Recently, the Cubs signed a former Rookie of the Year to a minor league deal. The question then becomes, will Cubs fans see former Rookie of the Year Chris Coghlan on Chicago Cubs roster, whether it be on opening day or later on in the year? Coghlan’s ROY Campaign Coghlan, who has spent his career in the Marlins’ organization, won the Rookie of the Year award in 2009. Starting at Left Field for the Marlins, he hit .321 in 504 AB’s, while adding 31 doubles and scoring 84 runs. After that year, Coghlan has dealt with numerous injuries, never getting back on track. Since that phenomenal rookie season, he has averaged only 66 games and a .223 average over the past 4 seasons in Miami. While Derrick Rose tore his meniscus doing what he loved, Coghlan tore his meniscus in his Sophomore season in a shaving cream pie celebration. Last season, Coghlan earned playing time and respect among his peers while hitting .322 in May. His numbers decreased while a nagging lower back injury and a trip to the DL. When Coghlan came back from the DL in September, he proceeded to hit .301 for the month to finish up 2013 strong. COGHLAN’S FUTURE This is a great signing for the Cubs, as Coghlan’s upside is tremendous. Obviously, if Coghlan has chronic injuries again, or his production just isn’t there, the Cubs can was their hands of him. Coghlan can get on base often, and at the very least platoon. I expect a strong spring from Chris as long as he stays healthy.
