Reliever Ryan Cook returns to Athletics with strong inning
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/26/15) Reliever Ryan Cook, who was recalled by the Athletics on Sunday, wasted no time in providing a boost to the Oakland bullpen, pitching one perfect inning during the team's loss to the Astros.
Cook struggled mightily in spring training, with an 16.88 Cactus League ERA. That earned him a ticket to Triple-A Nashville, where he threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings before being recalled.
He retired the side in quick order in the seventh inning, with a groundout, flyout and strikeout.
"Just getting back to being myself and throwing the baseball the way I know I can," Cook said. "I feel confident in all my pitches right now, so hopefully I can get on a roll and help the team in whatever way they see fit."
Athletics call up Ryan Cook, send down Kendall Graveman
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) The Athletics made two roster moves on Sunday.
The A's recalled RHP Ryan Cook from Triple-A Nashville. Cook was 2-0 with a save in five scoreless appearances in Nashville.
Cook replaces Kendall Graveman, who was optioned to Nashville. Graveman was 1-2 with an 8.27 ERA in four starts for the A's.
"I think he's trying a little too hard and putting some pressure on himself," manager Bob Melvin said to CSN Bay Area. "For a guy that had such a quick road to the big leagues, now he’s going through something he's never really had to go through before. We expect him back, this is just a respite for him."

|(3/24/15) The Athletics optioned pitcher Ryan Cook to Triple-A Nashville Tuesday, the team announced. An All-Star in 2012, Cook posted a 16.88 ERA in 5 1/3 innings this spring.
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."
