Reds | Zack Cozart nursing tendinitis

Mon, 02 May 2016 13:03:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (knee) could have played against the San Francisco Giants Monday, May 2, but manager Bryan Price gave him the day off to deal with tendinitis in his right knee.

Fantasy Tip: Monitor Cozart's injury status over the next few days, and it isn't out of the question to make preparations for a replacement in case the injury lingers. However, it sounds like Cozart is just nursing a minor ailment. He is off to a strong start with 14 runs and a .347/.350/.533 slash line. Stay tuned for updates.

Reds | Zack Cozart out of lineup

Mon, 02 May 2016 11:38:19 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (knee) is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 2. SS Ivan De Jesus is starting at the 6 and is batting second against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto. Also, OF Billy Hamilton moves to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart's injury is perplexing because it's the same knee he had surgery on last year. Make plans to replace him in case he's out for an extended period. De Jesus has very little power or speed and is a weak daily option against Cueto. Hamilton is only useful for is speed and struggles to reach base consistently, but he gains some daily value in the move to the top of the order today.

Reds | Zack Cozart pulled following knee injury

Sun, 01 May 2016 13:09:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (knee) left the game Sunday, May 1, against the Pittsburgh Pirates with an apparent right knee injury. Cozart, who reached on an error to start the top of the eighth inning but was met by a trainer at second base shortly thereafter, appeared to point to his right knee before walking off the field.

Fantasy Tip: There is reason for concern here since it is the same knee Cozart had ACL surgery on last season. The 30-year-old just wrapped up an incredible April atop the Reds' order, batting .361 with two homers, nine RBI and 13 runs scored. Ivan De Jesus replaced him in the field and would be a big drop-off offensively, as he entered Sunday hitting .133.

Reds | Billy Hamilton has three hits

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:02:28 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton had three hits Saturday, April 30, in a 5-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. He also scored the team's only run on a double by SS Zack Cozart.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton's average improved to .218, which illustrates his biggest problem. Hamilton is strong when on the basepaths, but getting him on base is the big issue. If Hamilton ever figures it out all the way, he could be a very dangerous player.

Reds | Devin Mesoraco, Zack Cosart resting

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:14:09 -0700

Cincinnati Reds C Devin Mesoraco and SS Zack Cozart are out of the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Sunday, April 24. C Tucker Barnhart will start behind the plate and bat seventh, while INF Ivan De Jesus will play shortstop and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Barnhart is 8-for-24 this season and is a solid option for daily fantasy owners looking for an inexpensive backstop. De Jesus has just one hit in 18 at-bats and should be avoided in all formats this afternoon.

Reds | Zack Cozart has day off

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 07:51:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 20, with OF Billy Hamilton leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton has struggled to get on base, and he only has two steals because of it. Today might be a day to give him a DFS start against Chad Bettis.

Reds | Zack Cozart keeps it going

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 14:50:20 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart ran his hitting streak to seven games on Saturday, April 16, against the St. Louis Cardinals, finishing 3-for-4 with two RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Although he has missed some time with a quadriceps injury, Cozart has been money atop the Reds' order and owns the rare distinction of having a higher batting average (.480) than on-base percentage (.464) at the moment. Ride the 30-year-old while he's hot, but owners should obviously be prepared for a decline in the near future.

Reds | Zack Cozart leading off vs. Cards

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 13:21:17 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (quadriceps) is starting at shortstop and leading off against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Friday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: While he is likely best left to deep mixed leagues, you'll want to return Cozart to your starting lineups where you were relying on him. He likely isn't a strong option in daily contests Friday, though. Martinez held right-handed batters to a .623 OPS in 2015.

Reds | Zack Cozart, Devin Mesoraco remain out

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 12:21:33 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (quadriceps) and C Devin Mesoraco (hip) both remain out of the starting lineup for the second straight day Thursday, April 14. 3B/SS Eugenio Suarez moves to shortstop and C Jordan Pacheco is starting at third and hitting seventh. C Tucker Barnhart is back in at catcher and is hitting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart and Mesoraco's injuries are both worth monitoring, especially with Mesoraco after he missed almost the entire season in 2015 due to hip problems. Both Pacheco and Barnhart are desperation fillers in daily formats.

Reds | Zack Cozart, Devin Mesoraco out

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 12:08:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (quadriceps) and C Devin Mesoraco are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. 2B Ivan De Jesus is starting at the 6 and hitting seventh, while C Tucker Barnhart is behind the plate and is batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP John Lackey. Also, OF Billy Hamilton moves up to the leadoff spot with Cozart out.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart's injury isn't believed to be serious, but keep an eye on his status and keep him out of your lineups for now. De Jesus and Barnhart don't move the needle very much in any fantasy format. Hamilton gains added value in daily formats with a move to the top of the lineup.
