Athletics' Ryan Cook: 'I need to get the ball to drop more'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Athletics pitcher Ryan Cook surrendered three runs in two innings Monday and owns a 16.88 ERA this spring, and he said Tuesday that he's having problems preventing his pitches from being too high up in the strike zone, the Contra Costa Times reports.
"I need to get the ball to drop more," Cook said. "I need to put myself in a position where I have a higher probability of success."
Cook said he's healthy and feeling stronger than he has in recent seasons, so he's able to not go crazy due to spring struggles.
"I’m really feeling good, and it’s not translating into results right now," Cook said. "That’s frustrating, waiting for that translating."
Athletics pitcher Ryan Cook still trying to work things out
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Athletics pitcher Ryan Cook is not quite there yet. Cook struggled again Monday, giving up three runs on five hits in two innings of work. His ERA this spring is up to 16.88 in five outings.
"It's a struggle for him right now, but he's going to work through it," said manager Bob Melvin. "Better today, at least with the command of his pitches. Didn't get the results. Sometimes you get tested. Right now he's getting tested. It's no fun. He's not happy."
Melvin thinks they can get things worked out with Cook before the season begins.
"We've got some time left to get him right," Melvin said. "I thought he did throw the ball over the plate a little bit better today. He wasn't missing up and away to a lefty as much. He was throwing his slider for strikes."

Several candidates to fill in for Sean Doolittle
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(2/8/15) With Athletics closer Sean Doolittle slated to miss the start of the season with a slight tear in his rotator cuff, the team will look at several candidates to fill in, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
Newly-acquired Tyler Clippard and setup man Ryan Cook are the top contenders, with Eric O'Flaherty also a possibility, the report said.
There is no timetable for Doolittle's return. Doctors believe Doolittle won't need surgery, and have prescribed rest and a strengthening program, the paper said.
