Coughlan needs consistent at-bats now

By Andrew Polin

Yes, Chris Coughlan is in a bad slump. But there have been signs of Coughlan’s bat coming alive.

At least twice this week, Coughlan stroked the ball well just to have defending outfielders making diving catches. They are out, of course, but three weeks ago Coughlan looked lost at the plate. Now he doesn’t.

Which is why Manager Fredi Gonzalez’s decision to platoon Coughlan with either Brett Carroll or newbie Bryan Peterson comes at the wrong time.

Coughlan needs consistent at-bats to get through the slump. This day on, day off will just frustrate his ability to get back on track.
