Orioles' Alex Cobb: Moves past blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (finger) completed a simulated game Thursday, Joe Trezza of reports.

Cobb developed a blister earlier in the week that resulted in him being scratched from his scheduled Grapefruit League outing, but his ability to face hitters in a controlled setting implies that the affected finger isn't much of a concern. With the MLB regular season having now been pushed back at least two weeks, Cobb's blister should be completely healed by the time the Orioles reconvene for workouts.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Scratched with blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb was scratched from his scheduled start Thursday against the Twins due to a blister, Roch Kubatko of reports.

Blisters tend to come with uncertain timelines, but the Orioles don't seem particularly concerned with this one. Cobb will pitch in a simulated game instead, and manager Brandon Hyde indicated the right-hander would be able to pitch through the issue if it occurred during the regular season. It doesn't sound as though Cobb is under any serious risk of opening the season on the injured list.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Ready for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (hip) will not have any restrictions when spring training begins for Orioles pitchers and catchers Tuesday, Zachary Silver of reports.

Cobb underwent hip surgery in June but will not be limited for spring training according to manager Brandon Hyde. Despite throwing only 12.1 innings and accruing a 10.95 ERA in 2019, Cobb is expected to open the season as the team's No. 2 starter.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: No complications with surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brandon Hyde confirmed Sunday that Cobb (hip) underwent successful surgery earlier in the weekend, Rich Dubroff of reports.

The procedure officially spells an end to Cobb's season after he made three unproductive starts for the Orioles. surrendering 15 runs over 12.1 innings in those outings. Baltimore would surely like a mulligan after signing Cobb to a four-year, $57 million contract last March with the expectation that he would serve as the staff ace. Cobb, who is expected to be back to full strength by next spring, has gone 5-17 with a 5.36 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 6.0 K/9 over 31 starts the past two seasons.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb will undergo season-ending surgery to address a hip impingement, Joe Trezza of reports.

Cobb made just three starts before landing on the injured list with a back injury. It's unclear when the hip issue occurred. He'll finish the season with a 10.95 ERA in just 12.1 innings of work.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Nearing return to rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Still dealing with soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb is getting his back examined in Baltimore, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Heads to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Crushed again by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Smashed for first loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (0-1) allowed nine runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out two over 2.2 innings in a 16-7 loss to the Twins on Saturday.

Cobb wasn't fooling the Twins, as he generated just four swinging strikes while allowing three home runs. The 31-year-old was making his second start of the season but permitted three runs in the first, one in the second, and five more in the third. Cobb has a bloated 11.88 ERA and a 1.92 WHIP, and he'll look to rebound Friday in a rematch in Minnesota.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Activated for Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (back) was activated off the 10-day injured list ahead of Friday's start against the Twins, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Confirmed as Friday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (back) has been confirmed as the Orioles' starting pitcher for Friday's game against the Twins, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

The Orioles will still have to activate Cobb from the 10-day injured list Friday, but that's merely a formality. Cobb completed a bullpen session Tuesday with no renewed discomfort and should be in store for a normal workload in his first start since April 4.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Expected to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (back) is on track to start Friday's game against Minnesota, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Cobb threw a bullpen Tuesday, and the session obviously went well, considering skipper Brandon Hype expects the lefty to be activated from the injured list in time for Friday's matchup. Cobb turned in a decent outing prior to suffering the injury, allowing two runs while striking out four over 5.2 frames against the Yankees.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Facing hitters Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (back) is scheduled to throw a live batting practice session Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

The activity should offer the Orioles a gauge of Cobb's health heading into the weekend, when he could be activated to start one of the team's three games at home versus Minnesota. Cobb was able to play catch over the weekend without experiencing any issues related to his lumbar strain and shouldn't need a rehab assignment before returning from the 10-day injured list.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Could be activated next weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (back) won't be activated from the 10-day injured list when first eligible Tuesday, but manager Brandon Hyde suggested the right-hander could be ready to rejoin the rotation for next weekend's series with the Twins, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

The Orioles were pleased with how Cobb's back responded to playing catch off flat ground Saturday, but he'll need to complete a bullpen session before receiving the green light to return from the IL. Once Cobb is activated, John Means or Dan Straily would seemingly be most at risk of losing a rotation spot.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: May not return when eligible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb said his back is improving but isn't sure he'll be ready to return from the injured list Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Manager Brandon Hyde said Wednesday that Cobb should be ready when first eligible next week, but that doesn't appear to be a sure thing. According to Rich Dubroff of, the 31-year-old isn't completely pain free but is hoping to test things out by playing catch Saturday.

Orioles' Alex Cobb: Could return when first eligible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Brandon Hyde said Cobb (back) should be ready to come off the injured list when first eligible April 16, Rich Dubroff of reports.

Cobb landed on the shelf prior to his previous start with a lumbar strain, but it doesn't sound like the issue will force him to miss much time. Assuming the southpaw avoids any setbacks during the next week, he should be cleared to rejoin the rotation against the Rays on April 16. In his lone start this season, Cobb allowed two runs while striking out four in 5.2 innings against the Yankees.

This is a lower-back injury and it's the first we've heard of Cobb dealing with the injury. He was supposed to start Wednesday against the A's. Rich Dubroff of noted that it could be Josh Rogers or Yefry Ramirez who gets the call from Triple-A to make that start. The move is retroactive to April 6.
