Alex Cobb, Baltimore Oriole’s Finalize Deal
UNDATED (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles' starting rotation just got stronger after the club finalized a four-year package with Alex Cobb.
The six-year veteran was the last big-name starting pitcher still available in a slow-moving free agent market. He joins recently-signed hurlers Andrew Cashner and Chris Tillman in a revamped rotation that includes holdovers Dylan Bundy and Kevin Gausman.
The 30-year-old righty was 12-10 with a 3.66 ERA in 29 starts for Tampa Bay last season. He pitched 179 1/3 innings in his first full year back after missing nearly two seasons because of Tommy John surgery.
