Cobb (4-4) allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks across 7.1 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Angels. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb gave up a pair of solo home runs on the first inning, but he cruised through six more frames before allowing another two runs with one out in the eighth. He struggled to throw strikes at times and tied a season high in free passes, one of which came around to score. While the late decline hurt Cobb's bottom line, this was the first time he had allowed more than three runs in over a month and ended a streak of three consecutive quality starts. He still owns a respectable 3.82 ERA and will look to get back on track Sunday against the Twins.

Cobb (4-3) allowed three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out seven batters over seven innings during Wednesday's win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb has now allowed three runs or fewer in each of his past five starts and improved to a 3.67 ERA and 1.24 WHIP for the campaign. Additionally, Wednesday's seven punchouts were his highest mark during that five-game stretch. He's currently sporting a career-low 6.1 K/9, so there is potential that he begins to strikeout more batters going forward. Cobb will look to continue his strong work on the mound against the Angels next week at Tropicana Field.

Cobb (3-3) allowed four runs (none earned) on four hits and three walks over 6.1 innings in a win over Boston on Friday. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb was cruising in this contest until a couple of defensive miscues in the seventh inning led to his exit. After not having a single quality start in his first five outings, Cobb has now thrown three straight and has lowered his ERA to a very respectable 3.10. The 29-year-old righty will take the mound again on Wednesday at Cleveland.

Cobb (2-3) tossed eight innings of one-run ball in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Blue Jays, giving up four hits and two walks with three strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb turned in arguably his best start of the season in this one, but a run-scoring single in the sixth and a solo homer in the seventh doomed him to a loss, as his club couldn't muster any offense of their own. His strikeout stuff wasn't exactly working Sunday, but the righty pitched to contact effectively and induced 11 groundouts in addition to numerous weak fly balls. Cobb has now allowed just four earned runs over his last 19 innings to lower his ERA to a respectable 3.56, and he will look to bounce back from this tough-luck loss Friday against the Red Sox.

Cobb (2-2) fired six scoreless innings in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Marlins, giving up four hits and two walks while also recording a pair of strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb turned in his most encouraging performance to date, firing 61 of 92 pitches for strikes and allowing just one extra-base hit to the six batters that reached safely against him. He also avoided the long ball altogether for the second straight start after having surrendered at least one home run in his first four trips to the mound this season. Tuesday's effort brought the 29-year-old right-hander's ERA down to 3.86 and he'll look to continue his winning ways in a home start versus the Blue Jays next Sunday.

Cobb (1-2) allowed three runs (two earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings to come away with a no-decision in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

After giving up at least four runs in each of his previous three starts, Wednesday's effort represents progress of a sort for Cobb. He was still inefficient, throwing only 54 of 94 pitches for strikes, but his solid 21:6 K:BB through 29 innings isn't reflected in his 4.66 ERA and 1.52 WHIP. He'll look for a better result Tuesday on the road against the Marlins.

Cobb will get the start Wednesday against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander has been uneven through four starts this season, allowing four earned runs in each of his last three outings after getting the win in his first start. His ERA has ballooned to 4.88 and his WHIP has risen to 1.42. He'll be opposed by Dylan Bundy on the mound Wednesday at Camden Yards.

Cobb (1-2) allowed four runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out seven across six innings to take the loss Friday against the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Although Cobb had a solid strikeout day, he allowed too many baserunners, and he was unable to hold onto the 3-1 lead he was given in the third inning, leading to his second loss of the season. He's yet to throw a quality start in any of his four outings, and he'll need to string together a couple solid starts before he can be fully trusted in fantasy lineups. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Orioles.

Cobb allowed four runs on 11 hits (one homer) while walking one and striking out none over five innings for a no-decision in Sunday's 7-5 loss to the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Four of the 11 hits he allowed were extra-base hits. Cobb threw 63 of his 93 pitches for strikes and saw his ERA rise to 4.50 on the year. After missing mostly all of 2016 because of Tommy John surgery, Cobb is clearly still shaking off the rust, and his zero punchouts is certainly a cause for concern after he struck out seven against the Yankees his last time out. The right-hander has the tools to be a solid fantasy starter, but until he shows more consistency, we wouldn't blame you for being cautious with the matchups.

Cobb (1-1) allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and one walk across 7.1 innings during Monday's 8-1 loss to the Yankees. He struck out seven.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb wasn't quite as effective as he was in his first start against New York and allowed four extra-base hits which accounted for all of the runs on his ledger. He still threw the ball relatively well, hitting the strike zone at a 66 percent clip and piling up seven punchouts after recording just four in the previous meeting. Despite this rough outing, it was a positive sign to see Cobb go deep into the game and throw over 100 pitches for the first time since 2014. He will take a still respectable 3.46 ERA into Sunday's matchup with the Red Sox.
