Cosart is apparently a Marlin.

More to follow, but the haul should be significant...

Update: Jarred Cosart and Kiké Hernandez to the Marlins for Colin Moran, Jake Marisnick and a competitive balance draft pick.

Not sure how I feel about this.  I seem to remember that Colin Moran received some awful scouting reports shortly after he turned pro, with the word "disinterested" being bandied around a lot.  Marisnick is a 23 year-old CF with a handful of unremarkable at bats in the majors in the last two years.

And Cosart and Hernandez were two of my favourite Astros, at least in terms of competitive fire and potential.  I loved Hernandez's hit tool in the Astros current swing-and-miss lineup, but as a relatively unheralded prospect, this might be a sell-high move.

I am sure the Constable will have more as the information comes in.
