A's put Cook on DL, send Straily to Triple-A
ESPN 63+ SHARES
The Oakland Athletics placed reliever Ryan Cook on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm Friday, sent struggling starter Dan Straily to Triple-A Sacramento and called up relievers Fernando Rodriguez and Joe Savery.
The A's made the moves before hosting the Washington Nationals on Friday night.
Cook was injured during Wednesday's doubleheader against Seattle.
Melvin said the team wants Straily to work on his fastball command, which has been inconsistent and led to him falling behind hitters.
He is coming off elbow ligament replacement surgery and last pitched in the majors with Houston on Oct. 3, 2012.
