Profile: Coghlan experienced an unexpected career renaissance with the Cubs in 2014-2015, putting up his best offensive numbers since his rookie year back in 2009. Unfortunately, the wheels fell off last year, as he hit just .188/.290/.318 in 99 games split between the Cubs and Athletics. His 24.3% strikeout rate was his worst ever, more than six percentage points above his career average. Also, after keeping his soft contact rate at a very good 15.2% for the 2014 and 2015 seasons, 19.0% of his contact classified as soft in 2016, which was both higher than league-average, and also the second-worst such rate of his career. It's not crazy to think he could bounce back — Steamer has him projected for a .244/.327/.389 slash, which is reasonable — but it will likely take an injury or two to get him into an everyday role. (Scott Strandberg)

The Quick Opinion: Coghlan is in camp with the Phillies on a minor league deal. He's unlikely to land a starting role in Philadelphia, and given the way he played last year, it's questionable that he'd help anything but a deep NL-only team even if he did play regularly.
