Rays' Cobb Elects to Have Tommy John Surgery

Robbie Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(TAMPA BAY) -- The Tampa Bay Rays will be without Alex Cobb for an indefinite period of time as the right-hander has elected to undergo Tommy John surgery to repair a "significant" tear in his elbow.

Cobb is scheduled to have the surgery performed by Dr. James Andrews. The 27-year-old received a platelet-rich plasma injection from Dr. Andrews earlier this week; however, that would be moot with a tear to his ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

"I felt like it's probably the best decision to go ahead and get the surgery done," Cobb said, according to the Tampa Bay Times. "It's a tough decision because you want to hold on to every last hope of being able to pitch this year and contribute, but I think not only for my own future but going into next season and contributing for the team next year, better not to waste any more time. Just go ahead and do it."

Cobb is hoping to return by September of 2016.

Rays Place Outfielder Desmond Jennings on the DL

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- Desmond Jennings' disappointing season has hit another snag as the Tampa Bay Rays placed the outfielder on the disabled list with left knee soreness.

Jennings hasn't played since April 25, and while he was hoping to avoid the disabled list, he is still experiencing knee pain.

"[I'm] definitely not getting better fast," Jennings said. "Treat it until it gets better."

"It's just frustrating," he added.

To make matters worse, the team isn't sure just when Jennings will be able to be healthy enough to suit up again. Manager Kevin Cash didn't rule out the he could come off the disabled list on May 11.

Now in his fourth season as a full-time starter, Jennings was off to a rough start in 2015. In 18 games, the 28-year-old Jennings is hitting .222 with no home runs, five stolen bases and two RBIs.

Rays Designate RHP Grant Balfour for Assignment

iStock/Thinkstock(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- The Tampa Bay Rays designated reliever Grant Balfour for assignment on Saturday night. The move was made following the Rays’ 9-0 loss to the New York Yankees, in which the right-hander allowed three runs, one hit and three walks in 2-3 innings of work.

Tampa Bay signed Balfour as a free agent on Jan. 23, 2014. Last season, he posted a record of 2-6 with a 4.91 ERA in 65 appearances. It was his second stint with the Rays, having previously played for them from 2007-2010.

To take Balfour’s spot on the roster, the Rays selected the contract of right-hander Brandon Gomes from Triple-A Durham.

Longoria Keeps Consecutive Games Streak Alive

Rick Yeatts/Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria won't let a bruised hip stop him from playing.

Longoria, who was hit by a pitch in the hip during Thursday night's game against the Toronto Blue Jays, started Friday night's game against the New York Yankees as the Rays' designated hitter to keep his major league-leading consecutive games played (252) streak alive.

While it's nice that Longoria is still playing, the Rays hope to have him out in the field soon.

"Hopefully a day and he'll be back out there," Rays skipper Kevin Cash said. "But he got squared up pretty good in kind of an awkward spot."

In 11 games this season, Longoria is hitting .235 with one home run, five runs scored, and a .409 on-base percentage.
