    导出博客文章CHICAGO -- Alex Cobbs body of work this season has been limited to only four
    starts, but its been enough for Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash to consider it
    a success.Cobb will make his final start on Tuesday against the Chicago White
    Sox. Cobb, who missed the entire 2015 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery
    last year, has pitched at least six innings in two of his four starts. He is
    coming off a no-decision when he allowed two earned runs and four hits over five
    innings Sept. 2 against the Toronto Blue Jays.Cobbs assignment Tuesday wont be
    simple as he faces off against White Sox ace Chris Sale (16-9), who manager
    Robin Ventura said Monday could still pitch twice before the regular season ends
    on Sunday.But for Cobb, Tuesdays start will be much more about the future than
    it is about the present.I think (this season) is a big success because Alex goes
    into the offseason knowing that hes back, Cash said. Obviously, theres room for
    improvement and hell get a better feel for all of his pitches and the fastball
    will probably tick up a little bit more.Alex has come a long way and to come up
    here and have success has to be a reassuring feeling that he worked his tail off
    to get back here.Cash said that Rays officials are expecting Cobb to have a
    normal offseason with no limitations and wont have to work around managed
    limitations like he has since he rejoined the Rays last month.Cobb will face a
    White Sox team that are playing out the string. Although the focus will be to
    win as much as possible with an uncertain offseason upcoming, Ventura said
    Monday that as long as its done within the confines of team goals, hes fine with
    players looking to finish strong individually.That includes Sale, who, after
    starting 14-2 has struggled throughout the second half of the season when he has
    fallen out of contention for the American League Cy Young Award. Sale is 2-4 in
    his past 10 starts and has lost two out of his past three games after
    back-to-back no-decisions.Ventura said that following Tuesdays start against the
    Rays, Sale -- who is one win shy of his career-best 17 victories -- could also
    pitch in Sundays season finale against the Twins.But depending on how the
    four-game series against the Rays goes, Ventura said he could keep his starting
    options open.He (Sale) does have that option right now (to start the final game
    of the season), Ventura said. Well get in and see how we go through it with this
    series and see where we are with those guys, see where they are physically, how
    theyre doing.I dont plan on anything necessarily changing. It could change in a
    couple days, and well see how that goes and make adjustments as we go along.
    Weve got enough guys here to make it through, thats not the issue.
