Reds Free Agent Zack Cozart Reportedly Signs With Angels

Published

on

Former Cincinnati Reds SS Zack Cozart is reportedly headed out west to join the Los Angeles Angels, according to sources.

According to Ken Rosenthal, Cozart and the Angels have agreed to a 3 year, $38 million deal. He is expected to play 3rd base for the newly revamped Angels.

Cozart had a career year for the Reds in 2017. In 122 games, Cozart hit .297 with a career-best 24 home runs and 63 RBIs. He also made his first ever All Star appearance in July, starting at SS for the National League.

Cozart made his big league debut for the Reds in 2011 and played his first full season as the Reds starting shortstop in 2012.

At age 32, Cozart is getting up there in years, but if last year proves anything, he is at his prime both offensively and defensively. Generally regarded as a better defensive player than an offensive one, Cozart and the Angels hope his offensive production carries over into next season.

The Cincinnati Reds have placed Joey Votto on the 10-day disabled list due to a right knee contusion that he suffered last week when he was hit near the knee by Washington Nationals pitcher Ryan Madson in what has been viewed as intentional.

After the hit, Votto limped to first base as he barked at Madson, who appeared to be retaliating for the plunking of National players, such as Bryce Harper.

The trip to the disabled list will mark the first one for Votto since 2014, and he is posting a .284/.422/.419 batting line this season.
