Batting Cozart 8th would help his obp quite a bit. Assume improvement and you could see him with a line of .265/.340/.445 at his peak. But it's not his ceiling that's interesting; it's his floor. He's a pretty solid bet to hit somewhere between 15 - 20 HR over a full season.
Gregorius would have to find 50 more points of slugging to get near him. That's a tall order. (Though, to be fair, the guy is only 22.)
