Reds | Zack Cozart bothered by wrist

Wed, 06 May 2015 07:10:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (wrist) is bothered by a sore left wrist that was hit by a pitch over the weekend, and his index finger is fine. "I thought it was good Sunday after the X-rays," Cozart said. "But when I woke up, it was tight. I don't think it's going to be a long-term thing. Once the inflammation gets out of there, I should fine."

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($4,400, 8.8% of your cap) is a midrange shortstop on FantasyScore when he returns.

Reds | Zack Cozart not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 05 May 2015 12:42:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (finger, wrist) is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 5, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. SS Kristopher Negron is in the lineup and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Cozart ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) from your lineup until he is 100 percent healthy. It may be just another game or two. Negron ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may be a way to save a bit of money and spend it other places, and he might be a good low-cost alternative.

Reds | Zack Cozart injured

Sun, 03 May 2015 13:58:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (finger) bruised his right index finger fielding a ground ball Sunday, May 3, against the Atlanta Braves. He left the game. X-rays were negative.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) may miss a game, but the odds are equally good he'll be all right for the next contest. Keep an eye on his progress.

Reds | Zack Cozart showing power stroke

Sat, 02 May 2015 19:11:02 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored in an 8-4 win over the Atlanta Braves Saturday, May 2, and he now leads all shortstops with five home runs this season.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) hit four home runs in 506 at-bats last year, and he has already topped that total in just 91 at-bats this year. It is hard to imagine him continuing this pace all season, but in the meantime, he is a great value play at FantasyScore.

Reds | Zack Cozart moved to two-hole

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 22:54:10 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart was moved to the No. 2 spot of the lineup Monday, April 27, against the Milwaukee Brewers, going 1-for-4 with a triple, run scored and RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Bryan Price was shaking things up, and Cozart responded well. FantasyScore owners should like Cozart ($2,300; 4.6% of cap) a lot more at the two-hole rather than the bottom of the order due to more at-bats and runs scored.

Reds | Cincy switches up lineup Monday

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:03:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart, who is hitting .303 on the season, was moved up to the second spot in the batting order Monday, April 27, with 2B Brandon Phillips dropping to sixth. 1B Joey Votto is now hitting third, and 3B Todd Frazier is in the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: The most notable move is for Cozart ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) jumping up to the top of the lineup. While facing a tough matchup in the improving Jimmy Nelson of the Milwaukee Brewers Monday night, the two-hole boosts Cozart's FantasyScore value at shortstop.

Reds | Zack Cozart dicusses early-season success

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 06:49:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart spent the majority of the winter watching video of himself, and said "I looked for the problem, I found it and I fixed it. It was all about getting my swing loaded before the pitch arrives." Cozart also credited retired SS Barry Larkin for giving him a few tips during spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has four home runs through 17 games this season, which is significant because he only hit four through 147 games in 2014. He reached double-digit jacks in each of his first two full seasons in the majors, though, so this isn't foreign territory. FantasyScore players have a nice low-priced flier on their hands at a shallow position for as long as Cozart continues to stay hot.

Reds | Zack Cozart fixed swing

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:47:45 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart said he watched countless hours of film on his swing in the offense, and he made some changes that appear to be paying off so far in 2015. "I looked for the problem, I found it and I fixed it," said Cozart. "It was all about getting my swing loaded before the pitch arrives." Cozart is hitting .328 and already has four home runs after hitting just .221 last year.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) surely isn't as good as his 2015 start suggests, but fantasy owners can't simply ignore the gains he's made in the early going. Still, while he's going well at FantasyScore, you should consider him a cheap sleeper at shortstop while hitting in a potent Cincy lineup. He's back in the eight spot tonight against Chicago Cubs starter Jon Lester, which makes him a little less attractive.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($2,300, 4.6% of your cap) is off to a fast .333-4-8 start. He's worth the low-end flyer on FantasyScore.
