Marlins option Coghlan after latest loss

MIAMI — The Marlins optioned outfielder Chris Coghlan to Triple-A New Orleans after suffering a 10-2 loss to the Red Sox on Wednesday night.

Coghlan, who didn’t start on Wednesday, is hitting .140 in 93 at-bats. He had been in an 0-for-16 slump since collecting two hits at Philadelphia on June 3.

The Marlins did not announce who will be joining the team when they open their three-game set at Tampa Bay on Friday.

A possibility is Scott Cousins, who has had a solid season at New Orleans. Cousins is batting .292 in 50 games. A left-handed hitter, Cousins has seven home runs and 32 RBIs.

He had two at-bats for New Orleans on Wednesday. In his last 10 games, Cousins is batting .371.

Bryan Petersen does not appear to be a choice, because he was optioned to Triple-A on June 8. Barring a player going on the disabled list, teams have to wait 10 days to recall a player after he is sent down.

I’m still hoping that Chris will regain that confidence and great swing he had his rookie year– one of the best in the majors. Good luck. Don’t ever give up!
