Marlins | Jarred Cosart to DL

Mon, 18 May 2015 19:46:11 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart (head) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 18, due to vertigo. The move was made retroactive to May 14. SP Tom Koehler will start Tuesday, May, 19, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Cosart ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) can be dropped wherever he is owned. Cosart isn't much more than occasionally being worthy of streaming, and FantasyScore owners should wait for a positive matchup a few starts after Cosart's return from the DL.

Marlins | Jarred Cosart throws bullpen session

Sat, 16 May 2015 11:41:10 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart (hamstring) experienced no issues while throwing a bullpen session Saturday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: Cosart ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) may be healthy enough to make his next start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday, May 19. Despite the good news, he is still considered a risky play in all fantasy formats and FantasyScore owners will probably want to see how he fares in his next outing before deciding when to use him again.

Marlins | Jarred Cosart undergoes MRI

Fri, 15 May 2015 13:18:28 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart (hamstring) underwent an MRI exam on his right hamstring and is awaiting results. Manager Mike Redmond said it was more of a cramp issue for Cosart, but the team would know more after he throws a bullpen session Saturday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: Cosart ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) might not even be in danger of missing his next start, however, he would have to be viewed as a risky play in all formats. Continue to check back for updates. Cosart has flashed upside in the past, but he has allowed four earned runs in consecutive starts and his lack of strikeouts (career 5.5 K/9) limits his fantasy upside.

Marlins | Tight hamstring for Jarred Cosart

Wed, 13 May 2015 19:08:52 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart (hamstring) left his start against the Los Angeles Dodgers due to tightness in his right hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Cosart's injury is not yet known. If he misses time it might make the team's decision on Henderson Alvarez easier, as they are trying to decide whether he'll be activated Sunday or need another rehab start. If Cosart is forced to the DL, it would be good news for Tom Koehler and David Phelps, as they were candidates to be bumped upon Alvarez's return.

Marlins | Jarred Cosart tops first club

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 21:03:23 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart allowed just one earned run with four hits and no walks over six innings in a win against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, April 22. He also struck out four batters in the 91-pitch quality start against the team which drafted him in the 38th-round back in 2008. "It was my first game pitching here," Cosart said. "The team that drafted you is pretty special. They gave me my first opportunity."

Fantasy Tip: If Cosart continues to pitch like this FantasyScore owners are going to take notice. He has quality starts in two of his three outings this season and he has racked up four or more strikeouts in each of the past two. At just $3,200 (or 6.4% of cap) he isn't a bad sleeper SP2 in FantasyScore.

Marlins | Miami sets rotation

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 15:37:53 -0700

Miami Marlins SPs Mat Latos and Tom Koehler will pitch the second and third games of the season against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, April 7, and Wednesday, April 8, respectively. SPs Dan Haren and Jarred Cosart will start the first two games of the series against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, April 10, and Saturday, April 11, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Henderson Alvarez was already named the starter for opening day, and all five pitchers receive nice matchups to begin the season. The Braves overhauled their lineup this offseason, and the Rays look quite different, too. In the spacious confines of Marlins Park, there is plenty of potential for streaming in seasonal leagues and starting opportunities for FantasyScore players.

Marlins | Jarred Cosart investigated for betting

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 04:38:22 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart is being looked at for gambling-related claims on Twitter, according to a report in the Miami New Times. Cosart is cooperating with Major League Baseball and told reporters that a Twitter account with his name on it was not created by him.

Fantasy Tip: Whether this affects his on-field performance remains to be seen. Cosart was 13-11 last year with the Marlins and Houston Astros, but his walk-to-strikeout ratio (73 walks, 115 strikeouts) was a little too high for some tastes. He may be worth a later-round selection on draft day.

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 12:28:51 -0800

Astros | Jarred Cosart pushed back

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 13:55:46 -0700

Houston Astros SP Jarred Cosart (oblique) will have his next scheduled start Thursday, Aug. 7, pushed back due to an oblique injury. SP Brian Flynn will pitch the series finale instead. Cosart will instead make his next start Tuesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Oblique injuries can be tricky for pitchers and usually require DL stints, so Cosart is by no means out of the woods yet for his next start. Flynn is one of the team's top pitching prospects and should be owned in all NL-only leagues. You can probably wait in deep mixed leagues, but he should at least be on your radar.
