ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. The Tampa Bay Rays placed right-hander Alex Cobb on the bereavement list Tuesday because of the death of his grandmother. The club also promoted right-hander Jake Odorizzi from Triple-A Durham to give the Rays bullpen a fresh arm. Rays manager Joe Maddon said Cobb approached him about his grandmothers death following the Boston Red Soxs 10-8 victory in 14 innings at Tropicana Field, which began Monday night and ended early Tuesday after a five-hour, 24-minute game. Cobb made the start but only lasted four innings after giving up six runs, seven hits and three walks. He didnt find out, I think, until after the game, Maddon said. He came in and talked to me briefly afterwards. After everything had settled down, he came in the office. I knew he was upset. I didnt know what was wrong. Then I found out something happened. Odorizzi made two starts with the Rays last month May 20 against the Toronto Blue Jays and May 27 against the Miami Marlins before being optioned to Durham on May 29. I pitched a couple times out of the bullpen in Low-A as a tandem-starting thing, Odorizzi said. Ill make the adjustment. You cant really think about it as much as getting warm and getting going. Thats about all I can do, just try to get in there and get a feel for things as quickly as I can. Odorizzi is 0-0 with a 9.00 ERA in nine innings with the Rays this season.
