      Cubs' Chris Coghlan: Avoids arbitration with Cubs

      Coghlan agreed to a $4.8 million deal with the Cubs on Friday, avoiding arbitration, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports. The 30-year-old outfielder set career highs in home runs (16) and steals (11) last season, but it will be hard for him to get close to the 503 plate appearances he saw last year unless the Cubs trade someone like Jorge Soler. Look for him to be the Cubs' fourth outfielder if nothing changes between now and Opening Day.

      Cubs' Chris Coghlan: Not in lineup for Game 3

      Coghlan is not in the lineup to start Game 3 of the NLCS. Coghlan got the start in place of Jorge Soler in Game 2 and the 30-year-old promptly delivered an 0-for-4 performance. He will likely find himself in the game at some point, -- either as a pinch-hitter or defensive replacement -- but he likely won't provide much fantasy value on Tuesday.

      Chris Coghlan snaps out of slump with three hits in Cubs' win Saturday

      Cubs utility man Chris Coghlan went 3 for 4 with a double and run scored in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Brewers. Coghlan's multi-hit performance ends a woeful 2-for-28 skid. The versatile Coghlan has been an asset for the Cubs, making starts at five different positions while belting a career-high 16 home runs. Despite receiving 437 at-bats, Coghlan hasn't started a game against a left-handed pitcher in 2015

      Cubs' Chris Coghlan heads to bench for Game 2 of DH

      Cubs outfielder Chris Coghlan is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Pirates. Lefty J.A. Happ is due up for Pittsburgh in Game 2, so it's no surprise to see Coghlan on the bench. Coghlan has gone 4-for-42 against southpaws this season and is just a .230/.309/.316 career hitter against left-handed pitching.

      Cubs LF Chris Coghlan goes yard twice in Friday win

      He will never be known as "Babe Coghlan" but Cubs left fielder Chris Coghlan has become a bit of a slugger this season. Coghlan blasted two over the wall Friday against the White Sox to give him a career-high 13 home runs on the season. He slammed a three-run blast in the third inning and added a solo shot in the fifth. It was his second two-tater game of 2015. He had never hit more than nine home runs in any previous year.

      Cubs outfielder Chris Coghlan not only slammed a two-run homer Friday against Philadelphia, but it appeared the blast would stand up to be the game-winner. His team blew it, but his single, walk and 10th homer of the year did sweeten his slash line to .257/.349/.435. Coghlan has hit safely in six straight starts.
