RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Cozart and Drew Stubbs combined to give the Reds the least productive leadoff hitters in baseball, with Cozart hitting .223/.262/.379 in 465 plate appearances there. He did hit much better in the second spot in the order (.324/.378/.490) in 110 appearances, which is helpful as the Reds' stated goal this offseason was to acquire a leadoff hitter. Cozart is solid defensively, but he does not project to be an elite player with his glove. His 15 homers were still among the best for NL shortstops, though perhaps that's of rapidly diminishing value. Fortunately for Cozart, Billy Hamilton remains on track to play center field in 2013 even after the trade of Didi Gregorius in December.

2012

At press time, the Reds hadn't paired Cozart with a veteran caddy to compete for the starting job as they did the previous two years with Orlando Cabrera and Edgar Renteria, though the threat of Ryan Theriot still loomed. After starving for offense from the position between Paul Janish and Renteria in 2011, the Reds are crossing their fingers that Cozart is the answer. While Cozart held his own in his brief trial before an elbow injury ended his season, he didn't draw a walk in his 37 plate appearances. His minor league numbers suggest he's not a terribly patient hitter, either. In short, while he'll outproduce what the Reds got from the position last year, Cozart also has a limited offensive ceiling.

2011

The Reds are likely to start Paul Janish at shortstop this season and not bring in a veteran caretaker for the job, as they did last year with Orlando Cabrera. That means a utility job will be open for the Reds, and Cozart could win that job, as the better defender at short between he and Chris Valaika. Unfortunately, Cozart's bat isn't really ready after a campaign at Triple-A Louisville where he posted a measly .310 OBP. He has some power, but there's not much upside here.
