Alex Cobb News
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Cobb turned in another solid start in Monday's 3-2 win over the Braves. Cobb pitched 7 scoreless innings, allowing six hits and no walks with seven strikeouts. The veteran's underlying metrics are finally starting to reflect in his peripherals, as he is 6-6 with a 3.48 ERA over 24 starts. Things won't get easier in his next start at home against the Dodgers, but fantasy managers who trusted him in a two-start week should at least be encouraged by this performance against a tough opponent. While it will be tough, Cobb has shown to be more reliable than a good deal of other starting options this season.
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Cobb took the loss Friday, despite allowing just one run on three hits and a walk in six innings. He struck out 11 batters, which is a season high for the righty, and the first time he's reached double digits since his first start of the season. Cobb now has a 3-5 record to go with a 4.06 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 85 strikeouts in 82 innings this season across 16 starts. Fantasy managers can expect slightly better numbers going forward, though this doesn't figure to be the breakout campaign many predicted.
San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Alex Cobb was terrific on Saturday, allowing one unearned run over 7 1/3 IP in the club's 2-1 win over the Brewers. Unfortunately for Cobb, he was saddled with a no-decision, but that doesn't take away from his 5/0 K/BB and four hits allowed in his 99-pitch effort. The veteran cruised until the eighth where a leadoff Hunter Renfroe double and error allowed him to score from third after Omar Narvaez hit a sacrifice fly right afterwards to end Cobb's night. Although his 4.09 ERA and 1.29 WHIP appear underwhelming, he's pitched to a 2.92 xFIP with 68 punchouts through 70 1/3 IP. Perhaps some better luck will come his way in the second half as we enter the All-Star break.
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.
