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.
