Athletics call up Ryan Cook, send down Kendall Graveman


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:08 pm ET) 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."


Athletics option Ryan Cook to Triple-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) 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
(3/24/2015) 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
(3/23/2015) 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."


Athletics' Ryan Cook working on correcting delivery issues


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Several candidates to fill in for Sean Doolittle


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

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.


Report: A's, Ryan Cook settle at $1.4 million


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Ryan Cook flops in save opportunity


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/8/2014) Athletics reliever Ryan Cook got a chance to close out Sunday's game against the Astros and instead gave away the lead and the game, issuing two earned runs on three walks in two-thirds of an inning. He took the loss, though he technically didn't blow the save since Fernando Abad was the one who allowed his runners to score.

"There's no excuses," Cook told the San Francisco Chronicle. "I didn't make pitches. That's all there is to it."

Cook was filling in for in for an injured Eric O'Flaherty, who is himself filling in for an injured Sean Doolittle. O'Flaherty's tight back may not allow him to pitch Monday at the White Sox either.


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.

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."
