Build: Tall and wiry; skinny hips and shoulders; may put slight weight on but lacks the body for large projection.
Mechanics: 3/4 arm slot; plus arm speed; loose arm; stab; routinely opens up front shoulder; out of sync; hips and shoulders become out of unison; mild drive; shoulder opening causes foot to open on landing; overall easy delivery; loses tempo; delivery times ~1.45.

30; Organizational player
T95 1X; average plane; mild life; moderate armside run; aggressive with fastball in all quadrants; mechanical inconsistencies currently hindering command; FB will tick a grade higher if relegated to bullpen role.
Inconsistent arm speed replication; 11-5 offering; moderate depth; release points highly inconsistent; harder offering that can work as an out-pitch when located; refinements in arm speed and release points will improve offering.
Inconsistent arm speed replication; lacks feel; firm offering; release points highly inconsistent; velo separation is currently only reason it is effective; advanced hitters will easily identify offering.
Cosme has a loose arm with two potential average or better pitches, but I do not see the CH ever becoming a workable offering at higher levels. He has velo separation but lacks the feel or movement necessary. Thus, I see a reliever that will rely on his potential plus FB and average CB. Cosme is high risk since he has not seen full season action yet, and the mechanics need a lot of work.
Round Drafted: 17th round, 2014
Why: Athletic pitcher with projection and a loose arm that touches 93+ with a workable CB and CH.
