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. 


Marlins expect two injured SPs to return this week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Jarred Cosart (oblique) and Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) are on track to make their next starts, according to The Miami Herald.

Cosart has been cleared to start Tuesday against the Cardinals after throwing a bullpen session Saturday. Alvarez, who is scheduled to throw in the bullpen Sunday, is on track to return Thursday against Arizona.


Brian Flynn to start Thursday for injured Jarred Cosart


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Jarred Cosart was scratched from his Thursday start at Pittsburgh due to an oblique injury. Recent callup Brian Flynn will start in Cosart's absence Thursday.

Cosart is expected to rejoin the rotation Tuesday against the Cardinals.


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.

Jarred Cosart could make Miami debut Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Newly-acquired pitcher Jarred Cosart could make his debut with the Marlins as soon as Friday against Cincinnati, according to MLB.com. Cosart was traded from Houston to Miami just before the trade deadline. The right-hander is 9-7 with a 4.41 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 20 starts this season.

Marlins, Astros agree to six-player deal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The deal came through just before the deadline, and likely includes a compensation pick going Houston's way, according to MLB.com.

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.


Astros could be active at trade deadline


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart was stuck with a loss Saturday, giving up five earned runs on seven hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 7-3 defeat against the Marlins.

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.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

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.
