Nationals_vs_marlins_05e1
Miami Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan has been on the disabled list since June 9 due to a back injury. He underwent an MRI earlier in the week that diagnosed the ailment as a lower back strain, which will sideline Coghlan indefinitely, according to Joe Morgan and Christina De Nicola of MLB.com. Manager Mike Redmond told reporters that Coghlan was initially dealing with pain in his calf as well as his back. At this point, the skipper indicated that it's Coghlan's back that's keeping him out of action. "His pain was in his calf and his leg," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "With the MRI, it's his back. It wasn't his leg. I feel terrible for him, because he was patient," Redmond said. "He didn't get a ton of chances early and made the most of his playing time. He's red hot. He was probably our best offensive player." Redmond's not sure how long Coghlan will be out, as he said he wasn't certain if the outfielder will be sidelined through the All-Star break. The specifics surrounding the injury remains unclear. Redmond indicated that additional testing could be required to determine the extent of the ailment. It's awful timing for Coghlan, who was batting .343 with four runs scored and nine RBI since earning a spot in the Marlins' everyday lineup on May 18. On the season the 27-year-old has hit .277/.326/.415 with nine doubles, three triples and one home run over 141 plate appearances. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
