It really doesn't make sense. The only justification is avoiding three lefties in a row.
But with Paul hitting second, you'd pinch hit for him in the lefty reliever/three consecutive lefty situation.
Of course, the Reds really don't have a good righty pinch hitter for Paul, but Robinson gets on base with flairs and speed.
Choo/Votto is such a compelling duo, Cozart just isn't the right guy to hit between them.
