Coats began his professional career with the Chicago Cubs after being selected in the 18th round of the 2000 draft. In 11 minor league seasons, he owns a career line of .285/.345/.392 with 46 home runs in 3985 at bats.
Coats made his big league with the Cubs in 2006, and he's spent parts of three seasons in the majors with three different clubs. In 57 career at bats, Coats is a lifetime .193/.242/.333 hitter in the big leagues.
