|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Reds shortstop Zack Cozart went 1 for 4 at the plate in Cincinnati's 6-1 win over the Brewers Monday.

|(4/18/15) Zack Cozart went 3 for 4 with a home run in the Reds' 5-2 Saturday loss at St. Louis.

Reds' Price: No competition between Zack Cozart and Eugenio Suarez
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) Reds manager Bryan Price said Saturday there is no competition at shortstop between Zack Cozart and Eugenio Suarez, reports the Cincinnati Inquirer.
Cozart was the starting shortstop for the team most of last season, hitting .221 with four home runs and 38 RBI in 506 plate appearances. While Suarez hit .242 with four home runs and 23 RBI in 244 plate appearances.
Reds SS Zack Cozart corrected glitch in swing during offseason
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/26/15) Reds shortstop Zack Cozart told reporters he compared videos of his swing from last season to the days where his power numbers were up and noticed a glitch, per MLB.com. Cozart noted that his front shoulder was not turning correctly, and it was "easy to fix" for this season.
"I looked to find that one little thing I was doing different. It was something really small and it was an easy fix," Cozart said. "That's a huge positive when you find something like that."
Cozart will likely bat eighth in the order this season. Last season, he hit just .221 with four home runs and 38 RBI in 2014. He is a lifetime .243 hitter over his first four seasons in the majors.
Reds shortstop Zack Cozart to make $2.35M in 2015
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) The Reds and shortstop Zack Cozart avoided arbitration Friday, agreeing to a one-year, $2.35 million contract, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Cozart's 2014 salary was $600,000.
Cozart hit just .221 with four home runs and 38 RBI in 2014. He is a career .243 hitter over four seasons in the majors.
|2014 summary: Coming into the season, Zack Cozart had already earned the reputation of being an all-glove, no-bat shortstop, but he had just enough pop to merit some consideration for the MI spot in standard mixed Rotisserie leagues. In 2014, that power evaporated, as Cozart produced only four home runs and 18 doubles in 506 at-bats. Cozart did not even crack the top 30 shortstops in Fantasy value.|
Playing time status: Even with Eugenio Suarez waiting in the wings, Cozart's defense should keep him in the Reds' lineup on a steady basis.
2015 outlook: Cozart's power production has fallen in each of the past two seasons, so whatever rebound he might have could be mild. Only NL-only owners need to bother with him.
