Cozart is not in Saturday's lineup against the Cubs, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cozart has dealt with quadriceps issues for much of the season, so it is not surprising for him to not play in back-to-back contests as the Reds play out the string. Jose Peraza is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh.

Cozart (quadriceps) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Cubs, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cozart left Wednesday's contest with quad tightness, and was subsequently held out of the lineup Thursday while recovering from the setback. He appears good to go for the final series of the 2017 season, as he will be back at shortstop and batting second in the order for Friday's matinee.

Cozart (quad) said he expects to play Friday against the Cubs after sitting out Thursday's series finale against the Brewers, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Cozart was removed from Wednesday's game against the Brewers with tightness in his right quad, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cozart was 0-for-1 with a walk and a run scored before being replaced by Jose Peraza in the third inning. The severity of the injury isn't clear at this point, but more will likely be known once he is reevaluated Thursday. Given how late it is in the season, there's a possibility Cozart may not play again.

Cozart went 2-for-5 with a home run, a steal and two RBI against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

He's now gone yard five times in his last seven games, a span in which Cozart has also racked up nine RBI and eight runs. The veteran shortstop's age-31 campaign has seen him break out to a never-before-seen degree, as he's in the midst of setting new personal bests across the board -- average, homers, RBI, runs, OPS, you name it.

Cozart went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Tuesday in St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Cozart homered off Lance Lynn in his first at-bat to reach 20 long balls for the first time in his career. The 32-year-old shortstop has taken his offensive game to a new level this year, making a well deserved trip to the All-Star Game while obliterating his .254/.305/.408 career line with a .304/.396/.553 output.

Cozart went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and an RBI single Sunday during the Reds' 10-5 win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

After a run-scoring knock in the first, Cozy took Josh Smoker over the left-field fence with runners on first and third in the seventh frame for his 19th big fly of the season. That's his new career best, along with all three pieces of his .302/.395/.541 triple slash. Cozart looks primed to finish his breakout season strong.

Cozart is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The Reds continue to sit Cozart every few days to prevent against any sort of setback with his quad -- he's made two trips to the DL this summer due to quad injuries. This plan also allows the team to keep Jose Peraza involved in the middle infield. Look for Cozart to be available off the bench and back in the lineup Saturday against right-hander Chris Flexen.
