PLAYERS: Jarred Cosart
TEAMS: Houston Astros

Jarred Cosart has allowed eight runs over his seven starts and has only one win to show for it simply because he pitches for the Astros but he boasts two favorable matchups this week though. In seven starts and 45 innings pitched this year Cosart has allowed only eight earned runs. He is coming off his first loss of the year where he allowed more than two earned runs (3) for the first time. Although he lost to the Rangers, he pitched eight shutout innings against the Rays and hung in there with the Red Sox, A’s twice, and Blue Jays. All of those teams have a better offense than the White Sox and Mariners who he will get this coming week. Owned in only 12 percent of Yahoo! leagues and that number will stay low because of the team he plays for...

Castro’s blasts power Astros past Blue Jays

Rested and healthy for the first full season of his career Astros All-Star catcher Jason Castro is rounding the final stretch of the 2013 season with plenty of confidence and power. On Saturday night Castro guided Brad Peacock through 5 2/3 innings calling on his rookie starter’s newfound slider often to get out of trouble. Catchers are judged first and foremost on how they guide...

Astros provide run support for Lyles in 12-4 rout of Blue Jays

The Astros were a hit Friday night at Minute Maid Park. They put up a run-scoring double a home run and a triple to center field before L.J. Hoes supplied their first single in the third inning — and that was only the beginning of an avalanche of offense during a welcome return home. Jonathan Villar set a career high with two of the Astros’ three triples — the most they have...

Castro leads Astros past Jays

Houston manager Bo Porter said early in the season that he thought giving catcher Jason Castro days at designated hitter would keep him fresh late and help the team. It looks like the first-year manager was right. Castro homered twice and drove in three runs to lead the Houston Astros to an 8-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday night. Castro hit a two-run homer in the...
