2016 Player Review: David Lough

Editor's Note: This is the 25th in a series of looks at the men who suited up for the 2016 Philadelphia Phillies. Severino Gonzalez was the last player profiled.

David Lough has some interesting tools. He plays great defense. He doesn't strike out much. He can run a bit, too.
He's not a bad fifth outfielder to have around. In just 96 games during the 2013 season, he pulled off a 2.7 WAR. That season, he had a .286/.311/.413 slash line, stole five bases, hit five home runs and slashed 17 doubles. He put up similar numbers in 2014, his first year with the Orioles.
Since then, however, he's had trouble converting his contact to hits.
Early on, it seemed as if Lough had figured things out. He hit .311/.364/.379.
Afterward, however, he hit .184/.326/.263.
The Phillies released Lough in August.

2016 grade: C-
Will we see him again in 2017: Not likely.

Just another run of the mill reserve outfielder.

Phillies sign Chris Coghlan to minor league deal. Quality hitter for most of his career, coming off a tough go of it with the A's for the 1st part of last season. He was good with the Cubs though, where he won the World Series. This is a great minor league signing. He's versatile and normally can hit. He's a career .260/.736 hitter over 8 mlb seasons.

Hopefully Klentak can snag a couple relief pitchers on minor league deals here in the next couple weeks...seeing that Spring Training is right around the corner and guys are likely getting desperate.

He would be a great bench player. Can play OF and 2B and 3B
