3. How will Jarred Cosart perform after returning from injury?
Cosart, who has battled vertigo all season, is currently recovering and preparing to pitch again. The club expects him to be thrown back in the mix in a week or two.
The best case scenario is that Cosart pitches like the Marlins expected him to when trading for him. He owned a 3.69 ERA with both Houston and Miami in 2014, which I’m sure the Marlins would be satisfied with, so long that Cosart remains healthy.
The worst case is that Jarred Cosart pitches like he has in 2015 (1-4, 5.36 ERA, 5.22 FIP). Fans already question and disagree with the decision to deal for Cosart, and a failed rotation option would further prove that point.
