Rays pitcher Alex Cobb (tendinitis) expected to miss Opening Day
Cobb left Tuesday's start against the Phillies after three perfect innings despite being slated to throw four innings. After the game, the 27-year-old said he was not worried about the tightness.
"If it was something I was really concerned of, I probably wouldn't have thrown today at all," Cobb said. "This was something I knew about."
Last season, Cobb finished with a 10-9 record, a 2.87 ERA and 149 strikeouts in 166.1 innings.
The Rays open the regular season on April 6 against the Baltimore Orioles.
