ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Alex Cobb could be headed for season-ending elbow ligament replacement surgery.

An MRI this week found that Cobb has a ligament tear. He received a platelet-rich-plasma injection in an attempt to avoid surgery.

"I'm still going back and forth on what I want to do," Cobb said before Thursday night's game against Texas. "You try some options that are available. You always try to avoid surgery."

Cobb will rest for a week and said he could resume light throwing in two weeks to see how the injection worked.
