Angels sign Zack Cozart — MLB free agency

Angels sign Zack Cozart — MLB free agency

The Los Angeles Angels agreed to terms with free agent infielder Zack Cozart on a three-year contract, the team announced Friday.

That was fine with Cozart, even though he has never played third or second in the majors.

Cozart will likely play third base for the Angels, as Andrelton Simmons-the Angels everyday shortstop last season-is one of the best defensive players in all of baseball. It shouldn't be a tough adjustment, he said.

"It's just going to be a fun team to be around", Cozart said. When I found out we could get Ian, I was shocked. "But at the end of the day, I want to win".

Right now, judging this signing before he's played a single inning for the Angels and (probably) before they've finished making moves this offseason (find more pitching!) this looks like a good deal.

After three consecutive years of mediocrity, the Angels have made clear since the offseason began that the status quo wasn't enough. Peraza will make $540,000 next year and isn't eligible for free agency until at least 2023. Eppler has filled both spots impressively by trading for Kinsler after retaining late-season acquisition Upton last month with a $106 million, five-year deal.

Cozart had his best offensive season in 2017, posting a.297/.385/.548 (batting average/on-base percentage/slugging percentage) line with 24 home runs and 63 RBI, while also earning his first All-Star nod.

Zack Cozart #2 of the Cincinnati Reds fields a ground ball during the seventh inning of a game against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park on September 26, 2017 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Taken by Cincinnati in the second round of the 2007 MLB Draft, he made his way up the minor league ranks over the first four seasons of his career, finally reaching the Triple-A level with the Louisville Bats in 2010.
