Alex Cobb Goes Three-Plus Innings In Fourth Rehab Start

San Francisco Giants right-hander Alex Cobb (hip, shoulder) went 3 1/3 innings on Monday in his fourth minor-league rehab start in the Arizona Complex League and allowed one earned run on three hits while walking two and striking out three. Cobb has fanned 16 and walked only four in 11 1/3 innings on his rehab assignment in the rookie-level ACL and with Single-A San Jose so far, but he's likely to need several more rehab outings to get his arm built up more before being reinstated from the 60-day injured list. The 36-year-old veteran had offseason hip surgery and then suffered a setback with his right shoulder, which is why he's yet to pitch for the Giants in 2024. Cobb should have a rotation spot waiting for him in the second half when he returns and will be worth a look then in deeper fantasy leagues as a streaming option after making his first All-Star squad with San Fran in 2023.

Alex Cobb To Begin Throwing Program

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Cobb (shoulder) is set to resume a throwing program during the weekend. The 36-year-old suffered a setback in his recovery process roughly a week ago. Now, the Giants are ramping up Cobb's activities again in hopes that he can join the Giants rotation. However, Cobb is not close to being ready to pitch in the MLB again. It's good to see him throwing again, which is a step in the right direction.

Alex Cobb Shut Down From Throwing

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Cobb (hip, shoulder) has paused his throwing program and is not close to returning, per Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area. Cobb has been placed on the 60-day injured list since April 20 and has been shut down numerous times in his recovery process. Manager Bob Melvin emphasized that the 36-year-old pitcher still feels discomfort in his shoulder. This is not a good sign, as Cobb could be activated from the injured list later this month. This timetable looks unrealistic, and his absence could extend close to the All-Star Break. Cobb made 28 starts last season and showed excellent command with a 5.7% walk rate and a stellar 57.8% ground-ball rate. Cobb should remain on the waiver wire in all leagues but is worth keeping on an injured reserve spot in NL-only formats if you have room.
