Description: Rays RHP Alex Cobb (oblique) is targeting late May or early June for his return, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: Cobb suffered a strained oblique last week and was given a timetable of 4-6 weeks. He's not going to make it back by the short end of that timeline.
 
4/13/2014 6:09:00 PM
Description: The Rays expect to be without RHP Alex Cobb for four-to-six weeks due to his strained left oblique. SOURCE: Marc Topkin, Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: Cobb has a 1.89 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP in 19 innings this season. We won't see him back until mid-May at the earliest. Erik Bedard will take the open spot in Tampa Bay's rotation.
 
4/13/2014 10:50:00 AM
Description: Rays right-hander Alex Cobb strained his left oblique Saturday in a win against Cincinnati. He's already been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: That opens up a spot in the rotation for Erik Bedard, who was recently called up from Triple-A Durham. Cobb (1-1, 1.89 ERA) will be eligible to return on April 28th, though it's doubtful he'll be able to recover that quickly.
 
4/12/2014 10:07:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay starter Alex Cobb was dominant in Saturday's 1-0 win over Cincinnati (7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 5 K's).
Insight: Cobb (1-1, 1.89 ERA) threw all zeros for the second straight outing. If Cobb keeps this up, he'll be a no-brainer for the All-Star team in a few months. His next start is against the Yankees (6-6).
 
4/6/2014 6:10:00 PM
Description: Rays right-hander Alex Cobb delivered seven shutout innings Sunday in a loss to Texas.
Insight: Cobb surrendered three hits and one walk over 97 pitches. Tampa Bay didn't score in this game, which meant Cobb (0-1, 3.00 ERA) had to settle for a no-decision.
 
10/3/2013 9:35:00 AM
Description: Alex Cobb guided the Rays to victory Wednesday with a dominating performance against the Indians.
Insight: Cobb wasn't fooling many hitters (he allowed eight hits) but he kept the Indians off the scoreboard and that's all that matters. The Rays haven't set their rotation yet for the Division Series but we're guessing Cobb will pitch in one of Tampa Bay's two home games (Games 3 and 4).
 
Hot9/26/2013 10:22:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay righthander Alex Cobb (7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 4 Ks) was excellent Thursday in a win over the Yankees.
Insight: Cobb hasn't missed a beat since his return from a concussion (5-1, 2.41 ERA in his last nine starts). The Rays would be crazy not to start him in the postseason, assuming they are able to advance past the Wild Card round.
 
9/21/2013 4:30:00 PM
Description: Rays starter Alex Cobb held the Orioles to just one run in 8 1/3 innings Saturday at Tropicana Field.
Insight: He might have gotten the shutout if not for a Chris Davis bloop triple that left fielder David DeJesus lost in the lights. Tampa Bay's magic number to clinch the American League Wild Card is eight games.
 
9/16/2013 10:36:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay righthander Alex Cobb (8 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 10 K's, 1 BB) was excellent Monday in a win over Texas.
Insight: The win gives Tampa a one-game cushion in the AL Wild Card race. Cobb is 3-1 with a 3.05 ERA since making his return from the disabled list in mid-August.
 
8/20/2013 10:51:00 PM
Description: Rays starter Alex Cobb improved to 8-2 Tuesday with a win over Baltimore.

7/13/2013 5:59:00 PM
Description: According to Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times, Rays pitcher Alex Cobb (concussion) will throw live batting practice before Sunday's game.
Insight: Smith said that the Rays scheduling Cobb for live BP means he has passed all concussion tests. The right-hander hasn't pitched since taking a liner off his head on June 15. Cobb will likely need a couple of rehab starts, so he's probably aiming for a return in early August.
