winter is here

Chris Coghlan’s quest to get back to the big leagues has taken him to the Dominican Republic. The former Ole Miss standout went 3-for-5 with a homer in his winter league debut on Sunday. Coghlan, a former National League rookie of the year, hit just .140 in 39 games with Miami this season and spent most of 2012 at Triple-A New Orleans. In 89 games for the Zephyrs, he batted .284 with seven homers and 31 RBIs. It’ll be interesting to see what the future holds. … Justin Henry, another ex-Rebel, is playing in Venezuela. Henry, a sixth-year pro who has yet to make The Show, batted .300 at Triple-A Toledo in the Detroit system this season. He is off to a .357 start with Zulia, playing on a team that includes Mississippi Braves alums Ernesto Mejia and Evan Gattis.
