  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Option for 2024 picked up

    The Giants exercised Cobb's (hip) $10 team million option for 2024 on Monday, Danny Emerman of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

    Cobb is expected to be sidelined for at least the first month or so of the 2024 season after having surgery last week to repair his left hip. Even with that, the Giants decided it was worth bringing the right-hander back rather than pay him a $2 million buyout. Cobb pitched well in 2023 when healthy, collecting a 3.87 ERA and 131:37 K:BB over 151.1 frames covering 28 starts.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Scheduled for surgery

    Cobb will undergo left hip surgery Tuesday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Cobb has been attempting to rehab his hip injury without going under the knife, but the team has since announced that he'll undergo a procedure Tuesday to repair his labrum and hip impingement issues, per Shea. The right-hander is expected to need around six months to return to the mound, meaning he'd miss at least the first month of the 2024 campaign. The Giants were expected to pick up his $10 million club option for the upcoming season, though this setback will certainly complicate the organization's decision.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Getting second opinion on hip

    Cobb will get a second opinion on his troublesome left hip in the coming weeks, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

    Cobb battled hip discomfort throughout the second half and finished the regular season on the 15-day injured list with what was diagnosed as a left hip impingement. He's trying the rest-and-rehab route at the moment but will seek out other possible treatment options. San Francisco holds a $10 million club option (or $2 million buyout) on the 35-year-old right-hander for the 2024 campaign.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Hip injury ends regular season

    Cobb was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with a left hip impingement.

    Cobb has been dealing with a nagging hip issue throughout the second half and it flared up on him during Tuesday's start against the Diamondbacks. He is done for the remainder of the regular season, although the Giants have not ruled out the possibility that he could return for the playoffs, should they qualify. Kyle Harrison will absorb Cobb's rotation spot.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Exits with hip injury

    Cobb was removed from his start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks with an apparent hip injury, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Cobb was grabbing at his left hip at the end of the second inning and was taken out of the game after not being able to get comfortable while warming up ahead of the third frame. The Giants will take a look at Cobb and should provide more details shortly, but fantasy managers should view Cobb as day-to-day for now.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Start pushed back to Tuesday

    Cobb had his next start pushed back to Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Cobb was originally slated to start during a doubleheader Saturday against the Rockies, but the team has opted to give him extra rest, as he's been managing a hip issue of late. The team has yet to officially announce a starter to replace Cobb, but Ross Stripling (back) was activated from the injured list Friday and appears to be a logical candidate to take the mound.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Decent in no-decision

    Cobb (hip) allowed two unearned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out two over five innings in a no-decision versus the Guardians on Monday.

    Cobb threw 47 of 79 pitches for strikes after having this start pushed back a couple of days while he dealt with hip soreness stemming from an impingement. The right-hander's lone mistake was a two-run home run by Josh Naylor in the third inning. Cobb has endured a shaky second half of the campaign but still has a 3.62 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 130:36 K:BB through 149.1 innings over 27 starts this season. He's lined up for a road start in Colorado over the weekend.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Starting Monday

    Cobb (hip) will start Monday's game against the Guardians, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Cobb has dealt with a left hip impingement over the second half of the 2023 campaign, and he recently received a cortisone injection that helped him avoid a trip to the injured list. Over his last five starts, he's posted a 5.67 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 27 innings.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Pushed back to Monday

    Cobb (hip) said he expects to return to the rotation Monday against the Guardians, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Cobb has been pitching through a left hip impingement during the second half, but he received a cortisone injection earlier this week that has helped him avoid a stay on the injured list. The veteran right-hander struggled in his last start against the Padres on Sept. 3, but in the game prior to that he worked a complete game and nearly notched a no-hitter against the Reds.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Not on weekend schedule

    Cobb (hip) is not listed among the Giants' scheduled starters for their weekend series against the Rockies, Evan Webeck of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Kyle Harrison will start Friday and it will likely be Logan Webb on Saturday, but there is a TBA listed for Sunday's series finale. Cobb threw a career-high 131 pitches in a complete game Aug. 29 against the Reds before yielding four earned runs over just three innings in his latest turn Sept. 3 at San Diego. He told reporters after that rough outing versus the Padres that he's been battling a left hip impingement since mid-June. It's possible Cobb is simply being pushed back a bit -- maybe even to fill the TBA on Sunday -- but this is a must-win series for the Giants and they're already thin on starters.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Tosses three innings

    Cobb (7-6) allowed four runs on six hits over three innings Sunday, striking out three and taking a loss against San Diego.

    Cobb tossed 58 pitches but was throwing on short rest after his 131-pitch complete game against the Reds on Aug. 29. The Padres jumped on him with three runs in the first inning before adding another in the third. It was Cobb's shortest outing of the year, and his ERA climbed to 3.74 through 26 starts. His next outing is currently projected to be a home matchup with the Rockies.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Goes distance in win

    Cobb (7-5) allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out eight over nine innings, earning the complete-game win Tuesday over the Reds.

    Cobb allowed just one batter to reach base on an error over the first 8.1 innings before giving up a walk and an RBI double. It was a monumental effort for the right-hander, who needed 131 pitches (83 strikes) for his second complete game of the season. He had starts of varying quality throughout August, allowing 21 runs over 35.1 innings over six appearances. Overall, Cobb has a 3.57 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 125:35 K:BB through 141.1 innings across 25 starts this season. He's tentatively lined up for a road start in San Diego this weekend, but given the Giants' propensity for bullpen games, it wouldn't be surprising to see Cobb pushed back a day or two after such a heavy workload.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Solid in no-decision

    Cobb did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits over five innings against the Phillies. He struck out four.

    Cobb shut out the Phillies for five innings Wednesday before surrendering back-to-back home runs to Kyle Schwarber and Trea Turner to begin the sixth. Despite the rough finish, it was an encouraging outing from Cobb, who'd struggled to a 6.54 ERA over his previous six starts. Overall, the veteran right-hander is 6-5 with a 3.74 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 117:34 K:BB across 24 starts (132.1 innings) this season. Cobb's currently in line for a home matchup with the Reds in his next outing.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Second-half struggles continue

    Cobb (6-5) took the loss Friday as the Giants fell 4-0 to Atlanta, giving up four runs on eight hits and two walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out three.

    The right-hander did keep the ball in the park, a noteworthy feat after he served up six homers in his prior three starts, but this was still another disappointing result for Cobb. He's winless in seven outings since the All-Star break, going 0-3 with a 5.73 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 27:13 K:BB through 37.2 innings, and he hasn't struck out more than four batters in any of his four trips to the mound in August. Cobb will try to turn things around in his next start, likely to come next week in Philadelphia.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Struggles versus Texas

    Cobb (6-4) allowed six runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out three over 4.1 innings to take the loss Saturday versus the Rangers.

    Cobb's winless stretch is at six starts, and he's given up at least three runs in four of them. It's been a rough second half of the campaign so far -- Cobb had a 2.91 ERA at the All-Star break, but it's up to 3.62 with a 1.37 WHIP and 110:32 K:BB through 121.2 innings over 22 starts this season amid his current struggles. The right-hander is lined up for a difficult road start in Atlanta next week.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Coughs up five runs

    Cobb allowed five runs on seven hits and a walk over 5.1 innings in Sunday's loss to Oakland. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    Cobb served up two homers in the subpar outing, both to Nick Allen. Cobb forced a season-low three whiffs Sunday. Over his last four outings, he's registered a 5.40 ERA with just 16 punchouts across 21.2 frames. The veteran righty owns a 3.30 ERA and 1.33 WHIP through 21 starts this season. Cobb's next outing is projected to be at home against the Rangers.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Works six innings Tuesday

    Cobb allowed three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out four over six innings in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Cobb was ill Monday, so he was pushed back a day in the rotation. He threw 84 pitches (53 strikes) Tuesday before turning the ball over to Ryan Walker. All three runs against Cobb came on solo home runs, making Tuesday the second time all year he's given up multiple homers. He's at a 3.05 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 104:29 K:BB through 112 innings over 20 starts this season. The right-hander is projected for a road start versus the Angels next week.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: In line to start Tuesday

    Giants manager Gabe Kapler said that he expects Cobb to start Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks after the right-hander recently dealt with an illness, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Cobb had been expected to start Monday's series opener, but since he was under the weather, the Giants opted for a bullpen game for the third consecutive day. Barring a setback leading up to Tuesday's 9:45 p.m. ET start time, Cobb looks like he'll be ready to pitch, and the Giants will be hoping to get plenty of innings out of him to help preserve a bullpen that's been overtaxed of late. Cobb has been a steady performer since returning from the 15-day injured list June 30, going 1-1 with a 2.63 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 24:7 K:BB in 27.1 innings over five starts.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Bounces back Tuesday

    Cobb allowed three hits and a walk while striking out nine over six scoreless innings in a no-decision versus the Athletics on Tuesday.

    Cobb was unfortunate to miss out on a win here, as he turned in a dominant start in response to surrendering five runs his last time out. The 35-year-old right-hander's nine strikeouts were a season high, and he kept runs off the board for the sixth time in 19 starts this season. He's at a 2.97 ERA with a 1.35 WHIP and 100:28 K:BB through 106 innings overall. Cobb is lined up for a challenging home start versus the Diamondbacks next week.
