Alex Cobb is making his fifth start since returning from May 2015 Tommy John elbow surgery.

September

UPDATE, 6:43: Kiermaier said the wrist was better today but he still felt some soreness when taking swings so he is out again, but available to run or play defense late. He is extra disappointed because his parents are in town from Indiana to see him play. ... Nick Franklin remains idled due to the his previous hamstring strain but hopeful of returning before Sunday either as the DH or in the OF.

White Sox lineup:
Eaton rf
Anderson ss
Cabrera lf
Abreu 1b
Morneau dh
Frazier 3b
Avila c
Sanchez 3b
Garcia cf
Sale p

 

DEVELOPING: Having lost four straight and eight of their last 10, the Rays will take on the White Sox tonight with Alex Cobb on the mound for the last time this season.

CF Kevin Kiermaier, who sat out Monday due to soreness in his left wrist after being hit by a pitch Sunday, is not in the lineup again, though they may have as much to do with the Sox starting lefty ace Chris Sale.

Cobb is making his fifth start since returning from May 2015 Tommy John elbow surgery, and admits he is looking forward to the break, having been throwing for pretty much 15 months straight.

He wants to finish on a good note, especially after lasting only 1 1/3 innings in his last start against the Yankees.

Here is the Rays lineup:

Forsythe DH,
Dickerson lf,
Longoria 3b,
Miller 1b,
Mahtook cf,
Casali c,
Ramirez ss,
Shaffer rf,
Querecuto 2b,
Cobb p
