Cobb hurled three innings against Arizona on Saturday, allowing five runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three. He did not factor in the decision.
The right-hander breezed through his first two innings, allowing only one hit. However, things fell apart for Cobb in the third frame, as he gave up six singles, a double and a walk while watching five Diamondbacks cross the plate. He has given up 10 earned runs over his past 10 innings after a strong run during which he yielded only one earned run over 17 frames. The inconsistent play has resulted in a subpar 4.98 ERA, though Cobb's 52:14 K:BB on the season is more promising. He's tentatively slated to face Detroit at home in his next start Friday.
Cobb (4-2) won Saturday's 12-5 game over against Seattle, going seven innings and allowing five runs on three hits and a walk with six strikeouts.
Cobb gave up all five runs in the fourth inning, headlined by a Jake Fraley grand slam, and fell behind 5-1 but Los Angeles was able to storm back with 11 unanswered runs. Cobb dominated outside of the that inning, retiring every other batter he faced with six strikeouts. He has gone seven innings in his last two starts and has picked up wins in three straight.
Cobb (3-2) picked up the win Saturday, allowing three hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory over the A's. He struck out eight.
The right-hander only fired 58 of 101 pitches for strikes, but Cobb mostly avoided ball fours and got plenty of strike threes in his longest outing, and second quality start, of the season. He's won both his starts since returning to the rotation from the IL, and Cobb will carry a 3.78 ERA and 43:12 K:BB through 33.1 innings into his next turn.
Cobb (2-2) allowed a run on four hits and struck out four over five innings to earn the win in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader versus Minnesota.
The right-hander missed two starts due to a blister, but he was effective in his return. Cobb threw 44 of his 57 pitches for strikes. The only run against Cobb came on a sacrifice fly in the second inning. This was the second time in six starts he did issue a walk. The 33-year-old carries a 4.78 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 35:10 K:BB across 26.1 innings. His next start lines up for next week versus Texas.
Cobb (finger) was reinstated from the injured list ahead of his scheduled start in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Twins.
Cobb wound up missing two turns in the rotation due to a blister. He struggled to a 5.48 ERA in five starts prior to the injury, but his 2.52 FIP and 2.64 xFIP told a very different story and suggested that he'd have far better results if not for a .431 BABIP. His 30.4 percent strikeout rate is nearly double his 16.8 percent mark from 2020, while his 55.2 percent groundball rate is his best mark since 2014. Jose Quijada was optioned in a corresponding move.
Cobb (blister) will be activated from the injured list to start the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Twins, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
The righty will make his first start since May 4, when he put together his best outing of the season by firing five scoreless innings during which he recorded eight strikeouts, albeit while issuing five walks as well.
Cobb (blister) is making progress and could come off the injured list later this week, the Associated Press reports.
Cobb hasn't pitched since May 4, when he allowed two unearned runs across five innings and struck out eight batters against Tampa Bay. The right-hander subsequently went on the 10-day IL with the blister issue, which he believes will require management through the remainder of the season, per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. Cobb has blown away his previous career trend with a superb 30.4 percent strikeout rate this season, though his 5.48 ERA is far less promising. However, hitters have logged an absurd .431 BABIP against him, so Cobb's 2.64 xFIP provides reason for optimism if he is able to successfully manage the blister.
Cobb was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with blister on his right middle finger. The move is retroactive to May 5.
The 33-year-old lined up to start Monday but will now be on the injured list until at least next weekend. It's unclear when the blister first surfaced, and Cobb pitched well during his last outing Tuesday with only two unearned runs given up across five frames. According to Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times, Jose Suarez could be in the mix to take the mound Monday after being scratched from his scheduled start at Triple-A on Saturday.
Cobb (1-2) was charged with the loss Tuesday against Tampa Bay as a result of allowing two unearned runs on two hits and five walks across five innings. He struck out eight.
Cobb struggled with his control in the outing, walking five and throwing only 53 of 99 pitches for strikes. Still, it was the Los Angeles defense that was primarily responsible for both runs that scored against him. A pair of first-inning Angels errors led to an unearned run, and another miscue in the fifth frame led to the second tally against the right-hander. Cobb was able to avoid additional damage by striking out eight batters and allowing only two hits (both singles). He lowered his season ERA to 5.48 ERA in the outing, and he now boasts a 31:10 K:BB across 21.1 frames. Cobb's next start could come Monday at Houston.
Cobb allowed three earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out two across two innings Wednesday against the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision.
Cobb couldn't put hitters away and had several lengthy at-bats, which resulted in him being pulled after two innings and 51 pitches of subpar work. This was his second consecutive start in which he failed to escape the third inning, and he now has a 7.16 ERA across 16.1 frames for the season. His indicators suggest that he deserves better results -- he has a 23:5 K:BB and 2.34 FIP -- so he'll look to turn things around in his next outing, which is currently projected for Wednesday against Tampa Bay.
Cobb (1-1) was charged with the loss Thursday against the Astros after surrendering five runs (four earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out four across 2.2 innings.
Cobb got off to a rocky first inning, loading the bases on back-to-back singles and a walk with two outs. Luckily, the 33-year-old slammed the door by striking out Kyle Tucker to end the frame. Things proved tougher in the second inning, during which Cobb allowed the Astros to put three runs on the board, including giving up a triple to Myles Straw and walking a run in. It was a disappointing outing after the right-hander's 10-strikeout showing in his last start, but Cobb will look to bounce back when he takes the mound again Wednesday at Texas.
Cobb (1-0) allowed three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out 10 over 5.2 innings in a win over the Royals on Monday.
Cobb had been pushed back a day due to a rainout, which may have been a blessing as Cobb was said to be managing a blister at the end of last week. He showed no ill effects Monday, getting 19 swinging strikes on 97 pitches. The right-hander has followed in Dylan Bundy's path and is off to a great start with the Angels after finally getting out of Baltimore. With Shohei Ohtani (finger) looking unlikely to start a game on the mound this week, per Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register, Cobb projects to take the ball this weekend at home against Minnesota.
Cobb won't make his scheduled start Sunday after the Angels-Blue Jays game was postponed due to inclement weather in Dunedin, Fla.
The two teams plan to make up the game as part of a split doubleheader Aug. 10 at Angel Stadium. According to Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times, the Angels plan to push all six of their rotation members back a day in the pitching schedule as a result of the rainout, so Cobb will start Monday's series opener in Kansas City.
Cobb, who is scheduled to start Sunday against the Blue Jays, was dealing with a blister earlier in the week, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
At this point, Cobb is not in danger of missing Sunday's start, but it's worth noting since blisters can re-occur. Cobb was originally scheduled to start Saturday but was pushed back to give his blister an extra day to heal.
Cobb will start Sunday against the Blue Jays, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Cobb will take the spot of Shohei Ohtani (blister), who was scratched from his start Sunday. He'll look to build on a solid Angels debut in which he allowed three earned runs and struck out seven across six innings.
Cobb allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out seven over six innings in a no-decision against the White Sox on Saturday.
He could not slow down the hit machine that is Yermin Mercedes. However, Cobb limited the damage from the rest of the lineup and provided the Angels with some much-needed length after the bullpen covered six innings in relief of Andrew Heaney on Friday. The 33-year-old righty should still be considered a high-risk fantasy option next week in his projected matchup against the Blue Jays at TD Ballpark in Dunedin, Florida.
Cobb pitched three innings in Wednesday's Cactus League contest against Cleveland, allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out four.
According to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com, Cobb's velocity hit 94 mph during the exhibition outing, a slight bump over his average velocity last season. That bodes well for the right-hander's attempt to bounce back after a trio of subpar campaigns. Cobb appears in line for the final spot in the Angels' six-man rotation, but his fantasy value is limited by an unexciting skillset that includes a lack of strikeouts.
Cobb visited Driveline Baseball over the offseason and worked on some mechanical changes, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
The Angels need the 33-year-old to be something other than he's been thus far in his 30s, as he's struggled to a 5.10 ERA over the last three seasons. Driveline has a deserved reputation for making pitchers suddenly more productive, though a trip there doesn't guarantee anyone's problems will be instantly solved. The report perhaps makes Cobb more interesting than most pitchers his age with his recent track record, but he'll have to demonstrate a new level of performance on the field before he becomes a truly compelling fantasy option.
The Angels acquired Cobb in a trade with the Orioles on Monday, Dan Connolly and Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic report.
The exact terms of the trade remain unknown, but Baltimore is unlikely to get a major prospect in return, assuming the Angels are covering a portion of the $15 million Cobb is owed in 2021. Over his three seasons in Baltimore, Cobb didn't emerge as the frontline starter the Orioles had hoped they were getting after inking him to a four-year, $57 million deal in the 2017-18 offseason. In addition to missing extended time due to injuries, Cobb wasn't particularly effective when he was healthy enough to pitch, submitting a 5.10 ERA (5.22 FIP), 1.42 WHIP and 6.1 K/9 in 41 starts for Baltimore. With his new organization, the 33-year-old right-hander won't be assured a rotation spot, as the Angels already have Dylan Bundy, Shohei Ohtani, Andrew Heaney, Griffin Canning and Jose Quintana on hand as starting candidates.
Cobb (2-5) picked up the win in Thursday's 13-1 rout of the Red Sox, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over seven innings, He struck out four.
The right-hander gave up his only run in the fifth inning, at which point the O's already held an 8-0 lead. Cobb finished the season on a high note, delivering quality starts in each of his final two outings, and with one year remaining on his current contract his 4.30 ERA and 38:18 K:BB through 52.1 innings should keep him in Baltimore's rotation plans to begin 2021.
