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' Rookie Davis: Starting first spring training game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis will start Friday's spring training game against the Giants to open the Cactus League season for the Reds.

Davis is loosely in the competition for the Reds' fifth starter job, but he's behind a host of other pitchers, young and old. Triple-A Louisville is his most likely destination to begin the season.

Reds' Tony Cingrani: Working on adding breaking pitch
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cingrani is working on another pitch, a cut fastball, to add to his repertoire in 2017, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "It's just another way to get guys out," Cingrani said. "It gets hitters off thinking it's just going to be a fastball. I'm still trying to work on how I want that ball to move, but it's good and feels comfortable."

The southpaw has relied on his mid 90s four-seam fastball heavily throughout his career, throwing it more than 87 percent of the time in 2016. He is working on a breaking pitch in order to mix things up and keep batters guessing. He led the Reds with 17 saves while posting a 4.14 ERA in 65 appearances last season, although he'll likely see fewer save opportunities in 2017 as the Reds are contemplating a four-man closer committee.

Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Working on pitch-framing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnhart is working on his pitch-framing skills this spring, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Barnhart isn't necessarily a bad receiver, but he was rated by Baseball Prospectus as costing the Reds 4.4 runs last season. That puts him a little below average, but not so egregious that it will cost him much playing time.

Reds' Tony Cingrani: Potential saves in Reds committee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cingrani could get a few saves in 2017, with the team contemplating a four-man closer committee.

Judging from manager Bryan Price's quote, however, Cingrani is the fourth option, based on the possible game situation. "I would really like to see this particular game plan we have in place work out," Price said on Sunday. "We want to look at the end of the year and we see Storen and Iglesias and Lorenzen, in particular, with some saves. That may mean Cingrani as well, if he's the best guy we have for that situation in the ninth inning."
