Reds SS Zack Cozart corrected glitch in swing during offseason
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Reds shortstop Zack Cozart told reporters he compared videos of his swing from last season to the days where his power numbers were up and noticed a glitch, per MLB.com. Cozart noted that his front shoulder was not turning correctly, and it was "easy to fix" for this season.

"I looked to find that one little thing I was doing different. It was something really small and it was an easy fix," Cozart said. "That's a huge positive when you find something like that."

Cozart will likely bat eighth in the order this season. Last season, he hit just .221 with four home runs and 38 RBI in 2014. He is a lifetime .243 hitter over his first four seasons in the majors.

Reds' Cozart will have to improve offensively to keep starting job
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While Reds general manager Walt Jocketty has maintained Zack Cozart is the team's starting shortstop, despite the acquisition of Eugenio Suarez, apparently Cozart will have to become a better offensive player or fear losing his starting job.

"Cozart hasn't had much competition in past years. He has to improve offensively to continue to be an everyday shortstop," Jocketty said, per MLB.com. "Defensively, he is as good as anyone in either league, but he needs to improve offensively."

The 29-year-old Cozart hit just .221 with four home runs, 18 doubles and 38 RBI in 147 games in 2014. He has a career .243/.281/.365/.646 slash line in 447 games.

Suarez trade doesn't change Cozart's status as Reds' top shortstop
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Although the Reds acquired shortstop Eguenio Suarez in a trade with the Tigers on Thursday, Reds general manager Walt Jocketty stressed Zack Cozart is still the team's starting shortstop, per MLB Network Radio.

"Cozart is our opening day shortstop and he's one of the best in the league," Jocketty said.
