• Right-hander Alex Cobb had a setback on Tuesday night in his first rehab start for Class A Charlotte, as he had to leave after two pitches because of a blister on his right index finger.
Cobb, who was struck by a line drive on June 15, had been progressing nicely during his rehab stint to the point where manager Joe Maddon noted last week that he might be able to return to the team after pitching on Tuesday and then making one more start.
It has not yet been determined how this setback will affect Cobb's return.
