in left field on Thursday. Coghlan has been out since mid-August with a right rib contusion. There's a good chance he'll return from the disabled list as soon as he's eligible on September 1.

Cubs placed OF Chris Coghlan on the 15-day disabled list with a right rib contusion.

Coghlan suffered the injury in a collision during the first game against the Brewers in Tuesday's doubleheader. There is no current timetable for his return. In 78 games, the veteran outfielder was hitting just .165/.261/.288, so this isn't exactly a killer blow to the Cubs beyond mere depth.

Chris Coghlan went 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and a run scored in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Brewers.

Coghlan had a bit of a scare when he collided with shortstop Addison Russell while going after a pop-fly, but he remained in the game before hitting the sacrifice fly against Damien Magnifico in the eighth inning. We really just wanted to find a way to fit Damien Magnifico into this recap, so here it is. Coghlan is batting just .165/.261/.288 in 78 games this season, but he has at least been a little better since returning to the Cubs.

Cubs activated INF/OF Chris Coghlan from the 15-day disabled list.

Coghlan has been out nearly all month with a right rib cage injury. He's in left field and batting leadoff Friday.
Fri, Jul 29, 2016 11:27:00 AM

Cubs placed INF/OF Chris Coghlan on the 15-day disabled list with a right rib cage injury.

It's an ailment he suffered a few days ago and he hasn't been able to recover as hoped. How long Coghlan will be sidelined isn't known at this point.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon acknowledged that Chris Coghlan (side) could be headed to the disabled list.

Coghlan injured his side a few days ago and couldn't make it through Saturday's game against the Mets. With Tommy La Stella ready to return from a hamstring injury, it might make sense to give Coghlan a couple weeks to heal up. The 31-year-old has hit just .194 since joining the Cubs last month.
Sun, Jul 3, 2016 12:05:00 AM

Chris Coghlan left Saturday's game against the Mets with rib cage soreness.

He flied out in his only at-bat before exiting in the fourth inning. Javier Baez pinch-hit for Coghlan and stayed in the game at second base with Ben Zobrist shifting from second to right field. Coghlan is hitting just .155 this year and could lose his roster spot to Tommy La Stella when he's activated from the disabled list.
