Cozart had been sidelined since leaving Tuesday's game after he was hit by a pitch. He was dropped back to eighth in the lineup for this contest, which given his atrocious .225/.276/.293 slash line on the season is probably still too high.

Jun 1 - 7:21 PM

Zack Cozart was one of only a handful of Reds who had a respectable night at the plate in Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals, going 2-for-3 with a pair of singles.

Batting second for the second time this season, Zack Cozart went 3-for-5 with a steal against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Cozart has hit in five straight to raise his average from .203 to .228. Still, he's no one's idea of a No. 2 hitter. Besides the lifetime .284 OBP, today's steal was his first since 2012.

Zack Cozart went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

May 20 - 10:33 PM

Zack Cozart had three hits and two RBI against the Padres on Thursday to raise his average to .208.

Zack Cozart went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the Reds topped the Cubs 8-2 on Sunday.

Cozart hit his first home run of the year, a two-run shot, off Cubs reliever Jose Veras in a three-run seventh inning. He previously swatted an RBI double in the fourth inning, coming around to score on a Homer Bailey single. He's one of the worst-hitting everyday players in baseball, but Cozart still has enough pop to be dangerous on a given day.
Apr 20 - 7:20 PM

Zack Cozart went 0-for-4 Sunday and is hitless in 19 at-bats thus far this season.

Cozart is an offensive black hole for a decent hitting Reds team, as the shortstop owns a career .284 on-base percentage. This season, Cozart has five strikeouts without a walk. He's a non-entity in any fantasy format.
Apr 6 - 3:51 PM

Feb 27 - 6:33 PM
