FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: ZACK COZART TO BAT LEADOFF FOR REDS, BILLY HAMILTON EIGHTH?

The Cincinnati Reds will bat shortstop Zack Cozart out of the leadoff spot to begin the season while speedy outfielder Billy Hamilton is expected to bat eighth.  Hamilton has struggled this spring with injuries and he is not even a .250 hitter through two Major League seasons which necessitated the move. 

Analysis:  Hamilton's value takes a huge hit by this news and even if he were batting leadoff, he was just a one-category specialist with his extreme stolen base numbers.  Count on the steals to ebb back a bit as Hamilton will get fewer chances to run hitting so low and his already ugly average could even get worse.
