News: Kozma will make the Opening Day roster, MLB.com's Jennifer Langosch reports.
Impact: Kozma's versatility makes up for his poor work with the bat, but given that he also doesn't offer much speed, he's of little use in even the deepest of leagues.

News: Kozma and outfielder Randall Grichuk will fill the Cardinals' final two bench spots on St. Louis' opening-day roster.
Impact: Manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday he liked Kozma's versatility. The shortstop has also played third, second, some outfield and even practiced catching this spring training. Though he's known more for his defense than his bat, Kozma began Tuesday with a .425 batting average.
Rotowire: Mar 30 / 8:20a ET
News: Kozma is viewed as the favorite for one of the final bench spots on the Opening Day 25-man roster, MLB.com reports.
Impact: Kozma has worked in the outfield and behind the plate as an emergency catcher this spring and his versatility should help him lock up one of the few open bench spots. His fantasy value, however, is still non-existent in virtually every league.
