Zack Cozart a decent replacement for injured shortstops


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2013) Reds shortstop Zack Cozart, owned in 61 percent of leagues, is hitting .357 with a double and a home run in the last six games. On the season, Cozart is hitting .249 with six home runs over 257 at-bats. 

Cozart has yet to show off the speed that made him a 30-steal shortstop in 2010 (at Triple-A). The power has been decent and the doubles have been nice, but Cozart's batting average tends to fluctuate and he has just 10 walks in 2013. 

While he's worth consideration in deeper (14-team) mixed leagues, Cozart has only scored 37 runs this season, despite batting second for the Reds, who have the eighth-most runs in baseball this year. He's a decent Fantasy option, but should be left for the Troy Tulowitzki or Everth Cabrera owners who missed out on Josh Rutledge and are scrambling for a replacement.
