Rangers' Pete Kozma: Utility infielder striking out far too often
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kozma is hitting .158 in 23 plate appearances since being claimed off waivers by the Rangers in late April.

The long-time Cardinal is serving in a utility role this season, playing anywhere along the infield besides first. He's only been given a starting nod four times with the Rangers, and the lack of consistent playing time has taken it's toll on the 29-year-old. He's struck out 10 times in a Texas uniform, doubling the amount of times he's got on base. Between the poor numbers and the lack of playing time, any fantasy value Kozma retains this season is minimal at best.

Rangers' Pete Kozma: Homers in rare start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kozma went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Tigers.

With Joey Gallo receiving the night off for rest, Kozma made just his second start with the Rangers since being claimed off waivers in late April. Kozma certainly performed a decent Gallo impression in slugging his first homer since 2013, but his main value to the Rangers comes in the form of his defensive versatility rather than his bat. So long as health permits for Gallo and the rest of the regulars in the Rangers infield, Kozma is unlikely to see consistent at-bats at any point this season.

Rangers' Pete Kozma: Claimed by Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kozma was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on Sunday.

The Yankees had no room for Kozma on the 40-man roster after activating Didi Gregorius from the disabled list earlier in the weekend, but the Rangers determined the veteran utility man could offer the team some quality infield depth while Hanser Alberto (shoulder) and Adrian Beltre (calf) remain sidelined. Kozma isn't expected to see regular at-bats with the Rangers and will just act as insurance at second base, third base and shortstop.

Yankees' Pete Kozma: Designated for assignment Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kozma was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Friday.

New York's move to DFA Kozma was a result of the team needing a roster spot for Didi Gregorious, who is returning from the 10-day disabled list. The 29-year-old has gotten off to an unimpressive start this season, as he has mustered just one hit in 10 plate appearances thus far.

Yankees' Pete Kozma: Set to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kozma is in the starting lineup for the first time this season Wednesday, batting ninth and starting at shortstop.

With lineup-regular Ronald Torreyes taking the day off, Kozma finally gets his shot at game action. The veteran shortstop made the roster as a replacement for the injured Didi Gregorius (shoulder), but has received just one at-bat thus far. He'll need to prove his worth if he hopes to avoid a demotion to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he batted a miserable .209/.268/.265 over 130 games last season.
