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.

Rays' Alex Cobb: Solid in return from Tommy John
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (0-0) held the Blue Jays to two runs on four hits while striking out seven over five innings of work Friday in his return from Tommy John surgery.

Cobb's first big league start in almost two years was encouraging, as he settled down after a rough first two innings to retire the final 10 batters he faced. While he has had battled frequent injuries since breaking into the majors in 2011, he has consistently proven to be an effective starter for the Rays when healthy.

Rays' Alex Cobb: Activated from DL, set to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cobb (elbow) was activated from the 60-day DL on Monday and is set to start Friday against the Blue Jays.

The Rays went ahead and activated Cobb prior to roster expansion, designating Steve Geltz as a corresponding move. He will start Friday against a potent Blue Jays lineup in his first big league start in almost two years after undergoing Tommy John surgery. For what it's worth, Cobb has been hit hard in his rehab starts, but his big league track record still makes him worth rostering in mid-sized formats over the rest of the season.

Rays' Alex Cobb: Set to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (elbow) will start Friday against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Friday will mark Cobb's first major league action since 2014, as the 28-year-old is finally at the end of his lengthy recovery from Tommy John surgery. The results have been somewhat rocky during his rehab stint, as he's worked to a 6.60 ERA over four starts at Triple-A and a 6.75 ERA in four starts at High-A, so the Rays will likely play it fairly cautiously with not much on the line in the final month. Tampa is expected to go with a six-man rotation for the time being, so no further changes to the rotation are forthcoming.
