Philadelphia Phillies

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

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

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]


Cosart is the grandson of former Chicago Cubs and Houston Buffs pitcher Ed Donnelly.[11]
