Report: Cobb going back to Tampa Bay

Alex Cobb is scheduled to start the second game of a doubleheader tonight at Toledo, according to the Durham Bulls. But the St. Petersburg Times reports that Cobb has been scratched and is apparently going to start Tuesday for the Rays.

UPDATE: Misleading release by the Bulls on Saturday. Cobb was scratched. The phrasing in their rainout release made it seem that Gonzalez was supposed to start the opener.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Or it wasn't misleading. From the team's Twitter page: "gm 1 DUR lineup Jennings 8 Olmedo 6 Guyer 9 Johnson 3 Canzler 5 Lobaton DH Anderson 7 Chirinos 2 Luna 4 RHP Gonzalez (Cobb gm 2)."

YET ANOTHER: The recently acquired Jay Buente is on the hill in Game 2.
