MLB.com rated Cosart the Phillies' third best prospect going into 2011, while Baseball America rated him #70 in all of baseball. He represented the Phillies in the All-Star Futures Game in 2010 and 2011.
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. 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.
In March 2015, MLB began to investigate Cosart for sports gambling after an alleged direct messaging conversation on Twitter involving Cosart was made public. Cosart denied any involvement in gambling on baseball. MLB fined Cosart for gambling on other sports, but determined that he did not gamble on baseball.
