Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart picks up first win of the year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart allowed one run on four hits in six innings of work in Miami's 6-1 win over the Phillies Wednesday. Cosart was in control for much of his start, striking out four with no walks.

His only issues came in the second inning when he allowed a lead off home run to Cody Asche over the right field wall. Cosart needed just six pitches to send the rest of the Phillies hitters down in order in the second.

Cosart was initially drafted by the Phillies in 2008 but didn't make it to the majors before being traded to the Astros in 2011.

"It was my first game pitching here," Cosart said after the game, per the Associated Press. "The team that drafted you is pretty special. They gave me my first opportunity. I have no disrespect for any of them, but it's fun. I'm happy to be on a division rival right now. We're trying to beat everybody. It might be a little bit more special to get a win against the team that drafted you."

Cosart, now 1-1 on the year, boasts a 3.63 ERA in three starts. He will look to keep rolling Monday against the Mets.


Marlins' Jarred Cosart allows five runs vs. Mets Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart didn't factor into the decision Thursday, surrendering five earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 5 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 7-5 loss to the Mets.

Cosart blanked the Mets for four innings before serving up a three-run home run to shortstop Wilmer Flores in the fifth inning. The Mets then led off the sixth inning with a pair of hits, the second of which brought home a run, and were able to squeeze out another run on a one-out sacrifice fly to take the lead.

Cosart owns a 4.76 ERA and 6:4 K:BB ratio in 11 1/3 innings over his first two starts. He'll try and pick up his first win Wednesday against the Phillies in Philadelphia.


Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart allows just one run in losing effort


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart went six strong innings Saturday, allowing one run on three hits in Miami's 2-0 loss to the Rays.

Cosart also walked three and added one strikeout. He didn't allow a hit or baserunner until the fourth inning. He will look to earn his first win of the season Thursday against the Mets.


Marlins' Jarred Cosart gets past blister


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart said that the blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand has cleared up. 

Cosart has been bothered by blisters each of the last few seasons. 

"I usually get one a year," he said, per the Miami Herald. "It’s weird. The past three years, they’ve all been at different times. Last year I had it in the middle of the year, the year before didn’t happen until my last start and I think back in the minor leagues, it just varied. I was actually really happy it happened when it did in spring training, got it out of the way. Usually, knock on wood, it’s once a year. Hopefully it’s out of the way for the rest of the year."


Marlins SP Jarred Cosart remains on track for first start Saturday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Marlins starting pitcher Jarred Cosart threw 90 pitches in a simulated game Monday, according to The Palm Beach Post.

Cosart had his first start pushed back after missing a start late in spring training due to a blister on his hand. He is scheduled to make his season debut Saturday against the Rays.


MLB: Investigation shows Jared Cosart did not bet on baseball


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Major League Baseball completed its investigation into Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart's sports-related gambling ties and found no evidence that Cosart bet on baseball. Cosart will not be suspended, but received an undisclosed fine by the league for illegal betting on other sports.

Cosart released the following statement Friday:

"I have never, nor would I ever, bet on the great game of baseball. Major League Baseball conducted a thorough investigation, and I cooperated fully with them and their investigators throughout that process. I'm sorry for any distractions this may have caused the Marlins, my teammates, coaches, and our incredible fans. I'm glad to bring closure to this situation before Opening Day and I look forward to a great season."


Marlins change rotation plans to begin season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Prior to Wednesday's spring game against the Nationals, Marlins manager Mike Redmond indicated he was likely going to keep the rotation alignment of Henderson Alvarez, Jarred Cosart, Mat Latos, Tom Koehler and Dan Haren in place to open the season.

Well, even with Cosart throwing six scoreless innings Wednesday in his return from a blister on his throwing hand, Redmond still opted to tweak the rotation.

Alvarez will still start Opening Day against the Braves, but he will now be followed by Latos, Koehler, Haren and Cosart. The first three pitchers will face the Braves, while Haren and Cosart will pitch against the Rays.


Marlins SP Jarred Cosart: 'Never have, never will bet on baseball'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Marlins starting pitcher Jarred Cosart said Wednesday it is up to commissioner Rob Manfred to make a decision regarding the league's investigation into Cosart's alleged gambling ties, per FOX Sports Florida. He said he is hoping the investigation is done by Opening Day.

"Never have, never will bet on baseball," Cosart said.

Cosart allegedly exchanged multiple direct messages with a gambling authority on his Twitter account. Cosart deleted his official Twitter account after screen shots of the exchange hit the Internet.

It is unclear if Cosart's alleged gambling ties involve bets on baseball. MLB Rule 21 prohibits gambling on baseball.

"Any player, umpire, or club or league official or employee, who shall bet any sum whatsoever upon any baseball game in connection with which the bettor has no duty to perform, shall be declared ineligible for one year," the rule states. "Any player, umpire, or club or league official or employee, who shall bet any sum whatsoever upon any baseball game in connection with which the bettor has a duty to perform shall be declared permanently ineligible."

League spokesman Pat Courtney confirmed to ESPN last week that it is not against MLB rules for players to legally gamble on sports other than baseball.

Cosart, who was scratched from his previous start due to a blister on the middle finger on his right hand, made his final start of the spring Wednesday against the Nationals. He tossed six scoreless innings, allowing one hit and three walks. He struck out four.

Cosart, who finishes the spring with a 5.60 ERA, was originally scheduled to start the second game of the season, but has now been pushed back to the fifth game. He will pitch in a simulated game Monday.


Marlins' Redmond not expecting rotation order to change


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Wednesday he is anticipating the rotation order to remain the same, per The Miami Herald. Henderson Alvarez will start Opening Day, and he will be followed by Jarred Cosart, Mat Latos, Tom Koehler and Dan Haren.

"(Wednesday) with Cosart throwing it's another big step, making sure his [blistered middle] finger gets through the grind of a game healthy," Redmond said. "I'm anticipating if everything stays fine with him this [order in the rotation] pretty much is what it is. But we'll know more after he goes out and pitches. I'm anticipating him being fine."


Marlins' Jarred Cosart set to return to mound Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Marlins starting pitcher Jarred Cosart is scheduled to start Wednesday's spring game against the Nationals, according to The Palm Beach Post. He threw a bullpen session Sunday after being scratched from his last spring start due to a blister on the middle finger on his right hand.

Cosart is 0-2 with am 8.49 ERA in four spring starts.


Cosart scratched from start, caught off guard by betting situation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Marlins starting pitcher Jarred Cosart briefly met with the media Thursday to talk about Major League Baseball investigating potential sports-related gambling ties. However, Cosart didn't have any shocking revelations.

Cosart told reporters he is following protocol as the investigation is ongoing, per MLB.com. Cosart said he was "caught off guard" by the situation, per ESPN.

The Miami New Times reported Wednesday that Cosart deleted his official Twitter handle Tuesday night after screenshots of an alleged private conversation between Cosart and a gambling authority surfaced via social media.

Per MLB rules, players can legally bet on sports outside of baseball. However, Cosart could be banned for one year, if he is found guilty of betting on baseball, per MLB Rule 21. Marlins spokesman Matt Roebuck confirmed Wednesday the league was investigating the matter.

"Major League baseball is aware and they are investigating it and we have no further comment at this time," Roebuck said, per the Miami Herald.

In baseball news, Cosart was scratched from his scheduled spring start Friday against the Astros due to a blister on his hand, per MLB.com. Cosart is scheduled to open the season as part of the Marlins' rotation.


Report: MLB investigating gambling allegations tied to Marlins' Cosart


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Major League Baseball is investigating whether Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart had any sports-related gambling ties, ESPN reports on Wednesday. The Miami New Times first reported that Cosart deleted his official Twitter handle Tuesday night after screenshots of an alleged private conversation between Cosart and a gambling authority surfaced via social media.

Marlins spokesman Matt Roebuck confirmed that MLB is investigating the matter, but declined to comment on the issue.

"Major League baseball is aware and they are investigating it and we have no further comment at this time," Roebuck said, per the Miami Herald.

Per MLB rules, players can legally bet on sports outside of baseball. Per MLB Rule 21, Cosart could be banned for one year if he is found guilty of betting on baseball.

"Any player, umpire, or club or league official or employee, who shall bet any sum whatsoever upon any baseball game in connection with which the bettor has no duty to perform, shall be declared ineligible for one year," the rule states. "Any player, umpire, or club or league official or employee, who shall bet any sum whatsoever upon any baseball game in connection with which the bettor has a duty to perform shall be declared permanently ineligible."

Cosart, 24, was acquired by the Marlins at the trade deadline last season. He is 14-12 with a 3.26 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP and 148:108 K:BB ratio over 240 1/3 innings in his only two seasons in the majors.


Marlins' rotation likely set, Henderson Alvarez likely to pitch opener


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Marlins manager Mike Redmond strongly indicated Monday that the team's rotation is set, and though he did not make a formal announcement, Henderson Alvarez is expected to pitch Opening Day, MLB.com reports.

Alvarez will likely be followed in order by Jarred Cosart, Mat Latos, Dan Haren and Tom Koehler.

"I'd say we're probably set with those five guys, but I would never say 100 percent that we're set, because you never know what will happen," Redmond said.

Alvarez, Cosart and Koehler have struggled this spring while Haren and Latos have pitched well, but Redmond indicated he's not overly concerned with spring numbers.

"Part of spring training is not only building up your arm strength and your pitches," Redmond said, "it's working on things you're trying to sharpen up, whether it be Cosart working on his changeup, or guys working on secondary pitches they're trying to lock in for the season. I don't get overly excited about spring training outings. I look more at how they're executing pitches, whether they are keeping the ball down. We've missed up in the zone probably more than we have all spring, the last couple of starts for guys."


Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart struggles in start Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2015) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart was a bit erratic in his start Sunday against the Twins. Cosart surrendered four runs in his first two innings. He added four walks to go with just two strikeouts in his outing.

"I can't be doing this my last start of spring training, basically," Cosart said to MLB.com. "Each one, I have to make some progression."


Marlins P Jarred Cosart toys with changeup in Thursday's start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart used Thursday's Grapefruit League start to work his changeup, according to the Miami Herald. He allowed three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out two over two innings of work.

"I got two swings and misses and then [gave up a] ground ball hit," Cosart said. "I threw one for a strike to [Twins center fielder Aaron] Hicks on the first pitch.

"It's going to be a huge pitch for me when we're getting in late in-game situations, sixth, seventh inning. If I get into a 2-0 count I can throw one for a strike and then get a groundball for an out. I'm really happy with the progress."


Jarred Cosart has control issues in final start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart had a tough time with his control Friday against the Nationals.

Cosart allowed three runs, two earned, on four hits over five innings. He struck out three and walked eight during the outing. Cosart got himself in trouble early. After getting a quick out to open the game, he allowed a solo home run against Anthony Rendon. Another run would score in the inning after a passed ball. That ball was unearned.

Cosart gave up his final run in the fifth inning. After giving up two walks earlier in the inning, Cosart allowed a run-scoring single against Asdrubal Cabrera. Cosart dropped to 13-11 following the performance. 


Jarred Cosart loses despite quality start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart turned in a quality start Saturday against the Nationals.

Cosart allowed three runs on nine hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked two during the outing. Cosart proved to be somewhat hittable during the appearance, but managed to keep the Nationals off the board until his final inning. After a single and two run-scoring triples, Cosart was pulled from the game. Another run would come around to score, and was charged to Cosart.

With the loss, Cosart dropped to 13-10. He’ll take on the Nationals in his next start. 


Jarred Cosart only getting better


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/16/2014) In general baseball terms, Jarred Cosart has been nothing short of terrific since coming over to the Marlins from the Astros at the July 31 trade deadline, compiling a 2.05 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in eight starts.

Of course, some Fantasy owners, myself among them, are skeptical of any sort of breakout that comes without even a respectable strikeout rate. And for the majority of that stretch, Cosart's was lacking.

But in his last four starts -- granted, two against the free-swinging Braves -- he has averaged 7.8 strikeouts per nine innings. That's respectable.

It doesn't count for much on its own -- four starts is a small sample no matter how you look at it -- but it at least shows that those two- and three-strikeout efforts we saw from Cosart in his first three starts with the Marlins aren't the new norm for him. What is the norm is an improved walk rate. He has yet to issue more than two walks in eight starts since the trade, averaging 2.1 walks per nine innings.

He's one of several players I discuss in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, so for more, give it a look.


Jarred Cosart unable to factor into decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart wasn't a factor into the decision Monday night in New York against the Mets. He allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings of a 6-5 victory.

Cosart has allowed two earned runs or fewer in all but two of his first six starts with the Marlins. He owns a 3.67 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP over 28 starts (169 innings). His next start will come Saturday at home against Washington.

Jarred Cosart strikes out seven in loss vs. Brewers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart took a loss Wednesday, giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks in six innings while striking out seven in his team's 4-1 defeat against the Brewers.

He's managed to turn in six straight quality starts after giving up four runs in his Marlins debut. Cosart owns a 3.70 ERA and 105:61 K:BB ratio in 163 innings, but he's posted a 1.93 ERA since coming to Miami. He's in line to face the Mets next week, though the team has yet to announce its rotation plans.


Jarred Cosart impresses again in fourth straight win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart tossed the ball well yet again Friday against the Braves, as he won his fourth decision in a row, 11-3.  

Cosart pitched into the eighth inning, and the Braves didn't really get to him until his final frame. He allowed three runs, two in the eighth, while scattering five hits and a walk in 7 2/3 innings of work. He also struck out six batters in the outing, his highest total since joining the Marlins at the trade deadline.

Cosart is 4-1 with a 1.99 ERA since joining the Marlins, while posting a 13-8 record and 3.78 ERA for the season as a whole. He will try to keep the good times rolling in his next outing, set for Wednesday in Milwaukee.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2014) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart put together another terrific outing for the win Saturday in Atlanta, improving to 12-8 on the season. He permitted seven hits and one walk while striking out five over seven shutout innings of a 4-0 victory.

Over his last four starts covering 27 2/3 innings, Cosart has allowed only two earned runs. He owns a 3.80 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP over 25 starts (149 1/3 innings). His next start will come Friday at home against Atlanta again.

Jarred Cosart allows one run in win vs. Angels


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart earned a win Monday, giving up one earned run on seven hits and one walk in 7 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 7-1 victory over the Angels.

Cosart (11-8) delivered seven scoreless innings before the Angels led off the eighth inning with a single and a double to plate a run. It was the third straight excellent start for the former Astro, who's given up only two earned runs in 20 2/3 innings over that stretch. Cosart owns a 3.98 ERA and 87:57 K:BB ratio in 142 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Braves Sunday.


Jarred Cosart tosses six one-run innings vs. Rangers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one earned run on six hits and two walks in six innings and striking out two in his team's 4-3, extra-innings win over the Rangers.

Cosart followed up seven scoreless innings in his previous start with another good one Tuesday. He fell behind when a run on a fielder's choice in the fourth inning made it 1-0, but the offense handed him a lead by the time he exited. The bullpen then gave the lead back once the starter departed. Cosart owns a 4.14 ERA and 83:56 K:BB ratio in 134 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Angels Monday.

Cosart tossed seven scoreless innings during the outing. He struck out three and walked one. Cosart allowed just three hits over the course of the start.
