by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Alex Cobb hopes finding flaw in delivery will snap slump


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"Then your arm starts dragging and everything's elevated, your off-speed pitches flatten out and you give up seven runs and you're walking off the mound," he told the Tampa Bay Times.

Cobb indeed yielded seven runs on 10 hits in just 4 1/3 innings against Seattle in his last start. He has given up 16 runs in 15 1/3 innings since returning from the DL.

Cobb has made just one rehab start, but he feels ready to return after seeing the results of that rehab outing. "Yeah, I do," Cobb said. "Stuff-wise, it was all there. Fastball location was pretty much on par for where it's been leading up to the injuries. I think the only thing that we were worried about was the amount of pitches we could go. After getting through 65 in a game situation in the rehab start, then finishing up [throwing more pitching in the bullpen], I think we're going to be good to go. Not sure on the total number, but enough to be able to go out there and get a good effort going deep into the game."

Alex Cobb could be close to rehab assignment


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) Rays pitcher Alex Cobb made it through his simulated game Friday, a good sign in his recovery from an oblique strain.

Cobb tossed 49 pitches in three simulated innings, and should be able to ramp up his workload in his next outing. That should come Monday, though that schedule could change depending on how he feels Saturday.

"Tomorrow's going to be a huge factor in our next step. Assuming everything goes smoothly, we'll be able to go four innings, live BP sim game on Monday," Cobb told MLB.com.

Cobb might be able to pitch in a minor-league rehab game as soon as next week, if Monday's workout goes well. He continues to aim for a late-May return.

"I think that's a possibility," he said. "Would go probably four simulated innings next time, we went three today, and then a five-inning rehab start. I don't see why that's out of the question."
