Coming off a season with five starts at the major-league level, Cobb made 29 starts spanning a career-high 179.1 innings. His 3.66 ERA looks nice, but a 4.16 FIP and 4.24 xFIP suggest it should have been half a run higher. Cobb's BABIP was a little low and his left-on-base percentage a little high, but not egregiously so. The key with Cobb is strikeouts. To maintain a mid-3.00s ERA, he needs to miss more bats, as a 17.3 percent strikeout rate won't get it done. It's a small sample, but if he can sustain what he did to close the season, Cobb's whiffs will climb. Specifically, in his last seven outings, he recorded a 2.81 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 38 strikeouts and eight walks in 38.1 innings. In those efforts, he drastically altered his pitch mix, throwing more curves while barely using his changeup. Cobb's low strikeouts should keep his price down. It's worth paying to see if his last seven games were indicative of the future.
