Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was on the sideline, working with trainers Tuesday while the New York Giants held their first minicamp practice of the year.
Thus, Cobb will start Wednesday in the delayed start of this series between the only two AL East teams with losing records.
The rainout will be made up as part of single-admission doubleheader on May 12.
It was the 27th major league game to be postponed this season, the most related to weather through April since the commissioner’s office started keeping records in 1986. Detroit’s game at Pittsburgh was washed out later Tuesday, raising the total to 28.
Cobb, 30, spent his entire career with the Rays before signing with Baltimore as a free agent on March 21. Over six years with Tampa Bay, the right-hander was 48-35 and one of the leaders of the staff.
Al Horford’s 3-point attempt with 1:18 remaining seemed to come after the 24-second clock had expired in a five-point game. Instead, Celtics rookie Semi Ojeleye tapped out a rebound as Bucks players motioned for a whistle and Terry Rozier hustled to secure the ball.
Thon Maker was whistled for a foul for making contact with Rozier’s head while chasing the rebound. The Celtics didn’t score on their ensuing possession but were able to take the clock down to 48 seconds before the Bucks regained possession.
The Celtics emerged with a 92-87 triumph to take a 3-2 lead in the series.
Asked after the game about the lack of a 24-second violation, Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe vented.
“I think it was bulls—, point blank,” Bledsoe said before a Bucks media relations staffer ended his postgame session with reporters.
Bucks coach Joe Prunty was asked if he got an explanation about the non-call.
“For entertainment value, that was probably one of the better Game 7s you’ll see,” said Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, who stopped just 20 of 24 shots. “It was only a one-goal game going into the third and we shut it down and scored some good goals.”
Danton Heinen scored his first NHL postseason goal, Patrice Bergeron had a goal and two assists, and David Krejci had three assists for the Bruins. In his first NHL postseason action, DeBrusk had seven points in seven games.
