News: Coghlan is out of the lineup Friday against the Dodgers. Impact: Coghlan has started 10 of the Cubs' past 11 games in left field, but will take a seat Friday with southpaw Clayton Kershaw on the hill for the opposing Dodgers. Coghlan is slugging 81 points lower against left-handed pitching this season, so manager Rick Renteria likely wanted to get another right-handed bat in his lineup with the tough lefty on the mound. As a result, Junior Lake will take over in left field.(RotoWire, )

News: Coghlan is not in the lineup Saturday against the Pirates. Impact: Manager Rick Renteria has all but rid his lineup of lefty-only bats to counter Pirates starter Jeff Locke, with the lone exception being Luis Valbuena at third base. Coghlan has posted a .708 OPS so far in the second half but should continue leading off most days for the Cubs. Those duties will fall to Arismendy Alcantara on Saturday.(RotoWire, )
