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.

Cosart (13-9) surrendered both runs on sacrifice flies, one in the third inning and the other in the fourth. 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. 


Jarred Cosart blanks Braves


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.


Jarred Cosart wins number 10 Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart picked up his 10th win Tuesday against the Cardinals. 

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. Mark Ellis was responsible for two of the hits, while Jon Jay chipped in with the final knock in the seventh inning. The win brings Cosart to 10-8 on the season. He'll take on the Diamondbacks in his next outing.

Jarred Cosart takes the loss in Miami debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart took the loss in his Miami debut Friday night against the Reds, dropping to 9-8 on the year. The right-hander permitted four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over 5 1/3 innings of a 5-2 defeat.

Cosart has allowed four-plus runs in each of his last two starts. He owns a 4.51 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP over 21 starts (121 2/3 innings). His next start will come Thursday in Pittsburgh.

Jarred Cosart making Marlins debut Friday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Newly acquired pitcher Jarred Cosart will make his debut with the Marlins Friday, with his first start coming against the Reds. 

Cosart had a 4.41 ERA in 116 1/3 innings with the Astros before the Marlins acquired him Thursday.  


Move to Miami unlikely to give Jarred Cosart a big boost


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Marlins have slotted Jarred Cosart into Jacob Turner's slot in the rotation, meaning we will get out first view of how the team's newest pitcher adjusts to life at Marlins Park.

Cosart never really set the world on fire with the Astros, though he was better for most of the season than his 4.41 overall ERA might indicate. He entered the month of July riding a five-game quality start streak and sporting a 3.60 ERA though 16 starts, but was tagged for an 8.02 ERA in four July outings, while never finishing the sixth in any start.

The move to Miami could be a boon to Cosart's Fantasy value, as his extreme groundball tendencies should play even better in Miami. He allowed just 0.54 home runs per nine innings with the Astros as is, but is not moving from a park that ranks as one of the majors friendliest to power hitters to one that dampens power to an almost absurd degree.

Cosart should be helped by the move to Miami, but Fantasy owners probably shouldn't have too much interest until the hard-throwing righty can turn some of that velocity into strikeouts. Cosart moves into consideration for NL-only leagues with this move, but is probably not worth an addition in mixed leagues at this point. 


Marlins shuffle roster following loss to Reds


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) The Marlins announced several roster moves following Thursday's loss to Cincinnati. The team optioned Dan Jennings and Ed Lucas down to Triple-A New Orleans. The team will promote Jarred Cosart and Kike Hernandez. Cosart will make his season debut Friday night against the Reds.

Astros 'very, very busy' fielding calls about Jarred Cosart


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) The Astros are "very, very busy" fielding calls about starting pitcher Jarred Cosart, sources told FOX Sports.

If Cosart is traded, it will not be the first time he was dealt on or near the non-waiver trade deadline. Cosart was a key piece in the July 2011 trade that sent Hunter Pence to the Phillies in exchange for Cosart, Jon Singleton, Josh Zeid and a player to be named later, which eventually was Domingo Santana.
