Right-hander Alex Cobb is scheduled to make his Double-A debut Wednesday in relief of scheduled starter Jake McGee.
McGee has been cleared to make his first appearance since April 21 and says his knee feels fine. Cobb missed the season's first month due to a spring oblique injury.
Also, Rays general manager Andrew Friedman is skipping at least part of his team's trip west and will be at Riverwalk this week. Tampa Bay starts a nine-game trip tonight that includes three games at Seattle, Oakland and the Los Angeles Angels.
