Cobb (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday. Cobb appeared to be closing in on a rehab assignment in mid-May but is apparently not close to returning to action. He now won't be eligible to return until late June. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Keon Broxton, who was acquired in a trade from the Mets on Wednesday.
Manager Brandon Hyde said Cobb (back) will resume his rehab in Florida soon, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports. Cobb has already been on the IL twice this season due to back issues, so the Orioles figure to proceed cautiously with him. A timetable for his return should come into focus once he's able to ramp up his throwing program.
Cobb is getting his back examined in Baltimore, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Cobb, who was placed on the injured list Sunday, is apparently still experiencing some soreness, prompting the Orioles to send him for a follow-up appointment. A timetable for his return will hopefully come into focus following his upcoming evaluation.
Cobb (back) was played on the 10-day injured list Sunday. Cobb has a lumbar strain and his placement on the injured list is retroactive to April 27. He got a late start to the season with a right groin strain and has not pitched well since returning, racking up a 10.95 ERA and 1.86 WHIP across 12.1 innings.
Cobb (0-2) took the loss Friday, giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits -- including four home runs -- and a walk over four innings while striking out two as Baltimore fell 6-1 to Minnesota. The right-hander has faced the Twins in two straight outings and likely never wants to see them again, as they took him deep seven times in only 6.2 innings. Cobb now sports a 10.95 ERA, and his rotation spot could be hanging by a thread heading into his next scheduled start Wednesday, on the road against the White Sox.
