Rays SP Alex Cobb still not cleared for bullpen session
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Rays starter Alex Cobb told reporters he is throwing pain-free, but is still unsure when he'll be cleared to throw a bullpen session. He is scheduled to play catch at a distance of 90 feet on Saturday, per the Tampa Tribune.
"We're on track for what we thought," Cobb said. "There's been no setbacks. It's just a lengthy process before it gets fully healed and then we're good to go.
"I've been shut down for a while," Cobb said, "so we got to build back up."
Rays Kevin Cash: Alex Cobb still limited to playing catch
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Rays reliever Alex Cobb (forearm tendinitis) played catch Tuesday, and reportedly threw harder than he had previously in his throwing program. However, he remains without a timetable for his return, and is still limited to playing catch, manager Kevin Cash said Wednesday, according to the Tampa Tribune and the Tampa Bay Times.
Rays' Alex Cobb (forearm) without timetable to return to mound
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Rays manager Kevin Cash said Sunday that he doesn't know when pitcher Alex Cobb (forearm) will return to the mound, MLB.com reports. Cobb has been limited to playing catch as he recovers from forearm tendinitis.
Rays' Alex Cobb plays catch Tuesday, calls it 'best day yet'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Rays starting pitcher Alex Cobb, who is on the 15-day disabled list due to a forearm injury, played catch Tuesday, per the Tampa Bay Times. He called it the "best day yet."
Rays place five on DL, including Alex Cobb, Drew Smyly
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/5/15) The Rays placed five players on the disabled list to set their Opening Day roster.
Among the moves the team made on Sunday were:
Placed P Alex Cobb (forearm), infielder Nick Franklin (oblique) and P Drew Smyly (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 27. They are eligible to return on April 11, although none are expected to be ready by then.
Placed P Jake McGee (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list as of April 5.
Placed pitcher Matt Moore (elbow) on the 60-day disabled list as of April 5.
Added catcher Bobby Wilson to the roster.
|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.
