Zack Cozart will undergo testing on his strained left shoulder on Thursday.

Cozart told reporters after the game that the shoulder felt "not great," which is probably how fans of the Angels feel about their recent rash of injuries. Depending on the results of testing, there's a good chance the former Cincinnati infielder will go on the disabled list, but we should find out more on his status when we hear the results of his likely MRI.

Zack Cozart left Wednesday's game against the Angels with a left shoulder strain.

Cozart suffered the injury while making a diving stop on the field in the third inning, and he was replaced by Nolan Fontana in the field. He'll likely undergo more testing on the shoulder, and then be reevaluated. It's very likely that Cozart will at least miss a game or two, and a trip to the disabled list is a strong possibility as well. Another blow for the Los Angeles lineup.

He ripped a Zach Duke offering to left field that left fielder Eddie Rosario gloved but couldn't get off a throw, allowing Chris Young to race home to score. Cozart has a pedestrian .241/.306/.441 line overall, but since May 5 he's got 11 hits in 37 at-bats, a .297 average, with two homers, four RBI and six runs scored.
