Alex Cobb activated from disabled list, to start Thursday night

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Back on June 15, Eric Hosmer destroyed a baseball in the direction of Rays starter Alex Cobb. It nailed Cobb on the side of the head/ear area. Here's the video footage:

Cobb was diagnosed with a concussion and hasn't pitched in the majors since. That's set to change, however, as the Rays announced Thursday that Cobb has been activated and will start this evening against the Mariners. As a corresponding move, infielder Ryan Roberts was designated for assignment.

Cobb, 25, is 6-2 with a 3.01 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 76 strikeouts in 83 2/3 innings this season. He made two minor-league rehab starts, most recently going 4 1/3 innings (giving up five hits and three earned runs) for the High-A Charlotte Stone Crabs.

Cobb joins David Price, Jeremy Hellickson, Chris Archer and Roberto Hernandez in the Rays' current rotation, with Matt Moore on the disabled list.
