Shortstop Zach Cozart is creeping up the OPS ladder. He's now sporting a .481 SLG, boosint his OPS to .805. Nothing to write home about, but he's tearing the cover off the ball lately. He has 9 hits in the past 6 games, including 3 home runs and 3 doubles. He was our 2nd-round pick out of Mississippi last season and is rated the Reds' No. 18 prospect by Baseball America. Cozart is 22.

Triple-A: Josh Fogg threw his first rehab game for Louisville, going a complete game and allowing 10 hits in a 4-1 loss. Fogg struck out 6.

Zach Stewart -- our 3rd-round pick in the draft this year -- allowed his first hit as a pro but went 2 scoreless innings for his first win. Brandon Waring extended his hitting streak to 12 games.

Rookie: Neftali Soto was 0 for 4 in Billings' 5-4 loss. ... Shea Showden allowed just 1 hit in 6 innings in the GCL Reds' 9-3 win. He's 2-0. ...  Juan Duran was 2 for 4 with a double in the D-Reds' 6-3 win. And put 20-year-old Juan Aquino on prospect watch. He struck out 8 with no walks in 6 innings to improve to 3-0. He's struck out 29 and walked 2 in 20 innings this season for a 1.35 ERA. Maybe it's time for a trip to the States?
