Description: The Cincinnati Reds have sent Paul Janish to Triple-A Louisville. Janish has a good glove, but wasn't a threat with the stick in his hand.
Insight: The Janish move assures that Zack Cozart will play almost everyday and if he is as good as advertised could have excellent fantasy value. Cozart has 15-20 home run power and could steal double-digit bases. The youngster is worthy of a late-round selection.
