As first reported by the Tampa Bay Times‘ Marc Topkin, the Rays have scratched right-hander Alex Cobb from his start Friday against the Indians because of a small cut on his right hand that affects his grip when he throws offspeed pitches.

Matt Moore will slide from Thursday to Friday and recent call-up Alex Colome will fill in for Moore.

Cobb has been one of the best starting pitchers in baseball this season, boasting a 2.66 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 62/14 K/BB ratio through 10 starts. The cut should heal completely with treatment and time.

        Hopefully he’ll be back soon, gripping the ball as goofy as ever.
