MASH Report (7/15/16) – PAIN and HURT Reports

• With little news, here is a nice write-up on what Alex Cobb’s minor league rehab days are like.

Four hours before Monday’s first pitch Alex Cobb ordered a Slim #4 Turkey Breast sandwich at a Jimmy John’s, located a few blocks from the stadium.

He removed the top piece of the French bread and quickly devoured the first of his two pregame meals. The second was the peanut butter and jelly sandwich he always eats before leaving the locker room to begin his pregame warmup.

“I try to eat as light as possible before I pitch,” he said. “I’ve been on the mound (after eating too much) and feel like I have a brick in my stomach.”

Tyler Flowers is out at least six weeks and could miss the rest of the season.

A Braves source confirmed Flowers received this diagnosis via the results of a MRI exam that was performed in Atlanta on Monday. The 30-year-old catcher will miss at least six weeks, but it seems quite possible that he could be out through a portion of the final month of the regular season.
