      Rays' Alex Cobb: Transferred to 60-day DL

      Cobb (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. It's just a procedural move for the Rays, who likely aren't expecting Cobb to make his return from Tommy John surgery until midseason at the earliest. Cobb's placement on the 60-day DL will open up a roster spot for reliever Jhan Marinez, who had his contract purchased from Triple-A Durham.

      Rays' Alex Cobb: Progresses again in rehab

      Cobb has progressed to throwing off the top of a mound in his rehab, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The 28-year-old right-hander, recovering from May 2015 Tommy John surgery, took the latest step in his recovery on Tuesday in St. Petersburg. A potential mid-season return remains viable, assuming that the rehab process continues setback-free.

      Rays' Alex Cobb: Resumes playing catch in rehab process

      Cobb has resumed playing catch and is a week away from starting to throw off the mound, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The 28-year-old right-hander's rehab from May 2015 Tommy John surgery continues on schedule, and absent any setbacks, could result in a mid-season return. Cobb has compiled a 35-23 record and 3.21 ERA over 81 starts in his four-year major league career.

      Rays' Alex Cobb: Plays catch from 120 feet Sunday

      Cobb (elbow) was able to play catch from 120 feet Sunday, Steve Carney of 620 AM WDAE reports. Cobb, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery last May, said he plans to extend his catch distance to 135 feet before taking a two-week break in his rehab process. It's not expected that he'll be on the mound at all during spring training, and may not be able to make his season debut until closer to the All-Star break.

      Rays' Alex Cobb: Agrees to $4 million deal with Rays

      Cobb agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract with the Rays on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. Cobb attempted to pitch through a partial UCL tear in his pitching elbow last season before ultimately opting to undergo Tommy John surgery in May. He'll likely miss a large portion of the first half of the season in order to continue rehabbing his elbow before returning to the mound.

      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.
