The Miami Marlins have cleared outfielder Chris Coghlan to resume baseball-related activities, according to Joe Morgan of MLB.com. While this is a step in the right direction, there still isn’t a timetable for Coghlan’s return, as manager Mike Redmond told reporters that the Marlins are prepared to take things slow with the former Rookie of the Year. "Especially with his back, we've got to make sure we properly build him up," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "[We will] take our time and see how his back responds, see how he feels and progress accordingly." Since begin cleared to resume baseball activities, Coghlan has done some running on an anti-gravity treadmill. He’s been on the disabled list since June 9 due to nerve irritation in his right calf. Soon after being placed on the DL it was determined that Coghlan was also dealing with a lower back strain. While Coghlan was told that his back ailment wouldn’t require surgery, he had been resting until he resumed running last week. He’s hoping to return and pick up where he left off prior to his injury, as the 28-year-old was more productive than he’s been in some time at the start of the season. Over 141 plate appearances, Coghlan hit .277/.326/.415 with nine doubles, three triples and one home run. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
