Rays pitcher Alex Cobb has been released from Bayfront Medical Center this afternoon. Cobb was admitted after being struck in the head with a line drive in the Top of the fifth inning in yesterday's game against the Royals.
The right-hander spent the night at Bayfront Medical for observation, after suffering a mild concussion and a cut on his ear, which 10 News was told by Cobb's family and friends he received stitches for.
Cobb wrote on Twitter this morning "Want to say thank you to our All-Star trainer Ron Porterfield and the doctors @bayfront hospital. Woke up with only a minor headache today."
The 25-year old has been placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list, and the Rays have no timetable for his return to the mound.
