Overall Summary
Coshow is presently a starter with a reliever arsenal. He has a large frame and his body will be high maintenance going forward to make sure his weight does not get overbearing and cause him to lose his athleticism. His command of his fastball and slider are ahead of his changeup and curveball. With more command of his changeup in the strike zone, it could possibly be a fringe-average pitch. He can get visibly frustrated after giving up hits and over ball-and-strike calls. Coshow struggles to repeat his delivery but has the aggressiveness, and fastball/slider combination, to make him best suited for back-end bullpen role, with a ceiling of a 8th-inning reliever and floor of a swing type/middle-innings reliever.
