Cozart is not in the lineup Sunday against the Phillies, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. Cozart has made four straight starts at shortstop, but will give way to Ivan De Jesus for the afternoon contest. Over 10 games since the beginning of May, Cozart is slashing just .222/.237/.444, but due to a hot start to the year, still owns a batting average of .315. Look for Cozart to return to action Monday when the Reds open up a four-game series against the Indians.

Cozart (knee) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants, Jamie Ramsey of the Reds' front office reports.

He is still hitting .347 19 games into the season.
Cozart (knee) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Giants. Cozart has been dealing with knee tendinitis, and it appears that manager Bryan Price wants to give the shortstop's knee another day to rest before returning to full action again.
