Marlins | Chris Coghlan to work at 3B

Miami Marlins OF Chris Coghlan (calf) is beginning his rehab assignment with Single-A Jupiter Wednesday, Aug. 14, and he'll play five innings at third base. Coghlan hasn't played third regularly since 2009 in the minors. "I like what he does offensively. I like what he brought to the team before he got hurt, so we'll see. Hopefully he'll stay healthy and we'll get him up here and see what he can do," manager Mike Redmond said. The team is hoping to have Coghlan around Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Placido Polanco is neither the solution nor the future at the hot corner in Miami. Perhaps Coghlan can convince the team to keep him there in spring training next season. He won't have much time to contribute there when he returns, but keep him in mind for third base eligibility next season.
