Rays’ Cobb has tendinitis, likely to miss Opening Day

Port Charlotte, FL (SportsNetwork.com) – Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb was
diagnosed with tendinitis in his right forearm, an issue that will likely keep
the right-hander out of a projected Opening Day start.

Cobb threw three perfect innings in Tuesday’s spring training start against
Philadelphia, then underwent an MRI exam because of tightness in the forearm.
He will likely rest for a week before being re-evaluated.

The 27-year-old was given the nod to start the April 6 opener against
Baltimore. He was 10-9 with a 2.87 ERA in 27 starts last season.
