Happy to see JA Happ out there again!!! Nice to see him recover from that scary incident...Corn on the Cobb is next!!— David Price (@DAVIDprice14) August 7, 2013
Two scary moments connect Cobb and Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ. Both were struck by line drives on the mound at Tropicana Field earlier this season, and both faced extended rehabs in their work back.
Happ pitched four innings last Wednesday in a no-decision against the Mariners at Safeco Field, his first action since he was struck near the left ear by a liner from the Rays' Desmond Jennings on May 7.
Cobb is expected to return Thursday against the Mariners at Tropicana Field, which would be his first action since a liner from the Royals' Eric Hosmer struck him on the right ear June 15.
Two scary moments, two recoveries. Here's hoping we never see anything similar again.
