The Rockies have signed 34-year old righty starting pitcher Aaron Cook to a minor league deal.  He pitched in 18 games (all starts) for the Red Sox last year and he was 4-11 with a 5.65 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP.  Last season was the first year of Cook’s major league career that he didn’t pitch for the Rockies.  Cook has pitched in 238 games (206 starts) in his first 10 years with the Rockies and he is 72-68 with a 4.53 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP.  Cook is the Rockies’ all-time leader in games started (206), wins (72) and innings pitched (1,312 1/3).  He is also # in ERA (4.53), #7 in WHIP (1.47), #5 in strikeouts (558), #2 in complete games (11) and tied for #3 in shutouts (2) in Rockies’ history.  With the state of the Rockies’ rotation right now, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Cook pitch a lot for them in 2013.
