Cobb (6-5) allowed two runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out six over seven innings in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

He's now delivered three straight quality starts and seven on the year. Cobb threw 73 of 113 pitches for strikes, one start after tossing a season-high 116 pitches, but with two off days coming up for the Rays over the next week the right-hander will get some extra rest before he takes the mound again Tuesday on the road against the Pirates.

Cobb allowed three runs -- just two earned -- on eight hits and two walks while striking out three batters during Thursday's loss to Detroit. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

While limiting Detroit to two earned runs stands out, Cobb's underwhelming strikeout totals continue to limit his fantasy upside. In fact, with a 5-5 record, 4.17 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 6.3 K/9, the 29-year-old righty is barely moving the fantasy needle in any category. It isn't out of the question to just utilize Cobb against favorable opponents going forward. He projects to face the Reds at home in his next start.

Cobb will make his next start Thursday against the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cobb was originally scheduled to start Wednesday's contest against the Blue Jays, but he'll have his start pushed back a day in order to accommodate the arrival of Jacob Faria, who was recalled from Triple-A to fill in for Matt Andriese (hip) in the rotation. The 29-year-old, who currently owns a 4.29 ERA across 79.2 innings, will now matchup against Jordan Zimmerman in the series opener.

Cobb (5-5) allowed one run on four hits and a walk over six innings while striking out five in Friday's 13-4 win over the A's.

EDGE Analysis

The Rays scored three runs in the first inning and never looked back, giving Cobb plenty of cushion and letting him pound the strike zone all night. He threw 65 of 96 pitches for strikes en route to just his fourth quality start of the year, bouncing back nicely from a disaster against the Mariners in his last outing. Cobb will next take the mound Wednesday on the road against the Blue Jays.

Cobb (4-5) gave up nine earned runs on 14 hits and two walks over five innings in Saturday's 9-2 loss to the Mariners. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander endured what was his worst start of the season against a Seattle offense that seems to finally be snapping out of a prolonged funk. Cobb got into trouble early by giving up three runs in the second after being staked to a 1-0 lead, and he continued to pitch to heavy contact the rest of the way. A pair of home runs surrendered to Nelson Cruz and Mike Zunino put a cap on his forgettable outing, one that included season highs in hits and runs surrendered. The 29-year-old will look to bounce back in a Wednesday home start versus the White Sox.

Cobb allowed one run on six hits while walking three and striking out six over five innings for a no-decision in Sunday's 8-6 win over the Twins in 15 frames.

EDGE Analysis

It was nice to see from Cobb after he had allowed at least three runs in each of his last three outings. The 102-pitch effort lowered the right-hander's ERA to 3.67 on the year. His 6.4 K/9 isn't all that impressive, but his 12.3 percent HR/FB has hurt his overall numbers, and his 48.4 percent groundball rate should serve him well in the long run. Cobb should be started against the struggling Mariners in his next outing.

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.
