Marlins | CF job up for grabs
Thu, 07 Mar 2013 15:39:43 -0800

The Miami Marlins' center field job is wide open, with OFs Justin Ruggiano (back) and Chris Coghlan competing for the spot. Ruggiano is hoping to make his spring debut Saturday, March 9, after being bothered by a tight lower back. Coghlan is 6-for-20 (.300) with a double and two RBIs in his seven spring games. "We're going to run him out in center. We haven't had anybody stand out yet, so there's still an opportunity for somebody to take that job. Right now, he's swinging the bat and doing everything he can possibly do," manager Mike Redmond said of Coghlan. OFs Gorkys Hernandez, Bryan Petersen and Kevin Mattison are secondary options. Hernandez is out of minor league options, however, and Coghlan has one option left. OFs Jake Marisnick and Christian Yelich will open with Double-A Jacksonville.
