Rays' Alex Cobb: To likely make one rehab start
Alex Cobb, SP, TB
10:27 AM
News: Cobb (elbow) is likely to make one more rehab start for Triple-A Durham following a rough outing against Norfolk on Monday in which he gave up five earned runs on nine hits and two walks over four innings, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

It was another down cycle in the rollercoaster ride that has been Cobb's rehab appearances. He'd looked strong over four innings against Columbus on Aug. 16, but couldn't consistently get hitters out Monday over his 81 pitches. As a result, it's likely the Rays opt to give him one more opportunity to tune up before entering the major league rotation.

Jon Gray
Rockies' Jon Gray: Gets back on track Tuesday versus Brewers
Jon Gray, SP, COL
8:51 AM
News: Gray pitched six innings, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out 10 in a no-decision Tuesday versus the Brewers.

Gray's 10 K's matched his season high set in his first start of the season back on April 22. Tuesday, the sophomore right-hander got back on track after a stretch of three dreadful outings (13.50 ERA) and earned his first quality start in five tries this month. Outside of two poor starts in the April, August has been Gray's worst month of the season, as he owns a 7.83 ERA over 23 innings. Gray will make his next start Monday at home against the Dodgers. In 11 starts at Coors Field this year, the 24-year-old is 5-1, but also sports an ugly 5.11 ERA in 61.2 at his home park.

Joe Kelly
Red Sox's Joe Kelly: Waiting to return to majors
Joe Kelly, SP, BOS
6:55 AM
News: Kelly has allowed one run on five hits without a walk while striking out 11 in eight innings since he was optioned back to Triple-A Pawtucket at the beginning of August.

Given the precarious state of Boston's relievers leading up to closer Craig Kimbrel, Kelly seems like he could help, but while manager John Farrell acknowledged to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe how well he's throwing, the manager added "there are some limitations how we get him here right now." The implication being that Kelly will come back to Boston when rosters expand Sept. 1.

Steven Wright
Red Sox's Steven Wright: Throws bullpen session Tuesday
Steven Wright, SP, BOS
6:43 AM
News: Wright (shoulder) threw what amounted to a two-inning bullpen session Tuesday, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Wright tossed 33 pitches, sat down for a few minutes, then came back and threw 23 more. The knuckle-baller, who last pitched Aug. 5, is scheduled to come off the disabled list and start Friday at home against Kansas City.

Eduardo Rodriguez
Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Return to rotation not yet determined
Eduardo Rodriguez, SP, BOS
6:39 AM
News: Rodriguez (hamstring), who threw a 59-pitch simulated game Tuesday, will throw a bullpen session Thursday, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Rodriguez came out of Tuesday's sim game with no pain and has buoyed his confidence in the hamstring, but the Red Sox will wait until seeing Thursday's session before determining when the left-hander will return to the rotation. Based on the scheudule Rodriguez is on, his return could come Sunday against Kansas City at Fenway Park.

Miguel Gonzalez
White Sox's Miguel Gonzalez: Bullpen sessoin on tap Wednesday
Miguel Gonzalez, SP, CHW
6:25 AM
News: Gonzalez (groin) will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, and he could be close to a minor league rehab assignment, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gonzalez threw from a mound Friday, and this second session appears to be the next step before heading out to the minors. The minor league season ends soon, so his stay at Triple- or Double-A will not last long.

Analysis: 

Archie Bradley
Diamondbacks' Archie Bradley: Takes no-decision against Braves
Archie Bradley, SP, ARI
3:17 AM
News: Bradley allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks with seven strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Tuesday against Atlanta.

Bradley hasn't pitched a quality start since July 27 in Milwaukee. In five starts in August, he has a brutal 5.1 BB/9 helping to fuel a 2.13 WHIP. He's still getting whiffs, as he induced 12 swinging strikes in 103 pitches Tuesday night and has 22 strikeouts in his past 23 innings. But until he can keep the bases clear, it won't be enough to make him a successful pitcher.
