ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Alex Cobb could be headed for season-ending elbow ligament replacement surgery.

An MRI this week found that Cobb has a ligament tear. He received a platelet-rich-plasma injection in an attempt to avoid surgery.

''I'm still going back and forth on what I want to do,'' Cobb said before Thursday night's game against Texas. ''You try some options that are available. You always try to avoid surgery.''

Cobb will rest for a week and said he could resume light throwing in two weeks to see how the injection worked.
