News: Cook agreed to a one-year, $1.4 million contract with the Athletics on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Cook turned in a strong 2014 campaign with the A's in 2014, finishing with a 3.42 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with 50 strikeouts over 50 innings. However, he also walked 22, an issue he will have to correct. He sports a mid-90s fastball, but figures to serve more in middle relief for the club in 2015.
