Report: Giants making push for Cobb
The sides are now engaged in serious contract talks, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network.
Though he pitched just 93 1/3 innings in 2021 due to injuries, Cobb was a quietly solid pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels when healthy. His rate of 0.48 home runs allowed per nine innings was the third-lowest among starters with at least 90 innings last year, while his 2.92 FIP tied Gerrit Cole for eighth under the same minimum.
The 34-year-old would join a Giants rotation that could have a bit of a different look next year. Breakout star Logan Webb is back atop the rotation, but San Francisco is faced with losing All-Star Kevin Gausman to free agency. The team also declined to exercise Johnny Cueto's option.
