ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Injured Tampa Bay pitcher Alex Cobb could rejoin the depleted Rays rotation late this month.
Cobb went on the 15-day disabled list April 13 with a strained oblique in his left side. He threw off a bullpen mound before Tuesday night's game against Baltimore and throw a batting practice session in a few days.
Cobb says he didn't hold back with his pitches. He said he threw ''like it was a game situation.''
Tampa Bay starters Matt Moore and Jeremy Hellickson also are on the disabled list.
Hellickson had arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow in January and is throwing off a mound. He might return in late June. Hellickson will have a bullpen session Wednesday.
Moore had left elbow ligament replacement surgery last month and could be sidelined 12 to 15 months. He will not throw for four to five months. Moore has started range of motion of exercises.
