Now, the Orioles have agreed to terms on a four-year deal with Cobb in the range of $60 million, according to an industry source. The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal had earlier reported it was expected to be "at least" a three-year deal worth around $50 million.

Last season Cobb, in his first full year back from Tommy John surgery, threw a career high 179 1/3 innings with a 3.66 ERA (113 ERA+) for the Tampa Bay Rays.

The unfortunate issue for Cobb is staying healthy.

The Rays announced last Friday that Cobb would need Tommy John surgery after he suffered a setback on May 3 while trying to rehab from a bout with right forearm tendinitis that caused him to miss the beginning of the season.

The Orioles were disgusting last season with MLB's worst team ERA at 5.70 and will now have a projected starting rotation of Alex Cobb, Dylan Bundy, Kevin Gausman, and Andrew Cashner. Those two plus Cobb turn Baltimore's projected rotation from this.

With the late signing, it's not yet clear if Cobb will play Opening Day. The fact Manny Machado is a free agent in 2019 gives Baltimore some impetus to look for some short-term upgrades.

Cobb joins Dylan Bundy, Kevin Gausman and Andrew Cashner in Baltimore's starting rotation. Cobb, on the other hand, is a real difference-maker for Baltimore's pitching staff.
