Miami Marlins OF Chris Coghlan (calf) is beginning his rehab assignment with Single-A Jupiter Wednesday, Aug. 14, and he'll play five innings at third base. Coghlan hasn't played third regularly since 2009 in the minors. "I like what he does offensively. I like what he brought to the team before he got hurt, so we'll see. Hopefully he'll stay healthy and we'll get him up here and see what he can do," manager Mike Redmond said. The team is hoping to have Coghlan around Sept. 1.
Fantasy Tip: Placido Polanco is neither the solution nor the future at the hot corner in Miami. Perhaps Coghlan can convince the team to keep him there in spring training next season. He won't have much time to contribute there when he returns, but keep him in mind for third base eligibility next season.

The Miami Marlins are receiving multiple inquiries about OF Justin Ruggiano, and while they aren't actively shopping him, they could decide to trade him this summer. The San Francisco Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates are looking for outfield help. The New York Yankees and Texas Rangers may also be interested. The Marlins aren't motivated to move Ruggiano at the moment, though. OF Christian Yelich (abdominal) just started playing in rehab games last week and OF Jake Marisnick may benefit from more time in the minors. OF Chris Coghlan (calf) has been on the disabled list since June 9 with a nerve issue in his right calf.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact that several of Miami's center field options are banged up, don't count the Fish out in trading Ruggiano if they get what they like in return. Marisnick is the most likley option to come up and start in center field if Ruggiano is dealt. Keep an eye on both he and Yelich in NL-only leagues.

Miami Marlins OF Chris Coghlan (back) will be examined Sunday, June 16, by a back specialist. Coghlan, who was recently placed on the disabled list, will probably have to miss more than the allotted 15 days because an MRI revealed an unspecified back injury.

The Miami Marlins have activated 1B Logan Morrison (knee) from the 15-day disabled list. In a corresponding move, OF Chris Coghlan (calf) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of nerve irritation in his right calf.

Miami Marlins manager Mike Redmond said OF Chris Coghlan could play some third base and OF Marcell Ozuna could shift to center field when OF Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) returns from the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Looks as though the Marlins will get creative to keep two of their hottest bats in the lineup, Coghlan and Ozuna, when Stanton comes back. Coghlan and Ozuna might be available in your deep mixed league. While their swinging well and seeing playing time, it's not a bad idea to give them a run.
