As his baseball activities wrapped up in Clearwater, Florida this month, where Cosart had been doing his therapy and throwing sessions, Cosart was assigned to return to the Lakewood BlueClaws and join his teammates for their playoff push, as they attempt to repeat as South Atlantic League champions.
With the BlueClaws this season, Cosart went 7-3 with a 3.79 ERA and 77 strike outs in 71 1/3 innings pitched. Cosart's sick fastball (often measured at 97 MPH) and exceptional command got him recognized recently as the #2 prospect in the entire Phillies minor league system, in a survey of minor league experts conducted by the Reading Eagle.
I had the opportunity to speak with Jarred over the weekend about his status, what activities he's doing to stay healthy and what he'll be working on over the off-season. Check out the media player below to listen to the full interview.
