Alex Cobb allowed on run on three hits and two walks with 12 strikeouts over eight innings in the win over the Brewers Tuesday.

Cobb reached the 12 strikeout mark for the third time in his young career. He is one of just three pitchers in Rays franchise history to do so in their first 70 career games. His next start will be a must see TV matchup against the A's and Jeff Samardzija in Oakland on Monday.

Yunel Escobar has been ejected for the third time this season. 

Escobar was ejected for arguing strike one. Yes, you read that right, strike one. It was his third ejection of the season and with two months remaining, he should be good for one or two more. He should be in the lineup on Wednesday.

Ryan Hanigan (oblique) is still experiencing soreness and will not go on a rehab assignment until this weekend.

That is a tough break for the backup catcher. Hanigan is not a good hitter so he doesn't belong on fantasy squads.

Rays Wil Myers will take batting practice Saturday for the first time since breaking wrist. He's still targeted for mid-August return to the lineup.

Myers might need a couple of sessions before jumping right back into things, so expect one or two with a simulated game perhaps. From there, the Rays will determine just how long a rehab assignment he will need before returning.

Jake McGee pitched a perfect ninth striking out two on Monday as the Rays defeated the Brewers 2-1.

Fantasy owners had been hoping for McGee to get a crack at closing permanently for sometime, and now that he is he has made the most of it. He is now up to 12 saves on the season with a sensational 1.50 ERA and 0.83 WHIP and 63 punch outs to 10 walks over 52 appearances (48 IP) this year.

Jake Odorizzi earned the win Monday over the Brewers after holding them to one run on three hits, including a home run, with no walks and five strikeouts over seven innings.

Odorizzi who was facing the team that drafted him in the first round of 2008 draft, improved to 7-8 over 21 starts this season having won each of his last three starts and five of his last eight (5-1). The three-start win streak is the first of his young career and the 24-year old will look to make it four win in a row in his second start of the week on Sunday at home against the Angels.
