Cobb Out for the Year

According to a couple of sources (, St. Pete Times) Alex Cobb will undergo surgery in a few days to remove a "blockage" near his right rib. To be honest, I haven't a clue what that means other than he won't be pitching again this year.

Cobb started the season with the Bulls and made two trips to Tampa Bay before sticking there on the third trip. Twelve appearances with the Bulls, 5-1, stellar ERA of 1.87. 

We were indulging ourselves with the fantasy that he might come back for a couple of games. That isn't going to happen. In fact, if the Rays want to take it easy on their starters for the rest of the year, they now have a space on their 40-man for someone like Matt Moore

Alex Torres and Andy Sonnanstine are the only Bulls starters on the 40-man. One of them could be going up soon.
