  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Making another rehab start

    Cobb (hip/shoulder) will start for Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports.

    Cobb has made four minor-league appearances, but Saturday's will be his first at the Triple-A level. The 35-year-old threw 3.1 innings in his last outing and seems to be one or two more rehab starts away from being activated from the 60-day injured list. Cobb underwent offseason surgery on his left hip, and his rehab was complicated by a shoulder issue that popped up in April.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Covers 3.1 innings in rehab start

    Cobb (hip/shoulder) struck out three and allowed one earned run on three hits and two walks over 3.1 innings in his rehab start Monday in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League.

    Through four rehab outings between the ACL and Single-A San Jose, Cobb has posted a so-so 3.97 ERA and 1.24 WHIP but a strong 16:4 K:BB across 11.1 innings. Cobb is likely to move his minor-league assignment back to San Jose or another higher-level affiliate this weekend, and he may need just two rehab starts to get stretched out enough to the point that the Giants would consider activating him from the 60-day injured list. Cobb opened the season on the IL while he completed his recovery from offseason hip surgery, then had his rehab program slowed down in April and May due to a shoulder issue.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Next rehab outing coming Monday

    Cobb (hip/shoulder) is scheduled to make the fourth start of his rehab assignment Monday in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League, MLB.com reports.

    Cobb had made each of his first three rehab starts with Single-A San Jose, but with all levels of minor-league baseball in the midst of their All-Star break except for rookie ball, he'll head to Arizona to continue his progression. In his latest rehab outing with San Jose this past Wednesday, Cobb built up to 55 pitches and four innings while striking out four batters and giving up three runs on five hits and one walk. Including his upcoming outing Monday, Cobb will likely need to make at least two more rehab starts before the Giants would consider bringing him back from the 60-day injured list. Cobb has been on the shelf all season while recovering from offseason hip surgery but was expected to return at some point in the first half before a bout with shoulder irritation in mid-April resulted in a shutdown period that pushed back his timeline for activation.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Throws two hitless innings Friday

    Cobb (hip/shoulder) struck out five batters and allowed one walk over two innings in his rehab start with Single-A San Jose on Friday, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Cobb threw 45 pitches in his second rehab start Friday. Through two outings, he's recorded nine strikeouts while giving up just one run on two hits and a walk over four frames. Cobb should see his workload increase as he progresses through his recovery, and the 36-year-old will aim to return to the big club shortly after the All-Star break.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Two innings in first rehab start

    Cobb (hip/shoulder) struck out four and allowed one run over two innings in his first rehab start with Single-A San Jose on Sunday.

    Cobb's surgically repaired hip has seemingly been a non-issue for a while, and he was finally cleared for game action after being set back by a nerve problem in his shoulder. The right-hander will need several weeks to get built back up, but he could be ready to return from the 60-day injured list shortly after the All-Star break if he continues to make progress in his recovery from the shoulder issue while increasing his pitch count in his subsequent rehab starts.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Rehab assignment coming

    Cobb (hip/shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Friday and could begin a rehab assignment with Single-A San Jose afterward if everything goes smoothly, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Cobb has been trending in the right direction since being shut down in May due to soreness in his right (throwing) shoulder. However, he still needs to build back up to a starter's workload after spending all season on the injured list, so he likely won't return to the Giants' rotation until after the All-Star break.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Throwing live BP

    Manager Bob Melvin said Saturday that Cobb (hip/shoulder) has progressed to throwing live batting practice, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The Giants skipper added that Cobb isn't far off from beginning a rehab assignment, though he didn't give an estimate as to when the right-hander might be ready to report to a minor-league affiliate. Once the 36-year-old begin his assignment, he'll certainly require a lengthy stay in the minors after spending the first three months of the season on the injured list following offseason hip surgery in addition to a bout with soreness in his pitching shoulder.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Ups pitch count in side session

    Cobb (hip/shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday consisting of 30-to-35 pitches, MLB.com reports.

    Cobb resumed throwing off a mound Tuesday with a 25-pitch session, and he felt good enough coming out of that workout to tack on another 5-to-10 pitches to his workload a few days later. The Giants haven't indicated whether Cobb will be ready to face hitters during the upcoming week, or if he'll continue to increase the volume and intensity of his bullpen sessions. Either way, the Giants likely aren't counting on Cobb being ready to make his 2024 debut until around the All-Star break. After undergoing surgery on his left hip Oct. 31, Cobb appeared poised to beat initial projections for his recovery timeline and return from the injured list in the first or second month of the season, but those hopes were dashed after he experienced irritation in his right shoulder in April and again in May, both of which resulted in his throwing program being put on pause for multiple weeks.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Set for bullpen session

    Cobb (hip/shoulder) is expected to throw a bullpen session Tuesday in San Francisco, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Cobb has missed the entirety of the 2024 campaign while working his way back from hip surgery as well as soreness in his pitching shoulder. The 36-year-old appears to be on the cusp of taking a substantial step forward in his recovery, and if he can string together a couple successful bullpen sessions, a rehab assignment could be on the horizon. Cobb will still likely need multiple weeks to build up his activity before returning to the major-league roster at some point in July, barring any setbacks.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Clear of shoulder pain

    Cobb (hip/shoulder) said Sunday he's no longer feeling pain in his right shoulder and is "cautiously optimistic" he can throw a bullpen session during the Giants' next homestand, which begins June 10, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The veteran right-hander received a cortisone injection for his shoulder in mid-May, but what actually helped him turn a corner with his nerve discomfort was taking a nerve medication. Cobb will need significant time to build up his throwing program, and he shouldn't be expected to make his season debut until sometime in July, at least.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Gets cortisone shot for shoulder

    Cobb has been given another cortisone injection to combat his injured right shoulder, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Cobb began the season on the injured list while he continued to recover from hip surgery, but it's been elbow and shoulder issues that have plagued him since. This was the second cortisone shot he's been given for his shoulder, and the hope is that it will be more effective than the first one. Cobb will be shut down for a bit and his timetable to return is open-ended.

  • Giants' Alex Cobb: Shut down again

    Manager Bob Melvin said Saturday that Cobb (hip/shoulder) has paused his throwing program due to further complications with his right shoulder, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Cobb has now been pulled off his throwing program three times since the beginning of the season due to problems with his shoulder. An MRI of his shoulder came back negative in late April, but the Giants will likely want to take another look just to be absolutely certain the right-hander isn't dealing with some underlying issue. Melvin added that Cobb isn't close to returning following his latest shutdown, making it likely his absence extends well into June.
