Cubs Reacquire Chris Coghlan for Arismendy Alcantara

Posted on

Chris Coghlan was traded back to the Cubs from the A’s today for Arismendy Alcantara. Tommy La Stella was placed on the DL. Coghlan will provide a LH bat off the bench for the Cubs. His play will determine if he stays since the Cubs do need an additional LH bat on the bench. This could be the end of 3rd catcher Tim Federowicz.

For Alcantara, this could mean a new start for him. He was blocked in the Cubs system by Javy Baez and Addison Russell. This also clears the way for other Cub prospects to move up in the system including Chesny Young and Ian Happ.
