Eugenio Suarez had an RBI single and a run scored Monday against the Pirates.

Suarez has done a really nice job filling in for Zack Cozart (knee) at shortstop, batting .291/.328/.475 with 11 home runs, 42 RBI, and four steals over 73 games. His success has largely flown under the radar in fantasy leagues. Cozart is expected to be ready for the start of the 2016 season, so something will have to give with this situation over the winter.

He has done a terrific job filling in for the injured Zack Cozart, slashing .291/.326/.481 with 11 homers and 41 RBI. He's certainly making a push for consideration to be the team's starting shortstop heading into the 2016 season.

Aug 14 - 1:53 AM

Filling in for the injured Zack Cozart, Suarez has been one of the best stories to come along this season and his .302/.333/.456 triple-slash isn't anything to sneeze at.

The homer was Suarez's fourth of the season and he hit it off Reds starter Adam Conley with two outs in the second inning. While filling in for Zack Cozart (knee), Suarez has played well and is slashing a strong .326/.363/.500 with four homers, 14 RBI and three steals across 83 at-bats. The average is unlikely to stick at that level, but he's doing the job so far.
Jul 11 - 7:22 PM

Suarez took over for Zack Cozart at shortstop and has held his own, hitting .328/.369/.475. Despite that, his offensive upside is limited and he can be ignored in most fantasy formats.

Suarez had logged four straight multi-hit games between June 21-25 and did it again on Monday. He doubled in two runs in the third inning and singled in a run in the sixth in a slugfest. Suarez is filling in for the injured Zack Cozart and has done well thus far, batting .316/.361/.421 with nine RBI and three stolen bases in 62 plate appearances.
Jun 29 - 11:04 PM

Eugenio Suarez homered Saturday against the Cubs in his third game for the Reds.

The Reds did take a hit when they lost Zack Cozart, but it shouldn't be all that big of one, as long as Suarez stays healthy. He's the better hitter of the two, at the cost of some range on defense. It's unlikely that Suarez will have much value in mixed leagues, since he's not much of a basestealer, but he should be a fine NL-only middle infielder the rest of the way.
Jun 14 - 1:43 AM

Reds recalled SS Eugenio Suarez from Triple-A Louisville.

Zack Cozart suffered a season-ending knee injury on Wednesday, so the Reds will turn starting shortstop duties over to the 23-year-old Suarez. He has registered a decent .256/.348/.438 batting line with eight home runs and 25 RBI in 57 games this season for Louisville and could hold value in some mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 11 - 3:00 PM

Reds optioned INF Eugenio Suarez to Triple-A Louisville.

Suarez, 23, was acquired from the Tigers over the winter in the Alfredo Simon deal. We should see him with the Reds soon, especially if Zack Cozart continues to struggle.
