Coghlan encouraged, eyes second-half return

MIAMI -- Injured Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan is hopeful for a return this season after resuming baseball activities on Friday.

Coghlan ran on an anti-gravity treadmill on Friday. A return would likely come later in the second half, considering how much time Coghlan has missed. The 28-year-old has dealt with some uncertainty regarding his injury. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right calf nerve irritation on June 9, but an MRI exam on June 10 revealed the issue was actually in his back.

However, quicker progress than expected has encouraged Coghlan.

"I feel way better," Coghlan said. "I would think way better. I've had a lot more time to process things. Things have gone better than expected than what I was originally diagnosed with. I'm hopeful for a return."
