Cobb feeling good, eyeing late-July/early Aug. return

RHP Alex Cobb threw his second bullpen session today and said again all went well, with plans for another on Thursday and then progressing to batting practice.

With the subsiding of other symptoms from the June 15 incident when he was hit by a line drive, Cobb said the "timetable is obviously getting shorter" for his return and he is thinking he could be back in the rotation by late July or early August.

The Rays have not set any timetable, and Cobb still has to pass MLB-mandated concussion tests, but obviously the progress he reports is good news.

Cobb threw 47 pitches on Monday and said it went well from all aspects.
