Well, the big question will be about staying healthy.

I really don't get the Giants signing Cozart.  They have the too expensive to move Crawford at SS for the next couple years ... the too expensive to move Longoria at 3B  for the next 4 years ... and now the more expensive than you'd have needed to pay as a FA Cozart, presumably to play 2B?

Granted, Solano probably played over his head last year.  But the Giants have Dubon and Avelino knocking at the door, and let's face it - it's going to be hard for this club to have any shot at contending in 2020.

Now on the Giants via trade. Here's hoping that a return to the NL will do something. He peaked at the right time to get paid, now if he can do it again.

Which is...

Zack Cozart (3B) ANA - Mar. 5

Cozart was diagnosed Tuesday with a Grade 1 calf strain, which is expected to sideline him for a few weeks, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Cozart's injury had originally been described as tightness, but it turns out the issue is more significant and will force him to miss more time than expected. The somewhat vague timeline puts his return date right around Opening Day, though it may be unlikely for him to be available at that time without at least a minor-league rehab stint beforehand. A cautious approach could be wise for the Angels, as Cozart was limited by injuries to just 58 appearances last year, though that was due to an entirely unrelated torn labrum in his shoulder. If Cozart does miss time to start the year, Taylor Ward, Tommy La Stella or Kaleb Cowart could benefit.

Brett Sayre has his LABR AL auction recap up at BP for free.  Was really high on Cozart going in, but that was before the injury news.
