2014

2013

Cobb lost out on a spot in the Rays' rotation to start the regular season, but an injury to Jeff Niemann had him called up to start on May 19 and he remained in the rotation for the rest of the year. Over 23 starts, the young right-hander went 11-9 with a 4.09 ERA and 106 strikeouts. These numbers may not blow anyone away but he really turned the corner late in the season. Over his last 11 starts he posted a 7-1 record and a 3.09 ERA that was skewed by one subpar performance. He was able to stretch later into games over that span, something he struggled with earlier in the season. All in all, Cobb will be in the mix with the stable of talented starting pitchers vying for a spot in the 2013 rotation. If he wins a spot, he is a decent late-round option, given his strong finish in 2012.

2012

Cobb mowed down Triple-A hitters to the tune of a 1.87 ERA with a 1.143 WHIP before getting a promotion to the big club. He made his first start for the Rays on May 1 giving up four runs in 4.1 innings but was optioned back to Durham immediately after the game. Cobb came up for good on May 31 and was part of a six-man rotation until he underwent season-ending surgery to repair a blockage near his rib cage. The injury is not expected to be an issue, and he should be ready to go once pitchers and catchers report for camp. Cobb features a fastball in the low-90s, a solid curve and an above-average changeup that has some splitting action to it. While with the Rays he held his own with a 3.42 ERA over nine starts, demonstrating he's ready for the big show. His ERA was aided by a 54 percent groundball rate, which helped mask a drop in his strikeout rate, albeit a small sample size with the Rays. Cobb is expected to compete for a spot in the rotation, though the Rays return all of their starters and have Matt Moore vying for a spot as well. If Cobb lands in the back of the Tampa rotation, he'd make for an interesting sleeper pick considering his success last year with the Rays and his minor league track record.

2011

Cobb turned in an outstanding season at Double-A Montgomery, winning team MVP honors. He finished the season 7-5 with a 2.71 ERA while striking out 128 batters over 119.2 innings. The organization sent him to the AFL where over seven starts (25 innings), he finished 1-3 with a 6.12 ERA. After his time there, he stated that he worked a lot on developing a cutter, which likely explains his struggles. He'll likely start in the rotation at Triple-A Durham with an eye on the bigs in late 2011. The Rays' logjam of starting pitchers could force him into the bullpen for his first taste of the big leagues.
