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.

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 Jon Singleton, Domingo Santana, and Josh Zeid, for Hunter Pence.[4]

Cosart pitching for the Houston Astros in 2014

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. Cosart was critical of Houston management later in his Astros career, leading to him being traded to Miami.

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, Francis Martes, and a compensatory draft pick.[6][7]

Cosart started the season in the Marlins rotation and was 1-3 with a 4.08 ERA. On May 19, 2015, Cosart was placed on the disabled list with a case of vertigo.[8] After a month on the disabled list, Cosart was activated and sent to the Marlins bullpen.[9] Cosart returned to the rotation on July 4 but was sent down a day after by Miami to AAA.[10]

San Diego Padres[edit]

On July 29, 2016, the Marlins traded Cosart, Josh Naylor, Carter Capps, and Luis Castillo to the San Diego Padres for Andrew Cashner, Colin Rea, Tayron Guerrero, and cash considerations.[11] He elected to become a free agent after the Padres outrighted him on October 30, 2017.[12]

Personal life[edit]

Cosart is the grandson of former Chicago Cubs' pitcher Ed Donnelly.[13] His younger brother, Jake Cosart, is a pitcher in the Boston Red Sox minor league system.
