Cook has successful rehab outing at Tulsa
, in his first rehab start for Double-A Tulsa, allowed three hits, one of them a homer, and one run in five innings against Frisco. He walked one, struck out four and took the loss as the Drillers fell 2-1.
Cook, who has been on the 15-day disabled list for nearly three weeks with a sprained right big toe, threw 60 pitches, 41 for strikes. He got eight outs on ground balls and three on balls hit in the air. This was his first appearance in a game since his last start with the Colorado Rockies on Aug. 3.
Cook is scheduled to make a second start for Tulsa on Saturday at home against Northwest Arkansas. It’s possible Cook then could return to the Rockies rotation on Sept. 2 when the Rockies are scheduled to play a make-up game with the Philadelphia Phillies at Coors Field.
