Rays' Alex Cobb: Solid in batting practice session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb threw live batting practice Monday and was happy with the session, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports. "There weren't too many hitters, I had a lot of injured guys in my group who were kind of just tracking," Cobb said. "I had Brad Miller, who was swinging, and he swung often, thankfully [which allowed Cobb to see how a hitter reacted to his pitches]. But it was good."

The 29-year-old righty struggled and in five starts at the big league level last season after missing the entirety of the 2015 season due to Tommy John surgery. Cobb was 1-2 with a mammoth 8.59 ERA and 1.77 WHIP over 22 innings in five starts at the tail end of the season, and enters spring training looking to solidify a spot in the Rays starting rotation. Considering his difficult stretch in 2016, Cobb is looking forward to getting a fresh start this spring and getting some live game action in. "You go from flat-ground work in mid-January, progress up to the bullpens, and live BP. The games. Just another step in that direction. I was happy to get that under my belt."

Rays' Alex Cobb: Avoids arbitration with Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb and the Rays avoided arbitration with a $4.2 million deal, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cobb's return from Tommy John surgery went less than well in 2016, allowing an 8.59 ERA in five starts. He could still easily bounce back from that in 2017, but it could be a red flag for his recovery. Considering this is probably his final round of arbitration, his 2017 season will be vital to his career as he hits free agency at the end of the year.

Rays' Alex Cobb: Surrenders eight runs to White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (1-2) allowed eight runs on eight hits and two walks and lasted just three innings in a loss Tuesday against the White Sox.

Cobb has allowed 15 runs over 4.1 innings in his past two starts after a promising beginning to his injury shortened 2016. He was touched up for a pair of home runs and has now allowed five in as many starts. His ERA is a brutal 8.59, a hard number to believe after he posted a 2.87 ERA in 166.1 innings last season.

Rays' Alex Cobb: Pleased with comeback effort from Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cobb, who makes the first of his last two starts of the season Wednesday versus the Yankees, is pleased with his body of work at the major league level in 2016, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 28-year-old feels he's made significant progress over his three trips to the mound since returning to the major league level. Cobb has given up six earned runs over 17.2 innings over that period, posting a solid 3.06 ERA and 12:4 K:BB. The fact that he's been able to put together some positive efforts at the tail end of 2016 is sure to provide him with some much-needed confidence heading into next season, regardless of how his last pair of outings go. "I've done enough good things to hang my hat on," he said.

Rays' Alex Cobb: No decision in second start back
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cobb allowed four runs (three earned) on nine hits over six innings in Thursday's no-decision at Yankee Stadium, striking out one without a walk.

Cobb has pitched well in two starts since returning from Tommy John surgery, issuing just one free pass in 11 innings. He has no wins to show for his efforts, though, which isn't surprising given Tampa Bay's underwhelming offensive numbers. Wednesday's road matchup with Toronto will be a big test after the 28-year-old held that dangerous lineup at bay nicely in his previous outing at Tropicana Field.
