BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Coghlan burst onto the scene by hitting .321 in his first tour of the majors and taking home the 2009 National League Rookie of the Year award. Skeptics who pointed to his unsustainable BABIP have since been vindicated. It is now safe to call Coghlan’s decorated debut a fluke. He was demoted to Triple-A in early June, despite the fact a spate of Marlins' injuries should have created ample opportunities for him to contribute. Now battling for a spot on the organizational depth chart, Coghlan needs to separate himself in spring training or he may struggle to resurface as more than a fifth outfielder.
2012 Injuries, mostly to his left knee, have cost Coghlan more than 120 games over the last two years, but it's what he's shown when healthy that causes concern. Since winning the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2009, Coghlan has hit a combined .252/.317/.376 in 156 games. The time he's lost has allowed Emilio Bonifacio and Bryan Petersen to emerge, and they and Scott Cousins will challenge Coghlan for playing time in 2012.
2011 The 2009 Rookie of the Year took a major tumble at the plate before tearing the meniscus in his left knee and missing the last 10 weeks of the year, but the knee was just the coup de grâce in a season-long litany of hurts. While a torrid June (.477/.463/.642, with 20 extra-base hits) provided a quick reminder of his capabilities, time may not heal all that ails him. Beyond the possibility that the knee could hamper his stated desire to bring his minor-league aggression on the basepaths to his big-league game, the other major red flag is the big spike in his strikeout rate, because if Coghlan keeps whiffing 20 percent of the time, what does that leave? Not a lot of power and a walk rate below 10 percent, and it's hard to expect him to repeat his rookie .368 batting average on balls in play on demand. In the wake of the Maybin trade, they are now pondering a camp tryout in center; set your expectations low, and if Matt Dominguez doesn't claim third base for himself, don't be surprised if that shift reappears on the options menu for Coghlan.
2010 The Marlins have experienced enough variation in the performances of their primary leadoff men—from Todd Dunwoody’s .292 OBP of 1998 to Luis Castillo’s .418 of 2000—that they should have known better than to mess around with Bonifacio, but NL Rookie of the Year Coghlan rescued them from that error in judgment. A supplemental first-round pick out of Ole Miss in 2006, Coghlan’s combined performance between Triple-A and the majors suggests either a great leap forward that scouts didn’t anticipate or an early, not-to-be-repeated peak—more likely the latter, because his .365 BABIP is likely to drop faster than Lehman Brothers. The other bad news is that Coghlan was very much the transplanted infielder in left field. Should he, as expected, return to second base or third, Coghlan’s bat should nevertheless play very nicely, leaving the Fish a heck of a lot better off than they were when they put their faith in Bonifacio.
2009 A former first-rounder out of the University of Mississippi, Coghlan can work the count and knows what to do on base once he gets there. The knock against him is that none of his skills stand out and he doesn't have much projection left, but he has potential at second or as a frequently used utility infielder who can get on base.
2008 A third baseman in college, Coghlan has been learning second base for a year, and the early returns have been good enough to keep him at the keystone, the position he played in last year's Futures Game after raking in the Sally League. He was less successful after a promotion to the High-A Florida State League, but an injury may be to blame for that. With his solid on-base skills and improving defense at second, Coghlan is sort of the anti-Uggla.

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)10 tm NL only, Drop Coghlan for Belt? Is Ike Davis still rosterable in NL only? Thanks
(sdoron from Jerusalem, Israel)
Tough question, lots of complicating factors. Brandon Belt is better, but is still probably 3 weeks away from getting back to the bigs, and at that, the Giants weren't committing to him as an everyday player before the injury. Things are crazy in Florida right now, and a lot of Chris Coghlan's value is going to come down to McKeon's opinion of him. He's been bad so far, but he just announced that he was playing through injury, which might make them more willing to give him another chance. There's no right call here unless you can see into the minds of these managers, but I might go with Belt, if forced to pick.

Yes. Davis is absolutely still rosterable in NL-only. (Derek Carty)
2010-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where is Chris Coghlan going to play most of his games in the Majors? Think he moves to the infield when the Marlins inevitably fall out of the race and deal Dan Uggla?
(Trey from San Diego)
While an Uggla deal which restores him to second base is an intriguing and legitimate possibility, nobody loved Coghlan's D at the keystone before, and it's only going to get tougher for him to move back the more time passes. I suspect his long-term future is in the outfield, and hope for his sake he can maintain last year's breakout level. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Although not nearly the defeneder Emilio Bonifacio is at 2B, wouldn't the Marlins be best suited putting Chris Coghlan at 2B should they deal Dan Uggla based on the value of his bat in the infield?
(Goose from Chicago)
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Garrett Jones would easily have 30+ home runs if he had come up with McCutchen. Are either viable ROY candidates in the NL?
(WilliamWallace from Pittsburgh)
Jones leads NL rookies in VORP, curiously enough, with McCutchen right behind him. As good as Jones has been, I view him as a journeyman having an unsustainable season, and I wonder if the Writers will see it the same way. I think Chris Coghlan also has to be in the conversation, as well as J.A. Happ and Tommy Hanson. (Steven Goldman)
2009-08-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)With the sudden emergence of Chris Coghlan, do you think Dan Uggla's days in Miami are numbered?
(Gray from Chicago)
In that Uggla is older and more expensive than Coghlan, sure, that’s possible. But money aside, let’s not let one smokin’ hot month from Coghlan confuse which of them is the better player. (Ken Funck)
2009-08-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi John. Do you hear anything from scouts about Chris Coghlan? Is his future at 2nd base or in the outfield?
(jtrichey from Indianapolis)
He's certainly a better defensive second baseman than Dan Uggla, but, long-term, most scouts like him better in the outfield. (John Perrotto)
2008-09-09 13:30:00 (link to chat)If you were the Marlins, would you field offers for Dan Uggla this offseason and give the 2B job to Chris Coghlan?
(Tom from Miami)
I would do half of that. Uggla has peaked, and trading him now would be a good idea. That said, the Marlins are in position to trade offense for defense a bit, and maybe instead of Coghlan, they could look for someone with more glove than bat. (Joe Sheehan)
