Cozart (knee) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Cozart missed most of the month of September with a knee problem, but with the season now complete and a few 40-man roster spots open, the Reds opted to activate the 31-year-old. He'll likely be in line to start at shortstop in 2017 once his knee heals over the offseason, although it remains to be seen if that will be in Cincinnati or with some other team.

The Reds transferred Cozart (knee) to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Cozart had an outside shot to play before the regular season ended, but his move to the 60-day DL means he will not play again until 2017. He hit a career-high 16 home runs this season and posted a .733 OPS, so he figures to head into next year as a regular shortstop. Whether that is for the Reds remains to be seen, however, as he could bring prospects on the trade market to a Cincinnati team that may be looking at another rebuilding season.

The Reds placed Cozart (knee) on the disabled list Monday, retroactive to Sept. 16.

EDGE Analysis

Cozart's placement on the disabled list all but ensures he will not return this season, as he is now only eligible to play in the Reds' final two games this weekend. He will be a trade candidate this offseason after posting a .733 OPS and hitting a career-high 16 home runs in 2016. With Cozart on the disabled list, Jose Peraza is set to finish out the season as the Reds' primary shortstop.

Cozart (knee) now seems highly unlikely to return this season, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's no reason for the Reds to risk re-injury to bring him back for meaningless September games. If he's on the trade block as expected this offseason, showcasing him at anything less than 100 percent won't help their trade chances.

Cozart (knee) is not with the team in Chicago, but has not been ruled out for the season, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cozart is spending some time back in Cincinnati rehabbing his injured knee, but his situation is being compared to that of Billy Hamilton (oblique): shut down for the time being, but not completely ruled out for the year. It's unclear what the exact timetable for Cozart's return is, but that may become clearer as he moves along in his rehab process.

Cozart (knee) remains out of the lineup Monday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Cozart's knee seems to still be giving him problems, so the 31-year-old will end up missing his ninth game in a row. Jose Peraza will take over at shortstop for the evening, although Peraza and Ivan De Jesus could see some more starts if Cozart's knee doesn't improve soon.
