MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Baltimore Orioles Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Alex Cobb waited until Opening Day was just one week away, but he was rewarded for his patience has finally came to an agreement with the Baltimore Orioles as the two sides signed a 4 year deal that so far is being reported to be around $60M.

With the Rays giving Cobb a qualifying offer back at the start of the off-season, they will be rewarded with the 31st overall selection in the upcoming draft, while the Orioles will forfeit their 3rd highest pick.

Game Notes

Last night’s game with the Baltimore Orioles was rained out, giving the players their second day off over a three day span.

This afternoon, the Rays will welcome the Boston Red Sox into Port Charlotte with first pitch slated for 1:05. The game will be televised by the Fox Sports Sun crew.

The starting lineup the Rays are rolling out today could be pretty close to the one we’ll see against right-handed pitching during the regular season.
