  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Earns second win of 2022

    Cobb (2-1) earned the win Wednesday after tossing 5.1 innings, giving up one run on three hits and two walks while striking out six against the Rockies.

    Cobb held the Rockies scoreless over the first five frames, ultimately getting pulled with one out in the six inning and seeing one of the runners he left on base come around to score. The 34-year-old has put together two consecutive strong starts after only lasting two-thirds of an inning versus the Nationals on May 1, allowing just three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out 14 over 10.1 frames in those outings. In his first season with the Giants, Cobb owns a 3.98 ERA and 1.38 WHIP with 28 punchouts in 20.1 innings over six starts.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Whiffs eight in five innings

    Cobb didn't factor into the decision during Friday's 3-2 loss to St. Louis, allowing two runs on three hits and one walk with eight strikeouts in five innings.

    Making his second start since returning from the IL, Cobb retired the first 10 Cardinals but slowed down from there with the outing ending in a two-run Harrison Bader home run. Manager Gabe Kapler opted to pull Cobb after the fifth despite a reasonable 74 pitches, meaning the 34-year-old has now failed to surpass five innings in each of his four starts. He'll carry a 4.80 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into his next start, tentatively slated to come Wednesday against Colorado.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Can't escape first inning

    Cobb (1-1) took the loss during Sunday's 11-5 defeat at the hands of the Nationals, allowing five runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks in two-thirds of an inning.

    Making his first start since returning from a groin injury, Cobb surrendered two hits before Jason Vosler committed an error and the damage piled on from there. The result was 40 pitches with just 22 strikes, while the 34-year-old recorded only two outs as Washington batted around and put up a five spot. Cobb will look to get back on track next weekend in St. Louis.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Activated for Sunday's start

    Cobb (groin) was activated from the 10-day injured list and will start Sunday against the Nationals, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The 34-year-old was already confirmed as San Francisco's starter for Sunday, and he's now officially back on the active roster. Cobb spent little more than the 10-day minimum on the shelf and figures to have some minor workload restrictions in his first start back from the groin strain.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Confirmed as Sunday's starter

    Cobb (groin) will start Sunday against the Nationals, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Reports from Friday indicated that Cobb was likely to return Sunday, and that's now been confirmed by manager Gabe Kapler. He'll wind up missing just over the minimum 10 days with his strained right groin.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Two-inning side session

    Cobb (groin) threw a two-inning side session Thursday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    With Jakob Junis getting sent to the minors Friday, it would seem that things are lining up for Cobb to return to the rotation soon, although that has not been confirmed. Cobb's increased fastball velocity had him looking like he was in for a potential career year prior to suffering the groin injury.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Likely starting Sunday vs. Nats

    Cobb (groin) will likely come off the injured list to start Sunday against the Nationals, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    On the one hand, Cobb won't line up to face the Dodgers next week, but on the other hand, his fantasy managers in weekly leagues probably left him on their benches this week. Cobb completed a two-inning side session Thursday in preparation to be activated Sunday.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Bullpen session set for Thursday

    Cobb (groin) will throw a bullpen session Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The right-hander threw 30 pitches at about 70 percent intensity in a bullpen session Monday, but he's expected to ramp things up at Thursday's session. Cobb is unlikely to be activated from the 10-day injured list when first eligible Saturday, but if all goes well Thursday he may be able to return sometime next week.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Needs another bullpen session

    Cobb (groin) needs at least one more bullpen session before returning from the injured list, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Cobb threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Monday but was only throwing at 70 percent intensity. Whie the session seemingly went well, he'll need to throw at full capacity before the Giants are comfortable activating him. He's eligible to return Saturday, but it looks as though he may need at least a few extra days.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Throwing off mound

    Cobb (groin) will throw off a mound Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Cobb resumed playing catch Friday, and he'll be able to resume mound work less than a week after he landed on the 10-day injured list with a Grade 1 groin strain. He's eligible to return to game action as early as April 30, and he's made encouraging progress in his recovery so far. However, a better idea of the right-hander's status will likely be revealed based on how he feels following Monday's throwing session.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Resumes playing catch

    Cobb (groin) will begin playing catch Friday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Cobb landed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to a Grade 1 groin strain, but he's downplayed the severity of the issue. He's optimistic that he won't require a lengthy stay on the IL, and it's encouraging that he's already resumed playing catch. It's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return when first eligible April 30, but he's unlikely to be sidelined very long.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Dealing with Grade 1 strain

    Cobb said Wednesday that he's dealing with a Grade 1 groin strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Cobb was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday after exiting his start against the Mets, but he downplayed the severity of the injury Wednesday and said he's hopeful he'll be able to return after a minimal stay on the IL. The Giants haven't yet indicated who will take Cobb's place in the rotation, but the right-hander will be eligible to return as early as April 30.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Moves to injured list

    Cobb was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right adductor strain ahead of Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets.

    Cobb exited his start during Game 1 of Tuesday's twin bill after 4.1 innings and will now spend some time on the shelf. It's unclear exactly how much time the 34-year-old will miss, though he'll be eligible to be reinstated from the injured list April 30.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Dealing with groin injury

    Cobb was diagnosed with a right groin injury after leaving Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader during the fifth inning, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Cobb surrendered three runs (two earned) on six hits with four strikeouts and zero walks over 4.1 innings prior to his exit. The severity of the injury remains uncertain, and the veteran right-hander should be considered questionable for his next turn through the rotation until the Giants update his status.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Exits start with apparent injury

    Cobb was removed in the fifth inning of his start Tuesday in the first game of a doubleheader with the Mets due to an apparent injury, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. He allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and no walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings.

    After surrendering back-to-back one-out doubles, Cobb was visited on the mound by a trainer and was escorted to the dugout. Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic notes that Cobb's fastball velocity was sitting at a relatively standard 94 miles per hour in the fifth inning, and the right-hander exhibited no obvious sign of distress while he was on the mound. Expect the Giants to provide an update on his condition after the game.

    Cobb was slated to make his second start of the season Monday, but he'll be unable to do so after the game was postponed. The matchup will be made up as part of a doubleheader Tuesday, and Cobb will start in the matinee while Logan Webb starts in the second game, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
