OAKLAND -- Reliever Ryan Cook is back in the A's bullpen. The right-hander was recalled Sunday morning to take the roster spot of the demoted Kendall Graveman and made his season debut for the club just hours later, pitching a perfect seventh inning in a 7-6 loss to the Astros.
"It's great to get Ryan back," said catcher Stephen Vogt. "We all missed him, personally and pitching-wise, and to see him come out, that's some of the best stuff I've seen from him in the last year. I think he looks great. We're excited to have him back."
