RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Coming over to the Astros as a key piece in the Hunter Pence deal, Cosart immediately became the top prospect in the Houston farm system. His fastball usually sits in the mid-90s, but he is able to dial it up to 97-99 mph if he needs to. Despite the promise, his results confound, as with all of his tools he should have fared much better last year. Part of the reason the Phillies were willing to deal Cosart was that he is maddeningly inconsistent, looking like a future ace some days and a future failed prospect on others. His overconfidence on the mound and love for his fastball tend to suggest he is better suited for the back of the bullpen. In either case, he will likely begin the season back in Double-A.
Cosart was selected out of high school by the Phillies in the 38th round of the 2008 draft. He opened some eyes last season with a 77:16 K:BB ratio in 71 innings at Low-A Lakewood as a 20-year-old. He was selected to pitch in the Futures Game but was pulled from the roster with a strained right elbow. The Phillies sent Cosart to see Dr. James Andrews who gave Cosart a clean bill of health. The Phillies opted to rest Cosart depite the positive diagnosis and had him back on a mound in September during the Fall Instructional League where he was reportedly throwing in the upper-90s. Cosart will need to develop his secondary pitches but his velocity and solid command make him a prospect worth keeping an eye on. He has the potential to break out this year.
Cosart was a 38th round pick in 2008 out of high school in League City, Texas. He posted a 2.22 ERA with a 25:7 K:BB ratio in 24.1 innings for the Gulf Coast League Phillies in 2009. Cosart can hit 94 MPH, spins a curve, and throws strikes. We need a larger data size at higher levels, but he's got the potential to surprise down the line.
