Aaron Cook Injury: Righty To DL, Lefty Andrew Miller Rejoins Big League Squad

The first fews days on the job as the Boston Red Sox new starting pitcher didn't go as planned for sinker-baller Aaron Cook. On Saturday, the righty lasted less than three innings and suffered a huge gash to his right knee in his team's fourth straight loss. On Sunday, that laceration has placed him on the disable list and his future with the club in doubt.

The transaction, however, has allowed left-handed pitcher Andrew Miller to make his move back to the big leagues. Miller, who had his 30-day rehab stint end Sunday, put together a dominate performance on Tuesday in Pawtucket, the Red Sox Triple-A affiliate.

Miller tossed just two innings, however, he struck out five while walking two. In 10 innings of work, Miller has struck out 22 batters and seems to be ready to contribute to the big league club.
