      Rays pitcher Alex Cobb begins throwing program Saturday

      Rays pitcher Alex Cobb (elbow) threw a baseball Saturday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery in May, Roger Mooney of The Tampa Tribune reports. Cobb should gradually increase his throwing activities throughout the offseason, but he's still unlikely to open the 2016 season as a member of the Rays' rotation. If he endures no setbacks in his recovery over the next several months, it's possible Cobb could return to the majors at some point before midseason.

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

      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. The right-hander was hoping to pitch through a partially torn ligament in his right elbow. However, he found out it was actually a full tear in his UCL, which made the decision to have surgery easier. 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. The 27-year-old Cobb is 35-23 with a 3.21 ERA in 81 starts in four seasons for the Rays.
