Cubs sign Chris Coghlan to minor league deal with ST invite

Coghlan won the Rookie of the Year voting in 2009, when he slashed .321/.390/.460 (aided and abetted by a .368 BABIP). Since then, he's taken turns being injured and ineffective. He tore his meniscus in 2010 and was never really the same. Last season, he was a super-utility guy, playing at least 1 game at 2B, 3B, LF, CF, and RF. He was a 3B in college and is not a great fielder, but I guess he's got as good a chance as anyone to be the 25th man on this roster and romantic, hot-chocolate-by-the-fire types can always dream on a return to the form he took a half-decade ago. He bats lefty, so he basically replaces Brian Bogusevic on our roster. 

You can now consider Justin Ruggiano a freeroll.
