Some rumors have been floating around this morning that Zack Cozart is being activated to the roster for tonight’s Reds-Brewers game. His AAA slash line is .310/.357/.467.
Recent tweets seem to provide more conclusive evidence that these rumors are true. The Enquirer’s John Fay posted earlier this morning:
A Zack Cozart is registered at #Reds team hotel. Could be ad odd coincidence, I suppose. #reds
And more recently, we heard from Yonder Alonso:
Congrats To my friend an teammate Cozart got the call up!!!
No mentions, yet, of who he is replacing on the roster.
UPDATE: The Reds made two roster moves this afternoon. Zack Cozart and Carlos Fisher have been promoted to the active roster. Paul Janish and Edinson Volquez have been optioned to AAA. If Dontrelle Willis doesn’t pitch in AAA the next few days, he likely gets the start on Sunday.
