OAKLAND -- On Saturday night, Rays right-hander Alex Cobb will be making his fourth start since returning from the disabled list.

In his three previous outings, he is 2-0 with a 2.16 ERA, and he said he's feeling better every time out.

"I definitely think it has been a gradual return in performance as far as me feeling comfortable in locating the fastball and mixing in pitches," Cobb said on Friday. "That got a lot better this past week. My change is not as sharp, but I hope to get that down by tomorrow."

Cobb (8-2, 2.87 ERA), who missed 50 games with a concussion, said he's just dealing with the everyday issues that occur over the season.

"You're always battling issues throughout the season," Cobb said. "I had an endurance problem when I first came back. I'm beyond that now."
