Zack Cozart News Archive
Cozart (knee) made his spring training debut Wednesday and homered while going 1-for-3.
Cozart was a healthy scratch from Tuesday's spring training game against the White Sox.
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?"
