Athletics Injury Update: Ryan Cook leaves game with forearm injury

By on 5/08/2014 07:15:00 AM

The Oakland Athletics hosted the Seattle Mariners for a double-header yesterday, dropping the first one and winning the second one.  Winning the second game avoided a four-game sweep.  In the first game, the teams needed to go to extra innings, where Ryan Cook gave up the winning runs in the 10th.  Cook would leave the game due to an apparent injury.  Jane Lee of has the prognosis:

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.
