Rays tender contracts to all six arbitration-eligible players

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/2/14) The Rays have tendered contracts to all six arbitration-eligible players, per the team's official website on Tuesday. Those players include: right-hander Alex Cobb, infielder Logan Forsythe, outfielder Desmond Jennings, outfielder Matt Joyce, left-hander Jake McGee and left-hander Drew Smyly.

Alex Cobb could go from good to great

by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(10/9/14) Aside from missing nearly six weeks with a strained oblique, there wasn't much about Alex Cobb's 2014 season for the Rays that Fantasy owners could complain about. He still made a career-high 27 starts and posted his second straight season with a sub-3.00 ERA, while trimming his WHIP to 1.14. Yet there is still plenty of room for Cobb to improve in 2015.

In a recent blog post, I identified five starting pitchers whose sagging strikeout rates could spell trouble next season, but even though Cobb's K/9 ratio fell from 8.4 to 8.1, he was not included. Though Cobb's strikeout rate was merely average for a standard mixed league starter, the surge in his swinging strike rate from 9.9 to 11.9 percent suggests he could be far from ordinary. Cobb's strikeout rate was dampened by decreases in called strikes and foul balls, but higher rates in both 2012 and 2013 show he is capable of getting more strikes, and in the process, more Ks.

From his return from the disabled list on May 22 forward, Cobb was the 28th-ranked starting pitcher in standard Rotisserie leagues and 31st in Head-to-Head leagues, but owners can expect far more from Cobb next season. Not only is he poised for a boost in strikeouts, but he should rebound from the majors' ninth-lowest level of run support among qualifying starters. Cobb deserved much better than a 10-9 record, and when you couple an increase in wins with an enhanced ERA, WHIP and strikeout total, you have the makings of a potential ace.

Alex Cobb surrenders one run in win vs. Red Sox

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/23/14) Rays pitcher Alex Cobb earned a win Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on five hits and two walks in seven innings and striking out three in his team's 6-2 victory over the Red Sox.

Cobb (10-8) looked like he'd be in line for a hard-luck loss, as a fourth-inning RBI double represented the only run scored in the first seven innings, but the Rays offense was able to break through for five runs in the eighth. Cobb owns a 2.75 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 144:47 K:BB ratio in 160 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Indians in Sunday's season finale.

Alex Cobb turns in quality start in loss

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/17/14) Rays pitcher Alex Cobb turned in a quality start Wednesday against the Yankees.

Cobb allowed three runs on four hits over six innings. He struck out three and walked three during the outing. Cobb got off to a strong start, throwing four scoreless innings to open the frame. He allowed his first two runs in the fifth inning. After hitting the leadoff man with a pitch, Cobb allowed a run to score on a double. Two batters later, he would allow another run-scoring double. He ran into more trouble in the sixth inning. After loading the bases with no outs, Cobb gave up his final run on a sac fly. He was able to work around the base runners, and did not allow any additional runs.

With the loss, Cobb dropped to 9-8. He’ll take on the Red Sox in his next start. 

Alex Cobb flirts with no-no in no-decision

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/11/14) Rays pitcher Alex Cobb flirted with a no-hitter but was unable to factor into the decision Thursday night in New York against the Yankees.

Chris Young doubled in the eighth inning, ending Cobb's bid for a no-no. Cobb was immediately pulled after allowing the first hit of the game. Young belted a walkoff three-run home run in the ninth inning to force a no-decision for Cobb.

The right-hander permitted one run on one hit and two walks while striking out four over 7 1/3 innings of a 5-4 defeat. He owns a 2.75 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP over 24 starts (147 1/3 innings). His next start will come Tuesday at home against the Yankees again.
