Rays | Alex Cobb feels great after mound session

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:30:02 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Cobb (elbow) said he felt "great" after throwing his first session off a mound Friday, April 24. It was the first time Cobb threw off a mound since leaving a spring training game March 17, and being diagnosed with elbow tendinitis.

Fantasy Tip: Barring any setbacks, expect Cobb ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) to return to the bump in approximately two weeks. It would be wise to allow him to work his way back into top form before utilizing him in FantasyScore contests and seasonal leagues. Continue to check back for updates on his recovery progress and an official word on when he'll return.

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.
