Here's a summary of BA's scouting reports:
Good hand-eye coordination, athleticism, and plate coverage. Strong, but more of a line drive hitter as evidenced by his 45 doubles (tied for third most in minors). Average speed, strong and accuract arm. Mixed reviews in left field but Reds were impressed with the progress he made. Inexperienced at second base.
Great instincts. Good approach at the plate and routinely puts together solid plate appearances. Good bat speed. Above-average runner who is very smart on the bases. Lacks a classic center fielder's body, but plays good defense has a strong, accurate arm.
88-91 mph fastball, throws changeup at 75-79 and is a plus to plus-plus pitch with great sink. Mixes in a 83-86 mph cutter that he uses to jam righthanded hitters. Also throws a slow curve as a show-me pitch.
Ben Badler on Zack Cozart:
Dave (NW CT): Where does Zach Cozart fall into your rankings, and what does he need to improve upon for 2010?
Ben Badler: He'd probably be somewhere in that 21-30 range. He's not a speedster but he has good instincts in the field and is a good defender at shortstop. I like him as a sleeper who might put it all together a couple years down the road once he continues to gain strength and become more of a force at the plate.
