Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan boiled down his experience this spring to one word: "Humbling."

The 2009 National League Rookie of the Year is fighting for a roster spot as a reserve outfielder as spring training winds down.

"It is a cut-throat business and when you are injured and been out, there is always somebody coming to take your job," Coghlan said before Sunday's game at Charlotte Sports Park.

"I don't need to prove that I can play at this level. I need to prove I can stay healthy and finish a full season."
