The Phillies have released outfielder/infielder Chris Coghlan.

Coghlan, who was thought to be the favorite for a bench spot with the Phillies, had to know his fate for 2017 by the end of Tuesday or else be released. Thus, he’s now on the market.

In 19 spring games, Coghlan hit .231 with a .319 on-base percentage and .282 slugging percentage. Other bench candidates – like Brock Stassi, Jesmuel Valentin and Daniel Nava – outhit him during the spring.
