by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2014) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart is set for his Sunday start, according to the Houston Chronicle

Jarred Cosart expects to top out at 190 innings


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Astros starting pitcher Jarred Cosart said he expects to top out at 190 innings this season, according to MLB.com. He indicated the team would increase his innings by 20 percent after he totaled 153 innings between the majors and minors last season.

Astros set second-half rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) The Astros have set their rotation following the All-Star break, at least through the first two series.

Manager Bo Porter announced that Scott Feldman, Dallas Keuchel and Jarred Cosart will open the second half in a weekend series against the White Sox, and will be followed by Collin McHugh and Brad Peacock to open a series in Oakland beginning Tuesday. 


Jarred Cosart picks up win in mediocre outing Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) 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.


Jarred Cosart hit hard as winning streak ends


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart's winning streak came to an inglorious end Tuesday, in a 13-2 loss to the Mariners.

Cosart, who had win his previous four starts and had five quality starts in a row leading to Tuesday, struggled mightily from the start. The Mariners jumped on him for three runs in the first two innings and six overall in 5 2/3 innings. He was tagged for nine hits and four walks, while striking out just three batters on 110 pitches in the loss.

Cosart falls to 8-5 with the loss, while his ERA jumped all the way to 3.93 in 100 2/3 innings. His next start is set for Sunday against the Angels. 


Jarred Cosart not quite mixed-league worthy yet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/27/2014) No one would question Jarred Cosart's effectiveness over his last six starts. During that stretch, he has a 2.50 ERA and 1.18 -- respectable numbers by anyone's standard.

But while he recorded eight strikeouts in two of those starts, he recorded no more than two in the other four, verifying what we already suspect from his time in the majors last year: He's not a strikeout pitcher, at least not at this stage of his career.

What he is is a ground-ball pitcher -- an extreme one, ranking seventh among all starting pitchers in ground-ball percentage. As Kyle Gibson (fifth) and Henderson Alvarez (12th) have demonstrated this year, those types can be pretty effective in Fantasy even without the strikeouts.

Of course, as Gibson and Alvarez have also demonstrated this year, those types can be at times untrustworthy, their pitch-to-contact approach making them susceptible to bad luck. When an unusually high number of those ground balls get through the infield, chaos ensues.

Cosart doesn't control the strike zone the way Gibson and Alvarez do -- his 3.5 walks per nine innings ranking 77th among the 93 qualifying pitchers -- so when chaos ensues for him, it'll be especially damaging.

I'm passing on him in mixed leagues for now.


Jarred Cosart overcomes rocky start to win again


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2014) Astros starter Jarred Cosart appeared to be in trouble when he allowed two hits and a sacrifice fly to the first three hitters he faced Thursday against Atlanta. But he followed by inducing a double play and it was smooth sailing the rest of the way as he cruised to his seventh victory.

Cosart worked out of a few jams to pitch shutout ball over the last six innings. He finished having yielded one run on six hits in seven innings with two walks and two strikeouts. Cosart has given up just one run in his last 15 innings.

He will try to keep up the good work Tuesday against Seattle.


Jarred Cosart wins with eight shutout innings


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart tossed arguably his finest start of the season Friday, in a 3-1 win over the Rays.

Cosart extended his winning streak to three games thanks to eight shutout innings. Though he struck out just two batters, he induced 13 of his 24 outs via the ground ball, while allowing six hits and a walk in the win.

Cosart improved his record to 7-5 with the win, while lowering his ERA to 3.78, the first time it has been below 4.00 since his first start. His next start is set for Thursday against the Braves.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jarred Cosart a tough-luck loser vs. Angels


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2014) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart twirled a quality start Wednesday, but had nothing but a loss to show for it, as he fell 4-0 to the Angels.

Cosart allowed just three runs in six-plus innings, but had no chance to win with how Garrett Richards was throwing the ball. Cosart allowed his three runs on eight hits and a walk in 6 2/3 innings of work, while matching a season-high with eight strikeouts on 108 pitches.

Cosart took the loss to drop his record to 4-5, after he spent just one start at .500. He carries a 4.16 ERA in 67 innings of work into his next outing, set for Monday in Arizona.  


Jarred Cosart good enough to finish off sweep of Royals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Astros starter Jarred Cosart needed 95 pitches to get through five innings Wednesday in Kansas City, but he performed well enough to key the completion of a surprising sweep.

Cosart gave up four hits and one earned run to the struggling Royals. He was touched only by successive doubles off the bats of Eric Hosmer and Alcides Escobar in the fourth inning. He walked two, fanned one and lowered his ERA to 4.18. He has yielded just 14 earned runs in his last 42 innings covering seven starts.

His next outing is slated for Tuesday against the visiting Angels.


Astros make some tweaks to starting rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) The Astros made some changes to the rotation following Friday's loss to the Mariners in Seattle, according to the Houston Chronicle.

The team recalled pitcher Brett Oberholtzer from Triple-A Oklahoma City, who will take the hill Saturday against Seattle. The rest of the rotation will be pushed back one day, giving the other starters normal rest. Dallas Keuchel will start Sunday while Scott Feldman will start Memorial Day Monday against Kansas City, followed by Collin McHugh and Jarred Cosart.

Late struggles cost Jarred Cosart in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) Astros starting pitcher Jarred Cosart pitched well Thursday against the Mariners, but took a loss despite his quality start.  

Cosart reached the seventh inning having allowed just one run, but ran out of steam. He loaded the bases with no out, and was pulled from the game after recording the first out, with the game still tied at 1-1.

Cosart had a bit of bad luck go against him, as two of his inherited runners came around to score when reliever Tony Sipp allowed an infield single with two out. Cosart was charged with three runs in 6 1/3 innings of work, on five hits and four walks, while striking out six batters.

Cosart took the loss as the Astros fell, 3-1, dropping his record to 4-3 on the season. He carries a 4.39 ERA into his next start, set for Tuesday in Kansas City. 


Jarred Cosart lasts only five innings in win over White Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart lasted five innings and picked up his third win of the season Saturday afternoon at home against the White Sox. He surrendered three runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out two in 101 pitches, 59 for strikes.

Jarred Cosart to add one-seam fastball to repertoire Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart will unveil a one-seam fastball Saturday against the White Sox, according to MLB.com. The idea for the new addition to his repertoire came from pitching coach Brent Strom.

"The two-seam [fastball] is just going to have more horizontal movement, but the one-seam I'm getting more downward action, almost like my changeup but harder," Cosart said. "Probably like 90, 91, 89 [mph], somewhere in that range."

Jarred Cosart posts fourth straight quality start in win over O's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart stayed sharp on Sunday with a quality start, earning his second win of the season in a 5-2 victory over the Orioles in Baltimore.

Cosart will make his next start Saturday at home against the White Sox. He is 1-1 with a 3.71 ERA in three starts at home this season.

Jarred Cosart trending the wrong way


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/6/2014) With a strong performance against the Tigers Monday, limiting them to just one unearned run in seven innings, Jarred Cosart now has three straight quality starts. He has a 1.83 ERA during that stretch, allowing just 13 hits in 19 2/3 innings. The only problem is he's recorded just 13 strikeouts while issuing eight walks.

That's a poor ratio. Granted, it's not as bad as the near 1-to-1 ratio he put together in 10 starts last year, but it's along the same lines. And considering he remade his delivery this spring in an effort to correct it, it's a discouraging development.

Now, some may conclude it's overrated. Not only did Cosart perform well in those last three starts, but he had a 1.95 ERA in last year's 10. But the pitchers who thrive with even a 2-to-1 ratio are few and far between. Travis Wood's isn't even that bad, and he still has his share of skeptics.

Cosart still has good stuff and isn't exactly useless in Fantasy with what he's doing right now, but as starting pitchers go, he's still relatively low-end. I rank him just outside my top 100.


Jarred Cosart takes hard luck loss Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2014) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart was stuck with a loss after surrendering just one unearned run on four hits and three walks in seven innings while striking out three in his team's 2-0 loss to the Tigers Monday.

Cosart (1-3) held the Tigers scoreless through six innings, but his defense opened up the seventh with an error, and that leadoff hitter would come around to score on a walk, sacrifice and single. Cosart owns a 4.50 ERA and 28:18 K:BB ratio in 38 innings. He's scheduled to face the Orioles in Baltimore Saturday.


Jarred Cosart gets little help in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart twirled his second quality start in a row with nothing to show for it in a 4-3 loss to the Nationals.

Cosart was actually in line to win despite allowing two early runs, as that was all he surrendered to the Nationals in the game. He allowed two runs on five hits and a pair of walks in six innings of work, while striking out six batters.

Cosart is off to a tough start, with a 1-2 record and 5.52 ERA despite his recent turnaround. He will look to keep it up and get back to .500 in his next outing, set for Monday in Detroit. 


Jarred Cosart bounces back with two-run outing Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart allowed just two earned runs on four hits and three walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out four to pick up a win in his team's 5-3 loss to the Mariners Wednesday.

Cosart cruised through the first six innings of Wednesday's win before giving up a two-run home run in the seventh. He rebounded to record an out to the next batter but was removed after that.  He was in line for the win before Josh Fields surrendered a walkoff three-run home run with one out in the ninth.

Cosart owns a 6.12 ERA and 19:13 K:BB ratio in 25 innings. He's up against the Nationals at home Tuesday.


Jarred Cosart fails to make it out of opening frame in abysmal outing


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Astros starting pitcher Jarred Cosart's night was done almost before it even started on Friday, as he recorded just one out in an 11-3 defeat to the A's.

Cosart (1-2) surrendered a two-run single to Yoenis Cespedes, a three-run home run to Alberto Callaspo and a two-run home run Josh Reddick before he was pulled for Paul Clemens in the opening frame. Cosart took the loss, only lasting one-third of an inning and allowing seven runs on three hits and four walks.

Cosart saw his ERA go from 4.00 to 7.36 after Friday's abysmal outing. He'll look to get back on track when he takes the hill Wednesday at Seattle.

Work on control paying off for Jarred Cosart


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) The only unimpressive number compiled by Astros flamethrower Jarred Cosart in 2013 was 35 walks in 60 innings, which he overcame to register a 1.95 ERA. But considering he struck out just 33, he understood entering this season that he needed to improve his control.

Mission accomplished - at least so far. Cosart has six walks and 15 strikeouts in 18 innings in 2014. He walked two and fanned eight to help his team defeat Texas in his last start.

"Last year, the walks were too high and the strikeouts were too low," he told MLB.com. "Like I told everyone from the beginning, it was something I really worked on during spring training ... and it has been paying off."

Cosart is 1-1 with a 1.056 WHIP and 4.00 ERA this year.


Jarred Cosart denied win in solid start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) Astros starting pitcher Jarred Cosart tossed his first quality start of the season Saturday, though he settled for a no-decision in a 6-5 win over the Rangers.

Cosart tossed seven solid innings, allowing three runs on six hits. He also walked two batters and struck out eight, while throwing 74 of 113 pitches for strikes. He left the game with a 5-3 lead, but the bullpen could not hang on.

Cosart is 1-1 with a 4.00 ERA in three starts, with his next one set for Friday against the Athletics.
