Rays' Alex Cobb: Scratched due to injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb was scratched from his minor league start Sunday due to left lower back tightness, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cobb missed a majority of the 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but has appeared to be healthy during spring camp thus far. This is the first news of any sort of back ailment, so this late scratch is certainly something worth monitoring. The 29-year-old will be an important piece to the Rays' rotation in 2017.

Rays' Alex Cobb: Goes five-plus innings in Tuesday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb gave up three earned runs on six hits, a walk and a wlid pitch over 5.1 innings in Tuesday's 5-4 Grapefruit League loss to the Pirates.

The right-hander improved as the game went on, overcoming the first-inning home run he gave up to John Jaso and the wild pitch that allowed Jose Usuna to score in the fourth. Cobb described himself as starting off "a little timid" and "too mechanical" before settling in. The 29-year-old was able to demonstrate improved command of his fastball and got his typical assortment of groundball outs with his changeup as the game went on. Cobb also worked on his curveball early in counts as he continues to refine his mechanics in anticipation of serving as the team's No. 3 starter.

Rays' Alex Cobb: Works against minor leaguers Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb threw 78 pitches over 4.1 innings against Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cobb cruised through his first four innings against the Twins affiliate before running into trouble in the fifth. His final line included three runs (two earned) on three hits and three walks. He found the strike zone with 52 of his offerings and notched four strikeouts overall in an outing intended to keep Cobb on his regular pitching schedule. "Four good innings and then I hit a little bit of a wall in the fifth,'' Cobb said. "Probably a little bit of lost focus more than anything. But overall it was a great day.''

Rays' Alex Cobb: Surrenders pair of earned runs Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (1-1) surrendered two earned runs on four hits and two walks over 3.1 innings in Saturday's 2-1 Grapefruit League loss to the Red Sox.

Cobb pitched scoreless ball through the first two innings before surrendering a pair of runs in the third. He fired 63 pitches overall, 40 of which found the strike zone. The outing brought Cobb's spring ERA to 3.24 over 8.1 innings and was another encouraging step for the right-hander as he continues to build up his stamina. "I'm on the right path," Cobb said. "Real excited to get on the mound again. Get a bullpen. Just play catch. And take away a lot of stuff that I learned about myself today."

Rays' Alex Cobb: Strong three-inning effort Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb gave up one earned run on three hits over three innings in Sunday's 5-3 Grapefruit League win over the Blue Jays.

Cobb is providing plenty of reason for optimism thus far, as he's now given up just one earned run over five innings across two appearances. The 29-year-old right-hander faced off against what was essentially the Blue Jays' regular lineup and surrendered his only run on a sacrifice fly by Steve Pearce in the second. Although the final line looked impressive, Cobb, ever the perfectionist, is still working on perfecting his mechanics. "It's a complete feel/mindset type of thing,'' he said. "Micro-fractions of inches here or there change everything down at home plate. ... Obviously it's taken a little longer than I wish.''
