RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Dylan Cozens.
Cozens was named the MVP of the Eastern League after hitting .276/.350/.591 with 40 home runs, 38 doubles, 125 RBI and 21 stolen bases for Double-A Reading last season. The numbers, while impressive, have to be taken with a grain of salt given the hitter-friendly park in Reading. Cozens hit 29 of his 40 home runs at home where he also had a 1.118 OPS compared to a .766 OPS on the road. He also struck out 186 times in 134 games and struggled against lefties, hitting just .197 with a .640 OPS in 127 at-bats. The upside with Cozens is immense given his power, but it remains to be seen how he handles advanced pitching. He will certainly need to improve on his 31.7 percent strikeout rate to avoid being a batting average drain if he makes it to the majors. He should get an invitation to spring training with the Phillies this season, but he is likely ticketed for some time in Triple-A early this year.
Cozens, who will turn 20-years-old this season, was the Phillies' second-round pick in 2012. The 6-6, 235-pound outfielder showed some signs of his power potential last season with nine home runs in 245 at-bats for Short-Season Williamsport. There are questions about his ability to stay in the outfield as he continues to mature, so a move to first base could be in his future. Cozens should open the year at Low-A Lakewood, and get his first taste of full-season ball.
