Bad Back Sidelines Coghlan; Mike Lamb To Be Designated for Assignment

Chris Coghlan left Saturday's game with a back strain stemming from a diving catch on Friday. Coghlan won't play Sunday and it's possible he could be out longer. Emilio Bonifacio took over for Coghlan and manager Edwin Rodriguez said Bonifacio would start Sunday and bat leadoff.

 Coghlan said he felt discomfort while taking batting practice before Saturday's game but felt okay to play. Rodriguez detected an awkward swing when Coghlan struck out swinging in the fifth and decided to take him out.

 The Marlins also announced after the game that Mike Lamb, their lefty pinch-hitter off the bench, will be designated for assignment, effective Sunday. He'll be replaced on the roster by outfielder Bryan Petersen, who was with the Marlins earlier in the season and is hitting .259 at Triple A New Orleans.

I starting to feel sorry for Lamb


This organization is a real joke this is the hundredth time they do this to mike lamb for a guy in bryan peterson that isnt going to do any better. i hope Lamb opts to become a free-agent insead of taking his assignment

Bring up Logan Morrison and see what he can do. It's not as if this team is going anywhere.

as long as they play musical players, and hire amateur managers, they will never go anywhere: but if they put 20,000 people in the new stadium for avery game, they'll survive;


the Marlins need some left handed hitting pop in their lineup. I hope Logan Morrison is given a shot should the team fall out of contention.
