His strikeout rate this year is 14.1%. That is a high rate of contact. Only Brandon Phillips and Ryan Hanigan make more contact on the Reds. His plate discipline is fine.
How is Didi's spray chart? I can't remember Cozart hitting a ball to right field for a hit this year (maybe I missed it), so I was just wondering if Didi uses the entire field. I realize he's only a rookie, but Cozart sure swings at a LOT of pitches, seems to be immune to taking a walk, and he pulls everything. Just seems like he's going to need some adjustments when pitchers throw everything away to him.
