Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 40 | Power: 60 | Run: 45 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 45

The Phillies knew when they took Cozens and his pure athleticism in the second round of the 2012 Draft out of the Arizona high school ranks that it might take a while for the former two-sport star's baseball skills - he was also a football player who had Division I potential - to sharpen. It looked like they were starting to with a huge 2016 season in Double-A Reading's friendly ballpark, but while he still hit for power in the move to Triple-A in 2017, much of the rest of his offensive game went in the wrong direction.

There are few players, if any, in the Minors with more raw power than the 6-foot-6 Cozens. He could easily miss-hit 20 homers a year at any level, in any ballpark. What got him into trouble in 2017 was that he was trying to hit 20 homers in a month which, in turn, led to a Minors-leading strikeout total. There will always be swing-and-miss to his game, but for him to have a chance, he'll have to get back to focusing on being a more complete hitter.

Cozens runs better than you'd think given his size, has 20 or more steals in three seasons and has worked hard to become a solid corner outfielder. If he can get back to being that kind of more complete player, the power will take care of itself.
