Reds | Zack Cozart undergoes surgery

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 23:03:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (knee) had surgery on his right knee Monday, June 15, and he is expected to require seven to nine months to recover.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Eugenio Suarez ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) will continue to see regular playing time, and he comes with a low FantasyScore price tag.

Reds | Zack Cozart done for the year

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 11:40:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (knee) suffered torn ligaments and the biceps tendon in his right knee Wednesday, June 10, and he's expected to have surgery Monday, June 15. Cozart's rehab is expected to last roughly nine months.

Fantasy Tip: It's a shame for Cozart and his owners. He was in the midst of a breakout season, hitting .258 (50-for-194) with nine home runs and 28 RBI. This devastating injury will also put his 2016 season in doubt. You can safely drop him in all single-year formats. Kris Negron ($2,000, 4.0% of cap), Ivan De Jesus ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Eugenio Suarez could all see time at shortstop now. None of these infielders is particularly intriguing, although De Jesus probably has the most intrigue after homering twice this week.

Reds | Zack Cozart headed for DL

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 14:36:20 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (knee) will land on the disabled list after injuring his right knee Wednesday, June 10, according to manager Bryan Price. The team is awaiting the results of an MRI exam.

Fantasy Tip: Brace yourselves for a prolonged absence if you own Cozart. Kris Negron ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is the likely candidate to take over at shortstop. Negron has just nine hits in 69 at-bats (.130), though, and he's nothing more than a warm body in deep NL-only leagues. Avoid him at FantasyScore.

Reds | Zack Cozart has knee injury

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 10:57:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (knee) injured his right knee in the first inning of the game Wednesday, June 10, and he had to be helped from the field. Cozart fell to the ground and grabbed his right knee immediately after his foot slipped across first base as he tried to beat out a ground ball. He was in plenty of pain as he left the field and wasn't putting any weight on his leg.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Cozart ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) owners, it looks like he'll need considerable time off after this injury. Check back for more updates on his condition after he undergoes tests to determine a timetable for a return. The Reds' bench isn't very strong, and Kris Negron ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is the likely replacement at shortstop for Cozart. You can ignore Negron at FantasyScore.

Reds | Zack Cozart helped off field

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 09:51:02 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart (leg) left the game Wednesday, June 10, after he fell at first base and grabbed his right leg. He was helped off the field and wasn't able to put any weight on his right leg.

Fantasy Tip: We'll obviously need to wait for more information, but Cozart ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore the next couple of days.

Reds | Zack Cozart leading off against Phils

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 09:16:17 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is hitting leadoff against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerome Williams Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) hit his ninth home run of the season last night and faces a nice matchup today against Williams, who has given up at least three earned runs in his last four starts. Hitting atop the order gives Cozart added value today at FantasyScore.

Reds | Zack Cozart leaves the yard

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 19:27:54 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart hit his ninth home run of the season during the Reds' 11-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, June 9. He also drove in three runs to improve his RBI total to 28.

Fantasy Tip: It was Cozart's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) third home run over the past four games, as he continues his breakout season. Entering the game Tuesday, though, Cozart was sporting a .173 batting average over his past 19 games, and despite the home run, his 1-for-5 showing didn't help the skid. Still, his FantasyScore price is reasonable, so Cozart should be viewed as an upside source of cap relief in favorable matchups going forward, albeit a risky one.

Reds | Zack Cozart at leadoff Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:36:38 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is hitting leadoff against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has cooled off a bit of late, but he, along with most of the rest of Cincinnati's lineup, makes for a strong start against spot starter Rusin tonight at FantasyScore.

Reds | Zack Cozart not playing Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:08:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. INF Kris Negron will be the starting shortstop for the Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Cozart ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is receiving a day off after starting in the last several games. Negron ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has not been very successful in his limited playing time this season and should not be used on FantasyScore.
