Astros pitching prospect sorry for tweet
Monday - 2/10/2014, 9:10pm EST
HOUSTON (AP) -- Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart has apologized after he reportedly used a gay slur to describe pop star Justin Bieber when he tweeted a message to a former teammate.
Cosart deleted the offensive tweet from his account and apologized for "a very poor choice of words." He also says in a tweet that the earlier post does not reflect who he is as a person.
The Astros also released a statement Monday night calling Cosart's tweet "unacceptable" for any member of the organization. The Astros say they talked to Cosart about the post and he is "extremely remorseful."
The 23-year-old Cosart went 1-1 with a 1.95 ERA in 10 starts last season. He is expected to contend for a spot in Houston's rotation this year.
