Cosart is day-to-day after X-rays on his foot came back negative Wednesday, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Cosart took a liner off his right foot in the second inning Wednesday, and while he was in noticeable pain, the 26-year-old was able to stay in the game. He allowed four runs on four hits and four walks before being pulled just 2.2 innings into the game. It's unclear if Cosart will be able to make his next scheduled start Monday against the Cubs, but that should become clearer in the coming days based on how his foot feels.
Cosart allowed one run on five hits and a walk over five innings Thursday against Milwaukee. He struck out three and received a no-decision. It was a good outing for Cosart, who was just activated from the disabled list on Sunday to make his third start of the season. Although he only lasted 72 pitches, the 26-year-old worked effectively with a sharp curveball throughout the contest and cooled down a hot Milwaukee offense. Cosart showcased a shortened delivery that seemed to have the Brewers' bats off-balance from the outset. He figuers to take another turn in the rotation in place of Trevor Cahill (shoulder) on Wednesday.
Manager Andy Green confirmed Cosart will start Thursday's game against the Brewers. Cosart will get the nod Thursday in place of Trevor Cahill, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a shoulder strain Wednesday. He's already tossed a pair of games for the Padres this season, allowing three runs (one earned) with a 4:3 K:BB through 7.2 innings of work. He'll line up against Zach Davies and the hot-hitting Brewers.
Cosart could make a spot start Thursday against the Brewers in place of Trevor Cahill (shoulder), AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. Cosart has already made two starts this season, allowing three runs (one earned) on seven hits while posting a 4:3 K:BB in 7.2 innings pitched. He's certainly well-rested given that he hasn't made a major-league appearance since mid-April, so he seems like a logical option to fill the void until Cahill is healthy again. If this comes to fruition, Cosart would line up against Milwaukee right-hander Zach Davies.
Cosart (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday. Cosart was placed on the disabled list April 19 after straining his hamstring during his preceding start. The 26-year-old allowed one earned run over six innings of rehab work between High-A Lake Elsinore and Triple-A El Paso over the past couple of weeks. Manager Andy Green recently hinted that Cosart will likely operate in a long relief role upon his return from the DL, so expect to see him working out of the bullpen for the time being.
