As an outfielder, Jarred Cosart broke Jay Buhner's Clear Creek High record for batting average this spring, hitting .506 to Buhner's .480. But pro teams are more interested in Cosart as a loose, athletic 6-foot-3, 180-pound righthander. He reached 96 mph with his fastball in the fall, but he topped out at 92 this spring. He's more of a project as a pitcher than he is as a hitter, as he has an awkward pause in the middle of his delivery that compromises his ability to throw strikes or refine his secondary pitches. He wanted top-three-rounds money to sign, which means he'll likely attend Missouri, where he'll play both ways.
