Jarred Cosart is also excited about the opportunity that awaits him in the Astros organization, mainly, having an opportunity in an organization:
"As a player, the No. 1 goal is getting to the big leagues. I didn't think I'd have a chance with the Phillies for at least a couple years. They spent $250 million on three pitchers. Coming here, with a lot of young guys, it's a good opportunity."
Like Oberholtzer, he was also sad, then excited:
I had heard from my agent about the possibility that Singleton was gonna go. It actually took about an hour-and-a-half [for them to tell us]. They were still in the process of finishing it. It was actually a little bit of shock and disbelief at first. It's kind of like a storybook thing, playing for your hometown team. I was kind of in shock at first, but then that turned to excitement. You see they've got a lot of young guys there and a willingness to move young guys up."
