I'm just not convinced that Cozart's chances of being a serviceable big-league hitter outstrip Rojas's by a significant amount. At this point--as I implied in the original post--I'm still leaning toward Cozart. I just think that Rojas is in the photo.
    Rojas has a better contact rate, but Cozart will out HR him by 10+ HR. That makes up a solid difference between the two's strikeout rates/BABIP fluctuation as far as the average goes. Add in that Cozart is going to walk even more the small difference they have in average won't matter because Cozart is going to be getting on base more and certainly slugging a lot more.
