• Cozart was back in the lineup on Monday against ex-Reds pitcher Travis Wood. Cozart missed only one game after two fingers on his right hand were hit by a pitch while bunting. He went 0-for-4 with a walk in the 5-4 win.
"He was feeling pretty good yesterday," Baker said. "Plus, he doesn't want to miss his friend, Woody. When you don't play against your friends, they think you're ducking them. I know I could never sit out against [former Astros right-hander] J.R. [Richard]. My batting average would have been a lot higher if I did."
