|Jarred Cosart picks up win in mediocre outing Monday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/7/14) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart secured a win Monday despite giving up six runs (five earned) on nine hits and two walks in five innings and striking out two in his team's 12-7 victory over the Rangers.
Cosart (9-6) was given plenty of run support and needed it, with his only clean frame coming in the first inning. The outing included a solo home run, which was just his second home run allowd in his last 12 starts. The pitcher has recorded a decision in each of those 12 outings, going 8-4 during that stretch.
Cosart owns a 4.17 ERA and 67:43 K:BB ratio in 105 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Red Sox Sunday in his team's last game before the break.
|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.
