Rays' Cobb, Smyly, Colome progressing towards return


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday he's pleased with the progress of injured starting pitchers Alex Cobb (forearm), Drew Smyly (shoulder) and Alex Colome (illness), MLB.com reports.

"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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Rays manager Kevin Cash indicated that Alex Cobb could start a throwing program as early as this weekend, according to the Tampa Tribune.

"Possibly," Cash said. "I wouldn't count on that for sure."

Cobb, who is not expected to be ready for the start of the season due to forearm tendinitis, was evaluated by doctors on Tuesday and said that everything checked out OK.

"I think it was pretty standard, but I think we're all excited about the progress," Cash said. "So a couple of more days and kind of see where we're at."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Silverman would not reveal his Opening Day plans, citing that he's more focused on putting a staff together, internally and externally. Manager Kevin Cash told reporters that there's a lot of moving pieces in the rotation, but he likes what he's seen out of Nathan Karns, Burch Smith and Matt Andriese this spring, per the Tribune.

Rays' Alex Cobb diagnosed with tendinitis in arm, could miss time


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Rays pitcher Alex Cobb has been diagnosed with tendinitis in his arm following his start Tuesday, reports The Tampa Bay Times.

Cobb left the game with tightness in his right forearm and went for an MRI. Cobb is likely to miss a few games, including possibly Opening Day.

"If it was something I was really concerned of, I probably wouldn't have thrown today at all," Cobb said. "This was something I knew about."

Pitching coach Jim Hickey feels it was mostly a precautionary move to take Cobb out Tuesday.

"At this point, any starter coming out of the game with forearm tightness is not good, so this is certainly not good," Hickey said. "But I really thought it was more precautionary than anything else on his part, which is also good because he can be stubborn and want to just go through it."


Rays SP Alex Cobb exits spring start with forearm tightness


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cobb struck out three and did not issue a walk in his outing. Mike Montgomery took over for him to start the fourth inning. He told reporters his forearm was tight before the game, and told pitching coach Jim Hickey he was done after three frames. He added that he'll know more on how his forearm feels the next day when the Rays further evaluate his injury. The right-hander has a 3.68 ERA this spring.


Rays manager Kevin Cash tabs Alex Cobb as opening day starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Rays manager Kevin Cash announced Wednesday starting pitcher Alex Cobb will start the season opener on April 6 against Baltimore.

"There's a lot of things on your short list of career highlights that you can say you've done," Cobb said, per the Tampa Bay Times. "Obvioiusly, with being in the World Series and winning the World Series being at the top. Being an opening day starter falls somewhat shorter than that, but it's right up on that list."

Cash also announced Cobb will be followed in the rotation by Chris Archer, Drew Smyly and Jake Odorizzi. The team will choose a fifth starter this spring.

"He was extremely excited," Cash said of Cobb. "I kind of expected him to say, 'Yeah, OK, whatever,' but he was pumped. And you look back and you're like, 'Man, he's had some good pitchers here that maybe he's had to wait in turn for (James) Shields and (David) Price and those guys. I think he looks at it as being an honor, because there have been some good ones here in the past that have done it."
