Q&A: Buck Coats

Buck Coats came into the year knowing he needed to acclimate himself to the outfield. Six months later, the 24-year-old Fort Benning, Ga., native is with the Cubs as a September call-up.

Coats hit .282 with seven home runs, 21 doubles and 51 RBIs in 124 games in his first Triple-A season in 2006. He was recalled from Iowa in late August and sent back to the team for the remainder of the regular season before re-joining the major league squad during the first week of September.
