"If boys and girls start wearing protective inserts, it will become second nature for them when they’re older," Cobb said. "I want to be a part of the evolution toward introducing this successfully at the big league level and I think the best way to do it is by starting at youth ages," he said. "My optimism is through the roof. The biggest thing is to further the process for technology to catch up, where we can wear it without altering mechanics or comfort—this is the best step."

Due to the success of Cobb's first 10 starts of the 2017 season (3.82 ERA) and his impending free-agency, the Rays were reported to be shopping the starter if they were to fall out of the playoff race or if they felt they had the depth to lose Cobb.
