Rays SP Alex Cobb opts for season-ending Tommy John surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) 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.

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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"Especially [with] Colome," Cash said. "His wasn't an arm issue. Just putting weight back on. He just had a two-week delay there. But from all reports, when you ask them how's it going, there hasn't been anything given why we wouldn't be optimistic."

Smyly threw a bullpen session Sunday and is scheduled to face hitters in a batting-practice session Wednesday. After following that with another batting-practice session, he could progress to minor-league games and would need to get stretched out and ready for the regular season.

"Depending on need," Cash said. "If he got up to 75 pitches, does that help us? Or do we want to build him up to 105? We'd have to talk to him about that."

Cash added that there's a chance Smyly could rejoin the rotation by the end of April.

Colome threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Saturday and is set to throw 50 pitches Tuesday. Cobb played catch Monday for the second time and said all went well.
