Marlins | Chris Coghlan seeing more PT

Miami Marlins OF Chris Coghlan has started every game since May 18 and is batting .400 (22-for-55) with four doubles, a home run and eight RBIs in those 15 games. He's also sporting a nine-game hitting streak with a .297 batting average during that time. Coghlan hit only .180 in 20 games in April but is hitting .322 in 26 games in May. Former OF Preston Wilson said Coghlan has changed up his hitting mechanics, and Coghlan is now making contact earlier in his swing. Manager Mike Redmond plans to keep Coghlan in the No. 5 spot in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan's performance has really impressed Redmond, and the former Rookie of the Year has made the most of his opportunities. This has earned Coghlan more playing time, at least until the club is ready to call up either Christian Yelich or Jake Marisnick. That might be a ways off, though, and Coghlan can help owners out in deep mixed leagues in the meantime.
