Extremely SSS alert (136 ABs), but Cozart has a .324/.366/.493/.858 line hitting 2nd in his career.
I'm not saying it's ideal, but it seems like either Heisey or Cozart is going to hit 2nd. I'd give it to Cozart. Hanigan probably makes the most sense, but we all know that won't happen.
I know it sucks Ludwick is out, but the 8 guys the Reds are running out is still better offensively than the 8 they did last year, even if it's Heisey/Paul in LF.
