Jarred Cosart levels off after rough start in victory Monday
Jarred Cosart pitched four innings allowing three hits, two earned-runs, and five bases-on-balls during Monday's 5-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Cosart also earned two strikeouts during the outing.
Since returning from a hamstring strain against Arizona on the 18th of April, Cosart's performance on the mound has not been consistent. Granted, there are only three starts in May to use as a sample size, but looking at those games a growing earned-run-average and WHIP can be observed. The 27-year-old Right-Hander holds a 4.50 earned-run-average with a 1.80 WHIP through 20 innings-pitched for the 2017 season. Cosart is not a recommended fantasy option at this time.
