Reds' Zack Cozart: Spring training games delayed
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cozart (knee) won't be in the lineup Friday when the Reds begin spring training games. Instead, he'll likely start Monday or Tuesday next week. This isn't because there are problems with his knee, however. "He's fine. He could play tomorrow," manager Bryan Price said on Thursday. "They want to do some baserunning stuff with him to make sure his legs are conditioned coming off the DL at the end of the year. There's no reason he couldn't play. But why rush it with the length of spring training?"

Cozart confirmed that his knee is fine and that he's just working on getting his timing back. "There are no issues with me, we're just going to take it slow these first couple of games," Cozart said. "It was weird yesterday, we were doing that 27 outs [drill] and hitting and running out of the box, and having some game action on the field. It's just a whole different thing on your body. I'm ready for it. I told Bryan, physically, I feel great. I'm ready. We play a lot of games. I don't need to play 30 games or whatever we've got. I'll get my timing down."

Reds' Zack Cozart: Knee feels 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cozart (knee) said his knee is 100 percent and added he won't need to wear a brace in 2017, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

This is apparently the first time his knee is at 100 percent since injuring it in 2015, so this could be big news for Cozart, who is coming off one of the better seasons of his career before being shut down in September. The 31-year-old hit a career-high 16 homers last season while posting a .733 OPS, and he'll look to build on those numbers as the regular shortstop for the Reds in 2017.

Reds' Zack Cozart: Avoids arbitration with Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cozart avoided arbitration with the Reds, agreeing to a one-year, $5.325 million deal.

The Reds have dangled Cozart's name in trade talks this offseason but haven't made any tangible progress. They still need to find a way to make room for both Jose Peraza and Dilson Herrera to play, but both Cozart and Brandon Phillips remain ahead of them respectively.

Reds' Zack Cozart: Activated from DL on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cozart (knee) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Thursday.

Cozart missed most of the month of September with a knee problem, but with the season now complete and a few 40-man roster spots open, the Reds opted to activate the 31-year-old. He'll likely be in line to start at shortstop in 2017 once his knee heals over the offseason, though it remains to be seen if that will be in Cincinnati or with some other team.

Reds' Zack Cozart: Transferred to 60-day disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds transferred Cozart (knee) to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday.

Cozart had an outside shot to play before the regular season ended, but his move to the 60-day DL means he will not play again until 2017. He hit a career-high 16 home runs this season and posted a .733 OPS, so he figures to head into next year as a regular shortstop. Whether that is for the Reds remains to be seen, however, as he could bring prospects on the trade market to a Cincinnati team that may be looking at another rebuilding season.
