There was no outlook written for Jake Cosart in 2018. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
Promoted to High-A
PBoston Red Sox  AA
August 18, 2016
Cosart has been promoted High-A Salem, Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports.
ANALYSIS
Cosart, who converted to being a reliever in 2016, used his high-90s fastball to dispatch hitters at Low-A rather easily, striking out 76 batters in 52.2 innings. In his first three games with Salem, batters are 1-for-25 against and he's struck out 15 in 7.2 innings. Where his fastball was the weapon of choice at Low-A Greenville, Cosart has been getting swings and misses with his curveball and splitter. "Both pitches have their moments and show pretty good potential," said Red Sox farm director Ben Crockett.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Cosart showed good form in the 2014 Fall Instructionals, but that didn't carry over in 2015 at Short-Season Lowell, for whom he had a 5.45 ERA and walked 20 in 33 innings. He had a 93-95 mph fastball with sink and two offspeed pitches that were plus offerings, but in an effort to include more lower body in his delivery, Cosart's mechanics became inconsistent and he lost the ability to control the ball. His velocity fell to 91-94 and now the mechanics need work. He'll have to prove in spring training that he's ready for full-season Low-A Greenville, but he'll probably start in extended spring training where he'll need to work on his mechanics.
