Manager: Surgery a success for Rays RHP Alex Cobb
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) Rays manager Kevin Cash has declared the Tommy John surgery undergone by top pitcher Alex Cobb a success, per the Tampa Tribune.
"Now the rehab process starts," Cash said.
Cobb has lost the entire 2015 season.
Rays SP Alex Cobb opts for season-ending Tommy John surgery
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/8/15) Rays starting pitcher Alex Cobb told reporters Friday he will have season-ending Tommy John surgery. Cobb did not make one start for Tampa Bay in 2015 and had been on the disabled list all season.
The right-hander was hoping to pitch through a partially torn ligament in his right elbow. However, he found out it was actually a full tear in his UCL, which made the decision to have surgery easier.
Pitchers usually need 12-18 months of recovery time after undergoing Tommy John surgery. Cobb is undergoing the surgery Thursday and is targeting a Sept. 2016 return.
"I've never seen Alex back down from a challenge. Hopefully he's back next year pitching for us in October," Rays general manager Matt Silverman said.
The 27-year-old Cobb is 35-23 with a 3.21 ERA in 81 starts in four seasons for the Rays.
Rays SP Alex Cobb visits Dr. Andrews, gets PRP injection
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/7/15) After being diagnosed with a partial tear of in a ligament in his right elbow, Rays pitcher Alex Cobb received a platelet-rich plasma injection from Dr. James Andrews, the Tampa Bay Times reports. Cobb will now rest for a week, and it could be as long as month before he begins rigorous baseball activities.
Cobb suffered a setback in his recovery from forearm tendinitis, and has yet to play a game in 2015. The possibility of Tommy John surgery could be in play, though the team has not made any official statements as of yet.
Rays' Cobb will try to pitch through partially torn elbow ligament
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Rays pitcher Alex Cobb underwent testing, which revealed a partial tear in his elbow ligament, the team confirmed on Tuesday, per the Tampa Bay Times.
Cobb suffered a setback in his recovery from forearm tendinitis on Monday. Although general manager Matthew Silverman told reporters that any setback is concerning, he reiterated that it's premature to speculate on surgery for Cobb. For now, the right-hander will try to pitch through the issue.
|2014 summary: Between missing more than a month with an oblique strain and posting a 4.14 ERA through 13 starts, Alex Cobb had a forgettable first half, but he made amends with Fantasy owners after the All-Star break. Over his final 14 starts, Cobb limited opponents to a .285 slugging percentage, which helped him to go 6-3 with a 1.79 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. The strong finish helped Cobb to register his second straight season with a sub-3.00 ERA, and his 10-9 record gave him three consecutive seasons with double-digit wins.|
Playing time status: With David Price gone, Cobb was expected to assume the role of staff ace for the Rays this season, but tendinitis in his right forearm has put a damper on those plans. It's not considered a serious injury, but it'll likely put him on the DL to begin the year and cost him at least a couple starts in April. That elusive 200-inning season is already looking like a long shot.
2015 outlook: Over the last two seasons, Cobb has been a very good, but not great, strikeout pitcher, but that could change soon. He increased his swinging strike rate from 10 to 12 percent last season. It's yet another reason to like Cobb's potential, but with the injury risk, you can wait until the top 25 starting pitchers are gone to draft him.
