McTaggart has an interview new Astro Jarred Cosart, who is reporting to Corpus, is predictably excited about joining the hometown team.
“It doesn’t matter what team, but now that I’m with my hometown team it’s unbelievable. And the fact they’re rebuilding and they have a lot of young guys and there’s an opportunity. I want to pitch in the big leagues and I want to win. There Astros are going into that mode and they want to win with younger guys. It shows a lot about the organization’s belief in young guys and giving younger guys a chance, something the Phillies really didn’t need to do.”
