Rays' Cobb expected to miss opener due to forearm injury

The Associated Press

DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb has tendinitis in his right forearm and is expected to miss his planned opening-day start against Baltimore on April 6.

The Rays made the announcement Wednesday, a day after the 27-year-old right-hander was removed after throwing three perfect innings in a 5-3 win over Philadelphia. Cobb had an MRI after the game.

Cobb felt tightness in the bullpen before the game, but his arm loosened once he took the mound. He had been scheduled to pitch four innings.
