SP - SF - IL15
Giants SP Alex Cobb was placed on the 15-day IL with a left hip impingement.
Cobb has dealt with left hip issues since the All-Star break and had the issue flare up Tuesday. Cobb will not return during the regular season, but could be healthy enough to return in the playoffs if the Giants earn a wild card spot.
Cobb allowed just three hits and one walk while striking out two over 79 pitches on Monday against the visiting Guardians.
In addition to the strong outing, Cobb's season-long numbers remain solid with a 3.62 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and a 3.61 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Fantasy managers can continue to rely on Cobb for consistent production down the stretch.
Alex Cobb will return to the mound on Monday against the Guardians.
Cobb had his last scheduled start pushed back after receiving a cortisone injection in his hip. He has posted a strong 3.74 ERA across 144 1/3 innings so far this season.
Alex Cobb had a rough outing against the Padres, lasting only three innings while giving up six hits and four earned runs.
With a 3.74 ERA and 1.32 WHIP on the season, this performance will likely hurt Cobb's fantasy value going forward. However, his 8.0 K/9 and solid strikeout-to-walk ratio of 3.66 suggest that he still has some potential for strikeouts and could bounce back in his next start. Fantasy owners should monitor his performance closely before making any decisions.
Alex Cobb was in complete control on Tuesday, tossing a gem against the Reds, allowing just one hit and one earned run while striking out eight over nine dominant innings.
This outstanding performance further solidifies Cobb's fantasy value, as he now boasts a 3.57 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and an impressive 8.0 K/9 through 25 starts this season. With a strong strikeout-to-walk ratio and a low BABIP, Cobb has proven to be a reliable option for fantasy owners and should continue to be a valuable asset moving forward.
