Am I the only one that thinks this guy needs to seriously be a part of the future of this ballclub?
He's a former ROY winner.
And he looks like he really knows what he is doing out there.
Between his speed, his surprising pop, his great range, and his ability to play anywhere in the outfield; I think it should be worth thinking about keeping him as a 4th outfielder.
Let's say the Baez, Russel, Bryant, Almora, Alcantara, and Soler DO pan out (God, that would be awesome).
I genuinely feel like Bryant's future is in the outfield, like Ryan Braun. Same with Alcantara. Either that, or he will be a super-sub and play ANYWHERE there is a spot.
Regardless, you're going to need someone to spell the outfield. An ALL RIGHT-HANDED outfield. So, I vote we keep Coghlan on long-term and have a great 4th outfielder (if not starter...which is what he's been lately) who hits from the other side of the plate.
That is all.
