Wise in center vs. Mets

JUPITER, Fla. — Chris Coghlan has been playing center field in Minor League games, but the Marlins are not quite ready to put him in Grapefruit League action.

So Dewayne Wise, who is looking to make the club as a non-roster invitee, is getting the start in center field.

The Marlins may be leaning towards keeping Coghlan out of Grapefruit League games, because it could impact a retroactive date should the team place him on the disabled list to start the season.

Players can appear in Minor League games, but if they are in either a Grapefruit or Cactus league game after March 22, they are not eligible to be placed on the season retroactive. So should Coghlan, or any other Marlin, go on the DL retroactive to March 22, they would be eligible to play on April 7, or after the first six days of the season.

Wise has enjoyed a solid spring. Greg Dobbs, who is a frontrunner to make the team as a left-handed bat off the bench, is getting the start on Thursday at third base.
