Manager Joe Maddon said he hopes Cobb (wrist) is able to start Thursday against the White Sox, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

Cobb has apparently checked out OK over the past few days after completing a simulated game Friday, and he's now expected to rejoin the starting rotation. The veteran right-hander has been on the shelf since late July and figures to face some workload limitations in his return to the mound, especially since he's set to return without a rehab assignment.
