Cozart injured his left shoulder while making a diving catch on June 13, which forced him to leave the game. He was placed on the disabled list and has been out since then. Cozart went for a second opinion on his shoulder, which is when the surgery recommendation was made.
Cozart was a big free agent signing by the Angels over the offseason. He was signed to a three-year, $38 million deal and asked to move from shortstop to third base. He was batting .219/.296/.362 in 58 games with his new team. Luis Valbuena has been seeing action at third with Cozart out.
