Angels sign Cozart to 3-year deal

308 posts in this topic

Wow!  3 years sounds like a lot, but it's expected.  He will definitely confer flexibility.  I'm guessing he's our starting 3B this year, then starting 2B the next two years thereafter.  He will be able to backup Simmons too when he needs days off.  

I know this isn't the most exciting signing, but he does play a significant role for us in that he fills a hole (3B) AND provides insurance for the middle infield too.  Strong move, and another indication of our "defense first" priorities, as we opted to go for him over Moose.

3 years? Ehhhhhh. 

Want to know how much before I give a full opinion.

Yeah, agreed.  I'm pretty "meh" about him overall unless he can come reasonably close to what he did last year offensively.

Solid pick up my only 2 concerns are 1 2017 was his only really good season being a contract a year that he improves, 2 That he isn't a product of the great Hitters park.

I don’t know much about this guy. It doesn’t break the bank much but he did have a career year by a huge margin on a contract year. MLB strikes again.
