Alex Cobb to stay in Baltimore for 2021, per GM

Alex Cobb "will draw interest" from other clubs but the "plan is for him to stick around for 2021," per Orioles general manager Mike Elias.

Fantasy Impact

It's possible the Orioles would like to keep Cobb around for his veteran presence but he is owed $15 million--the final year of a four-year contract he signed with Baltimore back in 2018--so a trade can't be ruled out. The 33-year old veteran posted a 4.30 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 38 strikeouts over 52 1/3 innings (10 starts) in the 2020 season.

Alex Cobb ends 2020 on a high note

Alex Cobb turned in a sterling performance on Thursday against the Red Sox, giving up just one run over seven innings. He scattered six hits and two walks while striking out four. The Orioles won, 13-1, upping Cobb's record to 2-5.

Fantasy Impact

Cobb had his splitter working last night, getting eight whiffs on 18 swings. He finishes 2020 with a 4.30 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 38 strikeouts in 52 and 1/3 innings. He has the potential to be a reserve piece next year and will be drafted in the later rounds of deeper leagues.

Alex Cobb handed another loss Friday

Alex Cobb started Friday's game against the Rays, giving up two runs over six innings. He allowed four hits and three walks while striking out five. The Orioles lost, 2-1, dropping Cobb's record to 1-5.

Fantasy Impact

Cobb now has a 4.76 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and a measly 34 strikeouts in 45 and 1/3 innings. His final start will come against the Red Sox at Fenway, where he is certainly streamable.

Alex Cobb gets knocked around Friday

Alex Cobb started the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees, giving up five runs in four innings. Three of the seven hits he allowed were homers and accounted for all of the runs given up. He also added five strikeouts and a walk in the 6-0 defeat. The loss dropped his record to 1-4.

Fantasy Impact

Cobb was just activated off the IL, and shouldn't have been started against the Yankees. He now has a 5.03 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 29 strikeouts in 39 and 1/3 innings pitched. He will face the Braves at home in his next turn.

Alex Cobb (undisclosed) activated off IL

The Orioles activated Alex Cobb (undisclosed) off the 10-day IL.

Fantasy Impact

Cobb will be starting the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues for this outing.
