Slumping Ryan Cook loses it in extras


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Athletics reliever Ryan Cook struggled yet again Thursday, and this time the offense would not bail him out in a 4-43 loss to the Angels.

One night after blowing a save by allowing two runs, Cook had trouble setting the Angels down in the bottom of the 10th. He allowed a leadoff walk followed by a single, and then lost the game on Howie Kendrick's game-winning sacrifice fly.

Cook allowed one run in two-thirds of an inning, raising his season ERA to 3.45 in 44 1/3 innings. He has allowed 17 runs overall on the season, seven of which have come in his last six outings. 


Eric O'Flaherty first choice to close for A's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) With Sean Doolittle set to go on the disabled list, Eric O'Flaherty will be the first choice to close games for the Athletics, according to the San Francisco Chronicle on Sunday. The move was made to keep Luke Gregerson and Ryan Cook in their set-up roles, per the paper.

O'Flaherty owns a 1.35 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP over 13 1/3 innings of relief this season.

Ryan Cook picks up first relief win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) Athletics pitcher Ryan Cook (1-1) earned his first win of the season Monday night at home against the Rays in extras.

Cook struck out two and needed only nine pitches to retire the side in order in the 10th. Derek Norris drove in the game-winning run in the bottom of the frame to give the right-hander his first win since Aug. 30 of last year, which also came against the Rays.

Cook owns a 2.48 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP over 36 1/3 innings of relief.

Ryan Cook records first save Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Athletics pitcher Ryan Cook earned his first save of the year Sunday, giving up just one hit in 1 1/3 scoreless innings and striking out two to finish off his team's 4-3 win over the Marlins.

Rather than use closer Sean Doolittle for three straight games after he blew a save opportunity Saturday, manager Bob Melvin stuck with Cook, who gave up a leadoff single in the ninth after recording the final out of the eighth but didn't allow any further damage. Cook owns a 3.91 ERA and 25:15 K:BB ratio in 23 innings, and any further save opportunities will likely be few and far between.

Ryan Cook avoids serious forearm injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

"I've talked with friends and guys I've known who have had Tommy John done," Cook said. "I knew where the pain would be, and I didn’t have it there. So when I left here Wednesday, I was confident, 100 percent confident that this injury wasn’t a big deal."

Cook owns a 1.35 ERA, with an 8:6 K:BB ratio over 6 2/3 innings pitched.
