Jarred Cosart lasted just one-third of an inning and gave up seven runs in an ugly loss to the A's on Friday.
Cosart walked four and gave up two homers before being pulled. It was quite a massacre for a guy who entered with a 2.42 ERA in 13 big-league starts. He had allowed just four homers in 78 innings dating back to his callup last season. We're not very high on Cosart for fantasy purposes this year, but hopefully this will go down as an isolated incident. Apr 19 - 1:42 AM

Jarred Cosart yielded three earned runs over seven innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Rangers.

Cosart racked up eight strikeouts and showed improved control, but the Rangers' offense got to him for runs in the first, second, and fourth innings. Cosart will bring a 4.00 ERA into his next outing on the road in Oakland.
Apr 12 - 11:39 PM

Jarred Cosart was shaky in Monday's loss to the Angels, allowing five runs on three hits and four walks over six innings.

Cosart managed to get through his first start of the season without walking anyone, but his lack of control showed up in this one. The hard-throwing right-hander now sports an unsightly 40/39 K/BB ratio over his first 12 major league outings. Cosart will try to right the ship this weekend in Texas in a tough matchup.
Apr 7 - 6:23 PM

Jarred Cosart tossed five shutout innings and got the win in Wednesday's start against the Yankees.

Cosart, for the most part, stayed out of trouble, allowing only five hits. He didn't issue a walk and struck out three. Part of the haul in 2011's Hunter Pence trade with the Phillies, Cosart showed promise in 10 starts last season despite command issues and a mediocre ability to generate whiffs.
Apr 2 - 11:33 PM

Jarred Cosart will start the second game of the Astros' regular season schedule against the Yankees.

Cosart has been knocked around this spring in the Grapefruit League, but the Astros obviously aren't too concerned about those results. The 23-year-old right-hander posted a 1.95 ERA and 33 strikeouts over his first 60 major league innings last season and could hold some value in deeper mixed fantasy formats in 2014. Brett Oberholtzer will start the Astros' third regular-season game.
Mar 20 - 10:59 AM

Jarred Cosart struggled in a loss to the Cardinals on Friday, giving up five runs in 3 1/3 innings.

Cosart had successful first and third innings, but the Cardinals hit him pretty hard in the other two frames. Cosart has now given up seven runs (six earned), seven hits and five walks in seven innings for the spring. A spot in Houston's rotation is his to lose, and he hasn't been bad enough to throw it away with his performance so far.
Mar 14 - 4:58 PM

Jarrod Cosart pitched two hitless innings as the Astros beat a Braves split-squad 7-4 on Sunday.

The 23-year0old Cosart isn't guaranteed a spot, but he's definitely being penciled into Houston's rotation after posting a 1.95 ERA in 60 innings as a rookie. He struck out one and walked one today.
Mar 2 - 4:06 PM

The Astros have shut down Jared Cosart for the remainder of the season.

Cosart allowed one unearned run on two hits over five innings for a no-decision Monday in his final start. He'll finish the season with a 1.95 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 60 innings and should open 2014 in the front-end of the Astros' rotation.

Jarred Cosart allowed one unearned run on only two hits over five innings of Monday's no-decision against the Mariners.

Seattle couldn't touch Cosart's stuff, but the right-hander walked six batters. Cosart has posted a spectacular 1.95 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 60 innings over 10 starts, but he's produced an awful 33/35 K/BB ratio. Cosart will find out next week that the Reds aren't as generous as the Mariners in stranding runners.

Jarred Cosart allowed four runs over four innings but escaped with a no-decision against the Twins on Tuesday.

Cosart suffered his first real setback Tuesday, as it was the first time in nine starts that he allowed more than three runs. His control continues to be an issue, as his three free passes gives him 29 allowed in just 55 innings this season. Still, the right-hander has been good enough that his clunker raised his ERA to a still-stellar 2.13 over nine starts. He's got a good shot at rebounding Sunday against the A's at Coliseum.

Jarred Cosart turned in a quality start in Wednesday's loss to the White Sox, allowing just one run on seven hits in his six frames.

Cosart struck out four while matching his career-high with five free passes. The only damage against him came on an RBI single from Paul Konerko in the first inning, but he was able to work his way out of trouble the rest of the evening. The 23-year-old will carry a 1.59 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 25/26 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's home start against the Twins.

Jarred Cosart allowed three runs in six innings in a loss against the Rangers on Tuesday.

The first time Cosart has allowed more than two runs in a start is also the first loss for Cosart. The right-hander gave up four hits, including an Adrian Beltre two-run homer, and three walks on the night. Even with the loss, Cosart still carries a dazzling 1.60 ERA after seven major league starts. He'll take on the White Sox in Chicago on Monday.
Wed, Aug 21, 2013 12:35:00 AM

Jarred Cosart fired six shutout innings in a no-decision against the A's on Wednesday.

Cosart went toe-to-toe against Jarrod Parker on the road, once again providing a glimmer of hope in an otherwise dismal season for Houston fans. The 23-year-old rookie scattered three hits, walked one and struck out four. He's allowed two runs or less in all six of his big league starts and still hasn't given up a home run. Cosart remains 1-0 -- largely because of his teammates -- with a 1.15 ERA and 1.18 WHIP.
Thu, Aug 15, 2013 01:48:00 AM

Jarred Cosart allowed two runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Cosart came out of the start relatively unscathed, but it could have been much worse for the 23-year-old. Cosart walked five and allowed seven hits in his five innings, striking out just three. It broke his string of four straight starts allowing zero or one run. Still, Cosart goes into Tuesday's start against the A's with a 1-0 record and 1.36 ERA through five starts.

Jared Cosart was handed a no-decision after tossing seven innings of one-run ball Friday against the Twins.

Cosart left in line for the victory, but Jose Cisnero blew the lead in the eighth inning. The rookie right-hander gave up just five hits and one walk while striking out four. He has now allowed just three earned runs over 28 innings through his first four starts in the majors, good enough for a 0.96 ERA. We wouldn't trust him in mixed fantasy leagues with the Red Sox on tap for next week, but the Astros have an intriguing talent on their hands here.
