Ryan Cook has a forearm strain.
— Jane Lee (@JaneMLB) May 7, 2014
Any time there's an injury with a forearm, the warning alarms go off. It wouldn't be the first time a forearm strain resulted in Tommy John surgery. He'll be given a few days off, if not more. He'll get an MRI today, while the A's enjoy the day off. We'll know later today as to how bad the injury really is.
Cook missed all of Spring Training with shoulder tendinitis, returning to the team in early April. He's appeared in twelve games for Oakland this season, pitching 12.1 innings and allowing four runs on six hits & nine walks while striking out fifteen.
Stay tuned to Sports Injury Alert today for an update on his status.
