Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Cobb (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Sunday, July 17, instead of making his third rehab start for Class A Charlotte. He left his most recent start due to fatigue Monday, July 11. According to manager Kevin Cash, Cobb will work on mechanics that "have been a little bit out of whack."
Fantasy Tip: Cobb, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, has tossed just 1 2/3 combined innings through his first two rehab outings. The 28-year-old right-hander should remain stashed in all formats, although he might not be able to make a significant fantasy contribution until 2017.

"Today was a lot better pitching-wise," Cobb said. "My pitches were sharper. My location was better."
Fantasy Tip: It's possible that Cobb can round himself into form in three more rehab outings, but this might tack on another outing to his rehab assignment. Keep him stashed in all formats.
