Alex Cobb set to rejoin Rays Monday, make first start next weekend

RHP Alex Cobb came through Saturday's final Tommy John surgery rehab start well and was to meet the team in Boston Sunday night, with plans for his first since his September 2014 this weekend, likely Saturday, at home vs. Toronto.

"I think he felt good by his results,'' manager Kevin Cash said. "It was good to go out there and kind of command the baseball the way he knows that's he able to do.''

Cobb has to be activated from the DL today since his rehab assignment expired, so RHP Steve Geltz was sent back to Triple-A Durham after a one-day stint, and a shaky one-inning appearance, to provide bullpen coverage.

OF Mikie Mahtook was sent down after Saturday's game to make room for Geltz, and will return in either 10 days or after the Bulls' season ends....
