Jarred Cosart struck out two and walked one over one scoreless inning of work in his Cactus League debut against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Cosart underwent elbow surgery to remove loose bodies in his pitching arm back in October. After a winter of rehab, he looked no worse for the wear in his debut on Saturday. He could crack the starting rotation should injuries befell the Padres' staff, but given that he posted a 6.00 ERA in 13 starts between the Marlins and Padres last season, he is going to need a strong spring if he wants a realistic shot.
Mar 4 - 6:44 PM

The Padres announced Saturday that Jarred Cosart underwent successful surgery to remove loose bodies from his pitching elbow.

The bone spur in his elbow caused Cosart to miss his final two starts of the regular season. He'll be sidelined for the next six weeks before he's able to resume throwing. The club believes that he'll be fully recovered and ready to go for the start of spring training.

Padres manager Andy Green announced Friday that Jarred Cosart will undergo surgery next week to remove loose bodies from his elbow.

The right-hander had his 2016 campaign cut short due to inflammation caused by the bone spur in his pitching elbow. It's just a cleanup procedure, so Cosart should still be able to have a fairly normal offseason and should be fully healthy and ready to roll for spring training.

Jarred Cosart (elbow) will visit with a specialist on Tuesday.

Cosart is dealing with inflammation and what the Padres believe is a bone spur in his pitching elbow. It's possible he'll opt to have surgery to get it removed, although we should know more after Tuesday's exam. Cosart posted a 6.00 ERA over 13 starts this season.

Jarred Cosart has undergone an MRI and X-ray on his right elbow.

Cosart exited Saturday's start versus the Giants with what the Padres think is a bone spur in the righty's elbow. He's almost surely done for the season. Cosart holds an ugly 6.00 ERA over 13 starts this season.

Jarred Cosart (elbow) left Saturday's game against the Giants with right elbow inflammation.

He didn't look right from the start, allowing three hits, two walks and three earned runs before exiting with two outs in the first inning. Only 13 of his 28 pitches went for strikes. With only a week left in the regular season, it's likely that Cosart has thrown his final pitch of 2016. The right-hander is winless in 13 starts with a 6.04 ERA.

Jarred Cosart was hit hard in a losing effort against the Rockies at Coors Field on Sunday, allowing five runs on five hits in 3 2/3 innings.

The right-hander walked four and struck out four in the ballgame. He navigated through the first three innings without any difficulty, but the Rockies broke through with five runs in the fourth to chase him, including a two-run homer by Mark Reynolds. Cosart will continue to take his turn in the rotation despite a very disappointing 5.63 ERA and 1.70 WHIP. He should be ignored for Saturday's start against the Giants.

Jarred Cosart (hamstring, groin) is expected to only miss one start.

It looked like Cosart's season might be over when he suffered groin and hamstring strains Wednesday against Boston, but now he could be back within the week. Cosart hasn't done much to inspire confidence this year, but he's done enough to at least maintain a rotation spot as the Padres look to rebuild following a series of high-profile trades.

Jarred Cosart (hamstring, groin) admitted Thursday that he's "unlikely" to make his next scheduled start.

Cosart suffered a strained right hamstring and a strained right groin on a play at first base during Wednesday's start. He thinks he'll return this season but isn't sure at this point when that will happen. "I think tomorrow will be more of a day where I can really give an honest opinion as far as how soon I can get on a mound," Cosart said. "I'm optimistic today. I'm going to pitch again this year. I'm going to make sure of that."

Updating an earlier report, Jarred Cosart left Wednesday's game against the Red Sox with a strained right hamstring and a strained right groin.

He suffered the injuries while covering first base in the fourth inning. It's hard to envision Cosart making his next start and with only a few weeks left in the season, there's a good chance the Padres will go ahead and shut him down. The 26-year-old sports a 5.16 ERA over 11 big-league outings this year.

Jarred Cosart left Wednesday's start against the Red Sox after jamming his ankle on a play at first base.

He came down awkwardly covering first on an errant throw by Wil Myers. Cosart scattered two hits and three runs (two earned) over 3 1/3 innings before exiting. The Padres should update his status later tonight, so stay tuned.

Jarred Cosart was pounded for seven runs in 4 1/3 innings by the Braves on Thursday.

Cosart had pitched well in three straight starts before getting lit up today by a Braves team that has been hitting quite well of late. He doesn't seem likely to bounce back with the Red Sox next on the schedule.

Jarred Cosart allowed two runs (one earned) in five innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Friday.

Facing his former team, Cosart gave up five hits and walked a pair while striking out three. He left the game in position for the victory, but the bullpen coughed up the lead in the eighth and the Marlins went on to win the game in the ninth. Cosart has allowed one earned run or fewer in three straight starts, but he’s still in search for his first win this season. Maybe next time. He lines up for a start against the Dodgers next week.

Jarred Cosart limited the Mets to one run on three hits over six innings Saturday.

The right-hander gave up three singles and walked two on the evening, striking out two as well. Unfortunately for Cosart, his offense didn't give him much backing, leaving him with a no-decision. Cosart has now pitched relatively well in two of his three starts as a member of the Padres. He'll carry a 5.03 ERA and 1.68 WHIP -- accumulated in just seven starts this year -- into Thursday's start against the Diamondbacks.
