Chris Coghlan recalled from rehab assignment due to balky left knee

          NEW YORK – A tough season for Chris Coghlan continues to deteriorate.

          The latest setback: Coghlan was recalled from his minor-league rehab assignment to receive further treatment on his injured left knee.

          "The knee stiffened up a bit and we want to back him off and get it completely healthy," said Larry Beinfest, the Marlins’ president of baseball operations.

          Coghlan, who has been on the disabled list since June 17 with inflammation in his left knee, had gone 4 for 19 in five games for Double A Jacksonville before the decision was made to return him to South Florida.

          Coghlan injured the knee last season when he smacked Wes Helms in the face with a shaving cream pie to celebrate a walk-off win. He underwent surgery last August but has struggled to recapture the form that led him to be named the National League Rookie of the Year in 2009.

          He hit just .230 this season – and only .107 against left-handers – in 65 games before he landed on the disabled list. In addition to his knee problems. Coghlan, who was moved from left field to center, was bothered by a sore throwing (right) shoulder throughout spring training and the early part of the season.

Sounds like Cogs is done for the season. He might have a big battle to make the team next spring.

Not a good sign; especially considering how the FO likes to obfuscate injuries.

What the efff does obfuscate mean???

Brother Coghlan will be engaged in constant prayer, even on one good knee,that he still has any resemblence of a decent career left, at the end of his pie-celebration saga....
