Alex Cobb News
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Cobb is expected to remain with the organization for the upcoming 2024 season. The organization is reportedly planning to pick up the $10 million team option on Cobb. The veteran right-hander was a reliable piece to the Giants rotation this past season. He registered a 3.87 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and a 131/37 K/BB ratio over 151 1/3 innings in 28 starts. It's worth noting that Cobb did recently undergo hip surgery, which will sideline him for six months. That being said, Cobb is likely to miss at least the first month of the 2024 season.
San Francisco Giants right-hander Alex Cobb (hip) is scheduled to have surgery on his left hip on Tuesday to address his labrum and ongoing impingement issues, according to the team. It makes him unlikely to be ready for the start of the 2024 season, as he's not expected to return to pitching for six months. Given the fact that Cobb is already 36 years old, the Giants may decide not to pick up his $10 million team option for the 2024 campaign now. Cobb had only 7.8 strikeouts per nine innings in 2023, but he was also a first-time All-Star and went 7-7 with a solid 3.87 ERA (4.01 FIP), 1.32 WHIP, 37 walks and 131 strikeouts in 151 1/3 innings over his 28 starts in his second year in the Bay Area.
The San Francisco Giants placed right-hander Alex Cobb (hip) on the 15-day injured list on Wednesday and recalled left-hander Kyle Harrison and right-hander Sean Hjelle from Triple-A Sacramento in corresponding moves. The team also placed right-hander Keaton Winn (illness) on the COVID injured list (retroactive to Sept. 19). Cobb has been dealing with a nagging left-hip injury for most of the second half of the season and had to be pulled from his start early on Tuesday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks when it flared up on him. The 35-year-old could return to start games for the Gigantes if they secure the final wild-card spot in the National League, but Cobb won't be of any use to fantasy managers in single-year leagues at this point. He finishes the 2023 season by going 7-7 with a 3.87 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 131 K's in 151 1/3 innings over 28 starts.
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Cobb had an overall successful first season with his new team, going 7-8 with a 3.73 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 23.9% strikeout rate in 28 starts and 149 2/3 innings pitched. The 35-year-old spent two short stints on the injured list, first in April with a right adductor strain and then in June with a neck strain. Cobb's groundball tendencies played well in Oracle Park, as he gave up relatively hard contact but had a career-low 1.8-degree launch angle, resulting in a 3.15 xERA and 3.15 SIERA. He also managed to get decent strikeout numbers, thanks to a 16.2% swinging-strike rate on his split-finger fastball. Cobb is currently being drafted as the 95th pitcher at pick 247 overall. Age and therefore health are concerns, but Cobb has now produced solid numbers in two consecutive seasons and has the benefit of the Giants' pitching coaches. He could be a nice value at that price if he can produce 150 innings at the level he provided in 2022.
