Preview

'The Jarred Cosart Show' has become the most watched and talked about exposition since the start of the season. Cosart has shown the brilliance that warranted his arrival, as part of the Hunter Pence trade, thus far.

The Astros young right-hander has allowed only one earned run over 15 innings, and he has walked six and struck out six. We've seen the best and worst of Jarred Cosart. He has electric stuff that he can't necessarily control at times. He will be facing a homer-happy lineup, that is currently averaging three home runs a game in the Roger Centre. Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista continue to stay hot, they were a combined 6-for-8 with four runs batted in yesterday.

On the mound today for the Blue Jays is Todd Redmond. Redmond was a surprise call up after spending the majority of his previous eight seasons in the minors. Before joining the Jays rotation, Redmond pitched three innings for the Reds in a lone start against the Cubs. He gave up four runs over 3 1/3 innings. Toronto is the second team in Redmond's career to claim him off waivers.

As a starter, Redmond is 1-0 in three starts with a 4.91 ERA. He had his longest outing of the year, allowing three runs over 5 2/3 inning against the Dodgers. Redmond has good command of three average pitches a four seam, slider, and change. Hopefully the Astros will continue to be able to keep up their home run assault. Houston has five home runs in the last two games.

Robbie Grossman will be making his return to the Astros starting lineup today in left field.
