Video: Rays' Cobb and Jays' Happ likely linked "forever"
Rays RHP Alex Cobb and Jays LHP J.A. Happ, both struck in the head with a line drive at Tropicana Field in separate games this summer, each made a triumphant return to the same mound this week.
And while the two starters were able to share their stories via text message as they made their recovery - Cobb from mild concussion and Happ from sprained right knee - they finally got to catch up in person during this weekend's series. Cobb and Happ said while they didn't know each other before, they'll likely keep in touch, and root for each other.
"We definitely have a bond that most people wont have with another person," Cobb said.
Said Happ: "I'd say that we’re going to be linked together for this possibly forever. And I think the key thing is we're both able to come back and we’re okay."
