Aaron Cook SP COL 6 Months

According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, right-hander Aaron Cook is unlikely to pitch in 2014.

The 35-year-old had been staging a comeback attempt, but the interest from major league teams apparently was not there. Cook hasn't appeared in the bigs since 2012, when he had a 5.65 ERA in 94 innings with Boston.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that Aaron Cook is looking to make a comeback this season.

A tired arm forced Cook to shut things down for the season last year after just eight Triple-A starts. The soon-to-be 35-year-old says he's healthy now, though, and is looking for an opportunity. It will only require a minor league deal, so he shouldn't have trouble catching on somewhere.

Rockies released RHP Aaron Cook.

Cook decided that he no longer wanted to pitch for Triple-A Colorado Springs after posting an 8.15 ERA over eight starts. It's not clear if the 34-year-old is considering retirement or just wanted to take some time off.

Rockies signed RHP Aaron Cook to a minor league contract.

Cook was released by the Phillies on Tuesday after posting a 3.38 ERA and 5/4 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings this spring. The 34-year-old was originally drafted by the Rockies in 1997 and posted a 4.53 ERA over 10 seasons with the club. While it's possible that he'll resurface in the major league rotation soon, he'll serve as minor league depth for the time being.

Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post hears that the Rockies are "expected to discuss internally" whether to sign Aaron Cook.

Cook was released by the Phillies on Tuesday after posting a 3.38 ERA and 5/4 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings this spring. The Rockies' rotation appears set, so there might not be room for him on the Opening Day roster initially.

Phillies released RHP Aaron Cook.

The Phillies had until Tuesday to add Cook to the 25-man roster or pay a $100,000 retention bonus to send him to the minors. However, they have allowed him to test the free agent market. The 24-year-old had a 5.65 ERA and 20/21 K/BB ratio over 94 innings with the Red Sox last season.

Phillies signed RHP Aaron Cook to a minor league contract with a spring training invite.

FOX Sports' Jon Paul Morosi was first to report the signing. Cook is coming off a strange season with the Red Sox in which he compiled a 5.65 ERA and averaged just 1.91 K/9. The soon-to-be 34-year-old will provide insurance for the starting rotation and will make $1.625 million if he's on the major league roster.

The Denver Post's Troy Renck lists Aaron Cook as one of the pitchers the Rockies are interested in signing to a minor league deal.

Renck also mentions Derek Lowe, Chris Volstad and Jeff Karstens. Karstens will almost surely require a guaranteed deal, something the Rockies would prefer not to offer, and Lowe probably would, as well. Volstad and Cook might be available on minor league deals, though. Cook, of course, spent the first 10 seasons of his career with the Rockies. He posted a 5.65 ERA over 18 starts for the Red Sox in 2012.

Aaron Cook was obliterated in Friday's loss to the Orioles, allowing six runs on five hits in just one inning of work.

Cook also issued three walks without striking out any batters in the brutal outing. All of the damage came via the long ball, with Chris Davis blasting a two-run shot, and Ryan Flaherty adding on a grand slam. He now owns an unimpressive 4-11 record and 5.65 ERA on the season. His days as a major league starting pitcher appear to be numbered.
