Manager John Gibbons has yet to announce the starters for the series against the Rays.
Cobb is set to take a big league mound for the first time since 2014 after Tommy John surgery. The 28-year-old struggled in eight rehab starts, going 0-3 with a 6.65 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP. Rays manager Kevin Cash remains encouraged, however.
In his last start, Archer reached 200 strikeouts for the second straight season. The last pitcher to reach Archer’s combination of strikeouts and losses (17) was Frank Viola with the Twins and Mets in 1989.
