|Jarred Cosart gets the win in first Grapefruit League start |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/2/14) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart earned his first start of the spring and picked up the win Sunday afternoon against the Braves in Grapefruit League play.
Cosart retired his first two hitters before walking Justin Upton in the opening frame. He struck out one and tossed two hitless innings in a 7-4 victory.
|Jarred Cosart shut down Monday |

(9/10/13) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart has been shut down for the year following Monday's start.
Cosart finishes the year with a 1.94 ERA, and a 4.34 FIP, over 10 starts in the majors. He threw 153 innings between Triple-A and the majors. Cosart will likely open next season in the team's rotation.
|Jarred Cosart sharp in no-decision |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(9/10/13) Astros phenom Jarred Cosart made another start Monday in Seattle. After struggling his last time out, the young ace-in-the-making pitched extremely well in a no-decision.
Cosart allowed just one unearned run on two hits over five innings. Unfortunately, he walked six batters and that brought his pitch count up to 91 as he was pulled after five. He struck out three and lowered his ERA to 1.95.
Cosart lasted just four innings in his previous outing against Minnesota in a no-decision. That saw his ERA rise to 2.13. It is now below 2.00 again after his 10th career start. He just needs to keep the walks to a minimum. The 23-year-old Cosart, who entered the year as the No. 89 prospect, according to MLB.com, should make his next start Sunday against the Angels. That said, that date hasn't officially been scheduled.
|One look at Jarred Cosart's 1.95 ERA in 10 starts last year might lead you to believe he's as promising of a Fantasy asset as fellow sophomores Michael Wacha, Gerrit Cole and Sonny Gray. But while those three dominated across the board, Cosart's peripherals suggest he had a fair amount of luck. His walk and strikeout rates were both ghastly. If he had enough innings to qualify, the former would have ranked last among starting pitchers and the latter would have ranked third-to-last. Of course, his low hit rate, which helped him survive such poor peripherals, wasn't entirely fluky. He has exceptional stuff, which is why he was a top prospect coming into the year, but as was the case throughout his minor-league career, he hasn't learned to harness it just yet. Of course, none of his minor-league seasons were a disaster, so perhaps with a little more time, he would have finished with walk and strikeout rates more befitting of his talents. But the Astros shut him down in early September, not wanting him to reach 160 innings. Given 180 this year, Cosart could be poised for a big step forward, but judging by those peripherals, he could also be in for some growing pains. Take him in the late rounds and hope for the best.
