    Was looking for scouting reports on Cosart and wound up back here on page 2. 52K in 36 innings is quite a spike in K rate from last year at Lowell. Found a write up from last year saying he still had no feel for 2ndary pitches, which explains the atrocious walk rate (everyone in the system seems afflicted by this). But the K rate and this write up saying he can touch 98 make for some brightness in an otherwise miserable week of Red Sox baseball.

    One thing to note about Cosart is that he was a two-way player until his sophomore year in college so he has a lot to learn. His rates are also trending in the right direction year-to-year while advancing levels. Pitchers with ridiculous K rates can also survive walking guys more often than those who rely on contact to get their outs. AJ Ramos of the Marlins comes to mind. If Cosart could come close to that, I think we would be happy. Still a ways off to be worrying about him though.

    Cosart is absolutely someone to follow, but a recent tweet from one of the guys at soxprospects (forget who) stated that his mechanics are still super violent (all arm) and that his secondary offerings are essentially nonexistent.

    You gotta love the fastball, and as alluded to a few posts up, he's relatively new to pitching but there's a ton of risk and rough edges on the profile. Fun guy to follow, though.

    Not bad.

    Cosart is a big time relief prospect. We could see him in the majors as early as next season if he does well in AA at the beginning of 2017 (though, 2018 is a safer bet). According to Mayo:

    His delivery is violent but he can get away with that as a relief pitcher. He is working on two secondary pitches, the hard curveball and splitter to complement his fastball.

    Through 31 IP over 25 games in AA so far: 4.06 ERA, 7.84 K/9, 9.87 BB/9. He's given up 34 walks which is almost twice as many as the 18 hits he's allowed, so hitters still can't touch him but he's walking more than a guy per inning.
