Zack Cozart launched a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Giants.
Cozart missed some time earlier this week with a wrist injury, but he's obviously feeling better now. He's already up to six home runs on the year, which is two more than he had all of last season. We're still skeptical that his .319 batting average is meant to last, but he has amassed as many as 15 home runs in a season before and hitting second in the Reds' lineup should help him stay fantasy relevant.
