Jarred Lynn Cosart (born May 25, 1990) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Miami Marlins of Major League Baseball (MLB). He has also played in MLB for the Houston Astros.


Cosart attended Clear Creek High School in League City, Texas. He signed a letter of intent with the University of Missouri.[1]

Philadelphia Phillies[edit]

Cosart was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 38th round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft, and signed with the Phillies.

Cosart in 2010

MLB.com rated Cosart the Phillies' third best prospect going into 2011, while Baseball America rated him #70 in all of baseball.[2] He represented the Phillies in the All-Star Futures Game in 2010 and 2011.[3]

Houston Astros[edit]

At the 2011 trade deadline, Cosart was traded to the Houston Astros with Jonathan Singleton, Domingo Santana, and Josh Zeid, for Hunter Pence.[4]

Cosart started the 2013 season with the Triple-A Oklahoma City RedHawks. He was called up by the Astros on July 12, 2013, and made his MLB debut against the Tampa Bay Rays.[5] During his debut, he took a no-hitter through 6.1 innings until a single by Ben Zobrist. Cosart pitched 8+ innings with 2 strikeouts, 2 hits allowed, and 3 walks issued, to get his first major league win.

Miami Marlins[edit]

On July 31, 2014, the Astros traded Cosart, Enrique Hernández, and Austin Wates to the Miami Marlins for Jake Marisnick, Colin Moran, Frances Martes, and a compensatory draft pick.[6] [7]


Cosart is the grandson of former Chicago Cubs and Houston Buffs pitcher Ed Donnelly.[8]

In March 2015, MLB began to investigate Cosart for sports gambling after an alleged direct messaging conversation on Twitter involving Cosart was made public.[9] Cosart denied any involvement in gambling on baseball.[10] MLB fined Cosart for gambling on other sports, but determined that he did not gamble on baseball.[11]
