Rays | Alex Cobb to throw Saturday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:44:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Cobb (forearm) will play catch from 90 feet Saturday, April 18, and he said the tendonitis in his right forearm is gone. He doesn't know when he'll resume throwing bullpen sessions.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) might not be ready to join the rotation for another month or so, and you may want to avoid him initially at FantasyScore. Matt Andriese ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could continue to see starts in the rotation as a result, although he's a lukewarm fantasy pitching option in the interim.

Rays | Alex Cobb could throw this weekend

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 11:21:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Cobb (forearm) had a good report from Dr. Koco Eaton Monday, March 23, and he could "possibly" throw over the weekend, according to manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb is expected to miss the first couple weeks of the 2015 regular season. His fantasy stock as a No. 2 starter shouldn't really chance much unless he suffers a significant setback. He'll also be a nice source of strikeouts for FantasyScore users once he's back in late April.

Rays | More on Alex Cobb

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 11:15:18 -0700

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Cobb (forearm), who will miss opening day with right forearm tendonitis, will rest for four to seven days and then be re-evaluated, according to manager Kevin Cash. The team is hoping that Cobb will only miss a couple weeks of the season, and Cobb is expecting to return to pitch in the first month of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to keep an eye on how Cobb progresses through the end of camp. Before the injury, he was just outside of consideration for a fantasy ace as a cheaper alternative to the high-upside strikeouts guys. He'll likely fall down the draft board a bit now, but he should be considered a solid No. 2 if he misses just a handful of starts in 2015.
