— Player Notes
Advice: Cobb is now expected to resume his minor league rehab assignment Friday in a start for the Charlotte Stone Crabs. The right-hander was pulled back a week ago due to arm fatigue, and he's probably going to have to prove his health over three or four more minor league starts before the Rays consider him an option for the major league rotation. Cobb underwent Tommy John surgery last May.

Advice: Cobb was pulled off his rehab assignment last week due to arm fatigue. It's something that's fairly common when a pitcher is coming back from a major operation, so there shouldn't be much worry. However, he's probably not going to be an option for the Rays' rotation until late August, at the earliest. It's unclear he'll do much for fantasy owners this season.

Advice: Cobb was lifted from a rehab start last week at High-A Charlotte due to arm fatigue and the Rays want to give him time on the side to work through that. They believe it to be a mechanical issue. "We felt this was the right time to do it," manager Kevin Cash said. "We want to make sure he gets his full rehab and can work through the process at his pace a little bit." There is currently no timetable for Cobb's return from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

Advice: And he'll throw another one Wednesday before possibly facing live hitters again. Cobb was pulled from a rehab start last week at High-A Charlotte after experiencing fatigue. He's still trying to rebuild strength following Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and clearly has no timetable for activation at this point.
