Coghlan opens rehab stint at third base in Jupiter

KANSAS CITY -- Chris Coghlan, who has been out since June 8 with right calf nerve irritation, was scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday at Class A Jupiter.

Coghlan, the National League Rookie of the Year in 2009, was scheduled to play five innings at third base as the Marlins explore ways to get him in the lineup when he returns. Manager Mike Redmond said Coghlan could be back around early September if there are no setbacks with his rehab process.

The Marlins are well-stocked in the outfield, and Redmond said third base could be a landing spot for Coghlan if he shows well defensively at that position.

"You've got to figure out a spot for him where he can get some at-bats," Redmond said.
