MRI confirms oblique strain for Alex Cobb


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) An MRI confirmed Rays starting pitcher Alex Cobb has a left oblique strain. There is no timetable set for his return, but the Tampa Bay Times suggests Cobb could miss 6-8 weeks.

Alex Cobb becomes third Rays starting pitcher to land on DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Erik Bedard, who was recalled Saturday to work in relief, will likely replace Cobb in the rotation, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Cobb has been sent back to Florida to undergo an MRI, but he said it was just "precautionary."

Rays starting pitcher Chris Archer suggests the activities related to interleague play (hitting and running the bases) led to Cobb's injury.

"It's saddening,'' Archer said.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cobb gave up a homer and RBI double to Robinson Cano during his time on the mound. Otherwise, the Yankees couldn't get to him. He allowed two earned runs on seven hits and three walks over 5 2/3 innings. His pitch count was elevated as he threw 100 with five strikeouts. Cobb's ERA is at 2.87.

The 25-year-old Cobb had been sensational for the Rays since coming back from the scary head injury he suffered when a line drive was hit at his head. He won his previous two outings with just two runs allowed over 11 innings and 11 Ks over that stretch. He's mowed down 16 batters over his last 16 2/3.

Although he wasn't at his best Sunday, he was still good enough to keep the Rays in the game. Cobb will make his next start for manager Joe Maddon on Friday at Oakland.
