Reds move Brandon Phillips to top of order over Zack Cozart
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Red manager Bryan Price inserted second baseman Brandon Phillips into the leadoff spot for Friday's contest against the Indians. It's the first time since Sept. 25, 2014, he's at the top of the order.

Phillips bumped Zack Cozart to the No. 2 hole against right-hander Carlos Carrasco.

Phillips is hitting .357 (25 for 70) with two homers, 11 RBI and six walks over his last 19 games played. Cozart has just one hit over his last 16 at-bats.

Cincinnati is an underdog (+155) at Cleveland, per VegasInsider.com.

Reds stick with Zack Cozart leading off, Billy Hamilton eighth Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is in the starting lineup Sunday against the Giants but not leading off for the first time this season.

Hamilton, who was not in the lineup Saturday, has started 33 of the team's 37 games and led off in every one, but he'll bat ahead of the pitcher Sunday. He's hit .212/.264/.336 with three home runs, six RBI, 22 runs scored and 17 stolen bases in 137 at-bats.

Shortstop Zack Cozart drew his first start in the leadoff role Saturday after three games as the No. 2 hitter, and though he went 0 for 3, he did draw two walks in his team's loss to the Giants. He has hit .310/.364/.543 with six home runs, 17 RBI, 19 runs scored and three stolen bases in 116 at-bats.

The Reds are favorites (-112) against the Giants at home Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.

Reds shortstop Zack Cozart impressing coaches early on
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Reds shortstop Zack Cozart has been on a tear this season. The 29-year-old .319 with six home runs and 17 RBI in 113 at-bats to start the year, something that has caught manager Bryan Price's eye, according to Cincinnati.com.

"He's been great," Price said. "I've said it a lot this year because he had such a tough year last year, and got off to such a slow start and really had to find his way. I've never seen him look like this."

Cozart has battled through wrist and finger injuries to start the year as well.

"Towards the end of 2013 he was starting to hit the ball really well to right field, then he struggled with that last year," Price said. "He's back at it. Not just base hits in front of the right fielder, but gap shots to right center and really driving the ball."

Cozart credits his hot start to being more aggressive.

"Not going up there looking to take a lot of pitches and fall behind in the count," Cozart said. "Last year I felt like I got 0-1 and 0-2 a lot without even swinging the bat. This year I'm on the attack. I'm actually seeing a lot better pitches to hit, for that reason.

Reds SS Zack Cozart returns to lineup on Wednesday vs. Braves
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Reds shorstop Zack Cozart is back in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Braves. Cozart was scratched on Monday with soreness in his wrist. Cozart missed a few games earlier this month with a wrist injury, but he appears to be ready to go and is batting second on Wednesday.

Kris Negron will slide over to second base with Brandon Phillips unable to go due to a toe injury.
