Zack Cozart won’t play in any games for the next few weeks, per multiple sources, including Maria Torres of the LA Times:

Recall that Cozart missed the bulk of last season after falling awkwardly on his left shoulder. A shortstop for most of his career, Cozart probably hasn’t had the game experience to be comfortable with another position yet. As a result, the Angels may take it slower with him, considering that David Fletcher, Taylor Ward, Luis Rengifo, and Tommy La Stella are options around the infield.

Cozart slashed .219/.296/.362 last year.

Let the games begin!
