RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

With Rafael Furcal out with an elbow injury, the Cardinals turned to Kozma in September and October. While Kozma drew eight walks in 13 postseason games, it was his September performance that really opened eyes. Kozma hit .349/.386/.619 with 10 extra-base hits in 63 September at-bats. Furcal's status for the beginning of 2013 is in doubt, so unless the Cardinals find a free agent shortstop, Kozma may only have to beat out Daniel Descalso for the starting job on Opening Day. Just note that Kozma's minor league numbers don't even come close to projecting him as a .300 hitter in the majors - he's a .223 hitter in 846 Triple-A at-bats.

2011

The best thing about Kozma is his glove, but that's not saying much. His second year with Double-A Springfield was certainly better than his first, but don't get too excited by the 13 home runs and 13 stolen bases as they came with a .243 batting average and .702 OPS. If you struggle to top .700 OPS in your second year in Double-A, you're probably a long way from the majors. Still, at age 22 he has time to turn it around.

2010

Kozma has a nice glove, but after a terrible season with the bat in Double-A Springfield last year, it looks like it could be awhile before he can be counted upon to win a starting job with the big club. Kozma turns 22 this spring, so he's still young enough to turn it around, but Brendan Ryan or Tyler Greene could be good enough to hold the shortstop job in St. Louis if Kozma never develops.

2008

Kozma, the Cardinals' first-round pick in 2007, hit a combined .233/.313/.342 in 42 games between the Arizona Fall League, the Appalachian League, and the New York-Penn League. The constant moving around prevented him from getting his footing at any one level, making it hard to get a good read on his numbers. He will probably begin 2008 in full-season ball in the Midwest League. He's still a few years away, but he's known more for his defense and as result, doesn't make for a good keeper candidate yet.
