Cubs | Chris Coghlan out of lineup Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:13:05 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, June 30, against the New York Mets. OF Matt Szczur is batting in Coghlan's place.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) looks to be getting a night off following several games in a row in the outfield. Coghlan's usual platoon partner, Chris Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap), is in right on Tuesday and is worth the pickup with a .340 road average and a .353 mark against lefties. Szczur ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) isn't hitting well but he has a 1-for-3 mark against Mets SP Jon Niese, so he might be a wild card here.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan hitting cleanup Thursday

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 10:26:30 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is starting in left field and hitting cleanup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Carlos Frias Thursday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) hasn't turned heads with his play this year, but a start in the cleanup spot against a mediocre pitcher should have your attention on FantasyScore. All eight of Coghlan's long balls this year have come off righties. He's not a bad click as an under-the-radar sleeper play.

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 16:05:07 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is starting in left field and leading off Tuesday, June 23, against the Los Angeles Dodgers and RHP Zack Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting .258 off right-handed pitching, including eight home runs already this season, but he's a low-ceiling GPP option as he goes up against Greinke.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia batting fifth

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 15:13:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia will start in left field and bat fifth in the lineup Tuesday, June 9, against the Detroit Tigers. OF Chris Coghlan comes out of the lineup, while OF Junior Lake will drop down to the seventh spot in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has nine hits in 19 plate appearances against righties this season, as he goes up against RHP Anibal Sanchez. Just one of Denorfia's nine hits have been of the extra-base variety, but Denorfia is hitting high enough in the order to be considered a cheap flier.

Cubs | Kris Bryant playing LF

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 13:17:24 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant is starting in left field and hitting second in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand Tuesday, June 2. SS Jonathan Herrera receives the start at third base and is hitting ninth. OF Chris Coghlan is out of the lineup against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is a very strong FantasyScore option against the soft-tossing lefty Hand, even though the rookie is hitting .227 (5-for-22) with one home run against southpaws this year. Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be ignored.

Cubs | Junior Lake starting Friday

Fri, 29 May 2015 09:38:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is starting in left field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Friday, May 29. OF Chris Coghlan will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has some nice pop at the bottom of Chicago's lineup, but he's hit just .228 (93-for-408) in his short major league career against right-handers, and Volquez has been pretty solid with his new team this year. Lake is nothing more than a risky dice roll on FantasyScore tonight.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan leading off

Wed, 27 May 2015 13:25:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is batting leadoff and playing left field against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has picked up his play of late, and is riding a respectable 7-for-23 stretch with four runs, three home runs, four RBI and a .304/.385/.739 slash line. While typically setting the table for a potent lineup is a huge fantasy boost, facing Max Scherzer mitigates it Wednesday. Coghlan should be viewed as a low-price flier with upside for FantasyScore contests Wednesday. His value would skyrocket, especially in the run department, if he does stick in the leadoff spot, though.

Fri, 15 May 2015 08:32:01 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is out of the lineup Friday, May 15, against a left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Szczur ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is in there, but he shouldn't be in your FantasyScore lineups.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan leads off

Thu, 07 May 2015 08:47:19 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is leading off Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Cogs ($2,200, 4.4% of your cap) is 5-for-8 (.625) lifetime against Thursday's starter John Lackey. He's a good low-end outfield option on FantasyScore today.
