Description: Reds shortstop Zack Cozart is hitting .400 (4-for-10) with two home runs in his career against Braves starter Mike Minor.

Description: Reds shortstop Zack Cozart is 5-for-9 (.556) with three extra-base hits and a 1.711 OPS versus Rockies Game 1 starter Jordan Lyles.
Insight: Cozart's production has dropped each season since his debut in 2011, but he's been batting .282 over the past two weeks and may be worth a one-day flier in this favorable matchup.

Description: Reds shortstop Zack Cozart is not in Saturday's starting lineup.
Insight: Cozart has done nothing this season, batting .237 with two homers and 17 RBI. He hit 15 homers in his first full season back in 2012 and a dozen last season, but at this pace won't get close to doubler digits. Ramon Santiago will get the start, but has no fantasy value.

Description: Reds shortstop Zack Cozart hasn't had much luck against Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright in his career.
Insight: He's hitting a buck-82 against him with four strikeouts in 22 at bats. Cozart, a .250 lifetime hitter in 343 major league appearances, isn't currently on the fantasy radar.

Description: Cincinnati shortstop Zack Cozart pounded three hits in Thursday's win over the Padres.
Insight: Cozart plated two runs in the victory. That snaps a streak of 16 consecutive games without a run batted in. Cozart (.208, 1 HR, 11 RBI) will have a good game now and then but he isn't consistent enough to be on the fantasy radar.
 
5/10/2014 1:23:00 PM
Description: Reds shortstop Zack Cozart is 5-for-7 (.714) against Colorado starter Jordan Lyles.
Insight: Cozart's bat has been silent all season (.195, 1 HR, 9 RBI), so despite this favorable matchup we recommend looking elsewhere. He's been a double-digit home run producer the past two seasons, but his OPS has headed in the wrong direction in each succeeding season.
 
4/30/2014 10:09:00 PM
Description: Reds shortstop Zack Cozart is just 1-for-11 with three strikeouts versus braves starter Shelby Miller.
Insight: Cozart is off to a fast start, batting .282 with four homers and 10 RBI and continues to play solid defense, however this matchup should be avoided.
