Florida/Miami Marlins

Since joining the Marlins organization, Coghlan has played for the Gulf Coast Marlins (Rookie level), the Jamestown Jammers (Low-A), the Greensboro Grasshoppers (A), the Jupiter Hammerheads (High-A), the Carolina Mudcats (Double-A) and the New Orleans Zephyrs (Triple-A). Much of his time in the minors was spent switching positions from his college position of third baseman to second baseman, and eventually left fielder upon being called up to the Florida Marlins.

Coghlan made his major league debut on May 8, 2009. On August 9, 2009, he set the Marlins team record for consecutive multi-hit games at 8.

Coghlan had 41 hits in August 2009, the most for a rookie since Todd Helton hit 45 in August 1998, earning him Rookie of the Month honors. He then followed with 50 hits in September/October 2009, the first rookie with back to back 40+ hit months, and the first player to do so since Ichiro Suzuki in 2004. His .321 batting average was 6th in NL among all players and 1st among all rookies. After the MLB All-Star break, Coghlan led all major league players in batting average (.372) and hits (113). His overall performance earned him the National League Rookie of the Year Award on November 16, 2009.

In April 2012, Coghlan was sent down to New Orleans, with Bryan Petersen being recalled to take his place. Coghlan was hitting .121 with a .299 OPS and 2 RBI in Miami.

In May 2012, Coghlan, along with Donovan Solano, were called up by the Marlins after Emillio Bonifacio was placed on the Disabled list with a thumb injury. He later started in the same day against the Cleveland Indians going 0-4 with a RBI

In June 2012, Coghlan was sent down for a second time to the New Orleans Zephyrs to make room for Scott Cousins.
