Cobb joins Matt Moore on the DL

Joe Robbins

The Rays placed Alex Cobb on the 15-day disabled list today with a left oblique strain. Reliever Jeff Beliveau was recalled from Triple-A Durham to join the bullpen.

This means Cesar Ramos and Erik Bedard are rotation members for at least the next two weeks. The good news for Cobb is that the injury isn't elbow or shoulder related. Though, Rays fans cringe when hearing "oblique strain" - Evan Longoria missed a month with a strained oblique in 2011.

He was sent back to St. Pete for an MRI, so presumably we'll know more soon.
