Aaron Cook is looking to make a comeback after he was forced to shut down after experiencing a tired arm in late July. Cook is fine now and looking for another chance.
While it's quite possible that a team so desperate for pitching could sign him, it's hard to say exactly who would be in the market for a guy who doesn't strike anyone out, has an injury history the size of a bread line in the Gulag, and hasn't posted an ERA below 5.00 since 2009. Yes, that's right, fantasy owners. Move along. Nothing left to see here. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
