Profile: The last two seasons are a painful reminder that Tommy John surgery is anything but routine and that every rehab process is unique. Cobb tried to avoid surgery with PRP injections, but he went under the knife in May of 2015 and did not pitch in a major league game again until September of '16. The Cobb we saw last year looked little like the one that finished the '14 season, but that was to be expected with the long layoff and hurdles of his rehab process. When healthy, he follows the recipe of most Rays pitchers: fastballs up, changeups down, and keep the breaking ball in the back of the batters' minds. Unlike Jake Odorizzi, Cobb keeps the ball in the yard but struggles to keep himself on the mound, as he has yet to work even 170 innings in a season due to a variety of injuries. (Jason Collette) 

The Quick Opinion: The rust should be all off Cobb in 2017, but history tells us he will spend some amount of time on the disabled list one way or another. He has the pieces to be one of the better pitchers in baseball, but the repeated health issues limit his ceiling.
