Cubs | Chris Coghlan placed on DL

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 06:51:23 -0700

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.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan might head to DL

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 22:07:47 -0700

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.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan injures ribs

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 19:54:45 -0700

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.

Cubs | Two Cubs idle Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 14:19:27 -0700

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.

Cubs | Albert Almora takes a seat

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 11:25:44 -0700

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.

Cubs | No Javier Baez vs. Fish

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 06:56:41 -0700

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.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo, Miguel Montero back in lineup

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 10:07:28 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo (back) and C Miguel Montero (knee) are back in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Paul Clemens Saturday, June 25. In addition, C/OF Willson Contreras will bat cleanup and play left field, while INF Javier Baez plays second base and bats sixth. OF Chris Coghlan and 2B Ben Zobrist (foot) are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Contreras is 7-for-17 (.412) through the first seven games of his MLB career, with three home runs and eight RBI, and will be making his first appearance in the outfield since being called up. He is a must-start option in DFS this afternoon. Baez is batting .284 with four homers and 14 RBI this month and could see regular time at the keystone position over the next few days if Zobrist is forced to miss multiple games due to a right foot injury.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo remains out vs. Fish

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 12:01:53 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo (back) is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 24. OF Chris Coghlan draws into the lineup in left field and is batting fifth against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Friday.

Fantasy Tip: This is the second consecutive game Rizzo is sitting out, as he and the team are being cautious with his nagging back stiffness. Coghlan has a .407 on-base percentage through 12 games since joining the Cubs, but he's still a low-end fantasy option in deep mixed leagues. Stay tuned for updates on Rizzo's status for the weekend.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan leading off vs. Cards

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:19:29 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B/OF Chris Coghlan is starting in left field and leading off against St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright Tuesday, June 21. INF Javier Baez is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan is 4-for-15 with a .389 on-base percentage and five runs since joining the Cubs, and he is a viable option in cavernous mixed and NL-only setups. He's also a solid option in daily contests Tuesday. Baez should be owned in deep mixed leagues given his solid cross-category contributions and eligibility at multiple positions.

Cardinals | Trevor Rosenthal holds on for 13th save

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:37:56 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals RP Trevor Rosenthal made things interesting yet again on Monday, June 20 - giving up a leadoff double to Chicago Cubs OF Albert Almora Jr., hitting pinch-hitter Chris Coghlan with a pitch and allowing a single to 2B Ben Zobrist - but forced a game-ending infield popup for the final out after C Yadier Molina made a stellar defensive play to retire Almora at third for the second out.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Mike Matheny continues to stand by his man, but Rosenthal isn't making it easy. The 26-year-old closer has only three clean outings this month and, as a result, a 12.00 ERA and 2.67 WHIP in nine June appearances. He also has a HBP each of his last two games as well. A closer change doesn't appear imminent yet based on Matheny's postgame comments, but owners could make a play for Kevin Siegrist if they have room on their roster to do so.
