by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook agreed to a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Yomiuri Giants, the Japan Times reports.

Cook appeared in 19 games for the Mariners in 2018, logging a 5.29 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 23 strikeouts in 17 innings of relief. At age 31, he may finish his career in Japan.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Cook appeared in 19 games for the Mariners in 2018, logging a 5.29 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 23 strikeouts in 17 innings of relief. In order to protect some of their younger minor-league prospects, the Mariners elected to send him off the 40-man roster as the offseason gets underway.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Joins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Cook had a stint with the Mariners earlier this season and allowed seven runs and three home runs across 9.1 innings. The 31-year-old will hope to carry over his success with Triple-A Tacoma this time around, as he had a 2.16 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 37:17 K:BB over 33.1 innings.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Sent down to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

The veteran righty has a 6.75 ERA in 9.1 innings for the Mariners this season. He was sent down to make way for Nick Vincent's return from a groin injury. Cook could return to the big leagues later in the season but is unlikely to be much of a fantasy asset if and when he does.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Notches first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook (1-0) fired a scoreless eighth inning in a win over the Red Sox on Friday, allowing a hit and two walks while recording a strikeout.

The pinch-hitting Denard Span ultimately made a winner out of Cook with a two-run double in the bottom of the eighth, a rare stroke of luck for the veteran reliever. Cook has had a rough time on and off the field since late May, as he'd allowed five earned runs over his four prior appearances and also taken a tumble down the dugout steps at Minute Maid Park on June 5. Cook's previously unblemished ERA has risen to 5.19 over his last five outings, but he's been of some value in formats that count holds by amassing five in 10 appearances overall.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Takes tumble down dugout steps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook slipped on the dugout steps at Minute Maid Park prior to Tuesday's game and initially appeared to be in pain, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

The veteran reliever apparently took his tumble not far from where manager Scott Servais was conducting a pregame interview, prompting some alarm from the skipper and team trainers. However, Divish noted that after being checked out by the training staff, Cook reported that he expected to be fine. The 30-year-old has appeared in six games out of the bullpen for the Mariners, posting a 3.60 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and six strikeouts over five innings.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Grabs hold in '18 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook notched his first hold of the season in a loss to the Tigers on Thursday, firing a scoreless 1.1 innings with a strikeout.

Just recalled from Triple-A Tacoma earlier in the day, Cook was razor sharp while getting four outs on an efficient 15 pitches. The veteran's appearance was his first at the big-league level since 2015, and his strong debut effort was an extension of the success he'd enjoyed with the Rainiers thus far in 2018 (2.03 ERA, 0.99 WHIP across 13.1 innings).

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Contract selected by Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook was called up from Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday.

In a corresponding move, Christian Bergman was optioned down to Tacoma following his start against Texas on Wednesday. Cook hasn't appeared in a major-league game since the 2015 season and spent the last couple years dealing various injuries including a back issue and then Tommy John surgery. During 13 outing with Tacoma in 2018, he's posted a 2.03 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with a 17:3 K:BB across 13.1 innings.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Sent to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners reassigned Cook to their minor-league camp Sunday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

After missing the entire 2017 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, Cook unsurprisingly looked rusty in spring training, giving up 10 runs on 14 hits and seven walks over seven frames. He'll have to iron out the kinks and regain velocity in the high minors before perhaps warranting a look from the big club later this season.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Stays with Mariners on minor league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook agreed to a minor league contract with the Mariners on Friday, reports.

The right-hander will spend the entire year rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, which was performed Oct. 20. An All-Star in 2012, Cook has made just nine appearances at the major league level over the past two years. He suffered a lat strain in spring training and made just one appearance in rookie ball in July before landing right back on the shelf.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook (lat) was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.

A lat injury injury suffered in spring training put Cook on the 60-day DL, and he made just one rehab appearance in July before shutting it back down. The Mariners have chosen not to return Cook to the 40-man roster, so it seems likely he'll pitch for Tacoma to begin 2017, health permitting.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Throws perfect inning in first rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook (back) threw a perfect inning in the Arizona Rookie League on Sunday in his first rehab game, Greg Johns of reports.

Cook saw his first live action since being placed on the 60-day DL in early March and managed to retire the side without surrendering a baserunner. The 29-year-old will be eligible to return shortly after the All-Star break and will look to get back to his 2014 form. which saw him post a solid 3.42 ERA in 50 innings of work for the A's.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Scheduled to start rehab Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook (strained right lat) will begin his rehab assignment for Peoria in the Arizona League on Sunday, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Cook has not pitched at all in 2016. If he can successfully complete his rehab without any setbacks, he could be a nice addition to a Mariners bullpen that has struggled over the past couple of weeks leading up to the All-Star break. Cook, who had a great run as a reliever for Oakland from 2012-2014, will look to regain his velocity and command after a very disappointing 2015 with the Athletics and Red Sox organizations.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Placed on 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook (back) was placed on the 60-day DL by the Mariners on Saturday.

Cook was expected to open the season on the DL, but the 60-day designation assures that he won't see the field until June at the earliest. The move was made to make room for the newly acquired Rob Brantly. Cook signed a one-year major league deal with the Mariners in early January.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Expected to start season on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook (back) will likely open the season on the disabled list, the Tacoma News-Tribune's Bob Dutton reports.

It is not clear how long Cook's back injury will keep him sidelined, but this will open up opportunities for Tony Zych and Joel Peralta at the outset of the season. When Cook is healthy he should occupy a middle relief role.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Out with back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook has a strained back that is expected to keep him out more than two weeks, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Cook faces tough odds to land a bullpen spot. Missing significant time probably seals his fate.

Mariners' Ryan Cook: Signs minor league deal with Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook agreed to a minor league deal with the Mariners on Thursday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

The former All Star was non-tendered by the Cubs this offseason after a difficult 2015 campaign that saw him post a 18.69 ERA and 3.115 WHIP over nine relief appearances with the Athletics and Red Sox. According to Heyman, Cook can earn $1.1 million if he makes the major league roster.

Ryan Cook: Non-tendered by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs declined to tender Cook a contract for 2016, Carrie Muskat of reports.

Cook was knocked around to the tune of an 18.69 ERA in nine appearances between Oakland and Boston last season, a far cry from the 2.09 mark he posted in 71 games with the A's in 2012. He's now a free agent with the Cubs non-tendering him, but Cook may have to settle for a minor league deal with a free agent invite after the poor campaign.

November 6, 2015 03:07 PM
Cubs' Ryan Cook: Claimed by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook was claimed off waivers by the Cubs on Friday, Carrie Muskat of reports.

Cook spent the majority of the 2015 season in the minors, but struggled in limited doses in the majors with Oakland and Boston. He'll act as bullpen depth in Chicago and could work his way onto the Opening Day roster with a strong showing in the spring.

Red Sox bring up RP Heath Hembree, send pair to Triple-A
by Marty Gitlin |

The Red Sox have promoted right-hander Heath Hembree from Triple-A Pawtucket, per the Boston Globe. To make room for Hembree and Monday starting pitcher Matt Barnes they have optioned third baseman Garin Cecchini and reliever Ryan Cook.

Hembree pitched briefly for Boston earlier in the year. He rebounded after allowing six runs in 1 1/3 innings in his first appearance to throw five shutout innings.

Cook has been a mess with the Athletics and Red Sox in 2015. He has given up 17 hits in 6 1/3 innings and compiled a disturbing 19.89 ERA.

Cecchini was just brought up Saturday and was hitless in four at-bats over the weekend.
