Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan (rib cage) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, July 3. In a corresponding move, 3B Jeimer Candelario was promoted from Class AAA Iowa.
Fantasy Tip: Coghlan is best viewed as a desperation stash in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. He was playing sparingly and had an underwhelming .194/.356/.306 slash line through 19 games with Chicago. Candelario is unlikely to receive enough at-bats to make a fantasy dent, but he's a player to watch in the deepest yearly formats and keeper/dynasty setups. Through 25 games with Iowa, Candelario posted a .333/.452/.600 slash line with 12 extra-base hits.

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan (ribs) has been nursing a sore side for a few days, and manager Joe Maddon said Saturday, July 2, that the 15-day disabled list is a possibility.
Fantasy Tip: Coghlan should be reserved in all deeper NL-only fantasy formats. If Coghlan is sidelined then Javier Baez would likely see added playing time and more fantasy appeal.

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan (ribs) exited with rib soreness against the New York Mets Saturday, July 2.
Fantasy Tip: Coghlan didn't have much fantasy value anyway, but his injury could open up even more at-bats for a much more attractive option, Javier Baez.

Chicago Cubs 2B Javier Baez and OF Albert Almora are out of the lineup Saturday, July 2, with C Willson Contreras in left field and hitting fifth, and OF Chris Coghlan is hitting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Contreras has a .318-3-10 line on the season in what was supposed to be a watch-and-learn scenario. Now he's hitting in the heart of the order, and he's a good catcher to use against Bartolo Colon. Cogs has struggled all year and isn't worthy of the flyer.

Chicago Cubs OF Albert Almora is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 27. OF Chris Coghlan makes the start in right field and is hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily. OF Jason Heyward moves over to center field and is batting second.
Fantasy Tip: Coghlan has only six hits in 28 at-bats (.214) since being traded back to the Cubs earlier this month and is a low-end outfield pick in daily formats. Heyward has picked it up a bit in June with three home runs and 23 hits in 89 at-bats, and he's not a bad DFS selection while facing Straily tonight.

Chicago Cubs INF Javier Baez is not in the starting lineup against the Miami Marlins Sunday, June 26. OF Chris Coghlan is starting in right field and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: Fernandez checks out as one of the most daunting matchups in baseball, so it isn't surprising to see Baez on the pine given his free-swinging approach and lack of handedness advantage. Baez has proved to be a valuable deep league option because of his modest five-category return and eligibility at multiple positions. Coghlan should likely be avoided in all fantasy formats Sunday, but since joining Chicago, he has a .412 on-base percentage through 14 games. Coghlan is worth owning in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.
