McGee to Triple-A, Cobb to start Sunday

30

April

Rays option McGee to Triple-A, name Cobb to start Sunday.

McGee was 0-0 with a 5.14 ERA in 11 games and the Rays want him to get more regular work.

Cobb will start Sunday then be sent back to Triple-A and the Rays are expected to make another move to strengthen their bullpen. RHP Brandon Gomes, who has a 1.35 ERA and is 6-for-6 in save opportunities, would appear a strong candidate.

The Rays will also make a move to make room for 3B Evan Longoria, who will be coming off the DL.
