BOSTON (CBS) -Aaron Cook’s first start as a member of the Red Sox did not go very well, and now the right-hander has landed on the disabled list because of it.
Cook was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday after suffering a left knee laceration in their 8-2 loss to the Orioles on Saturday.
Left-handed pitcher Andrew Miller was activated from the 15-day DL and took Cook’s spot on the Boston roster.
The 26-year-old Miller began the season on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain. He has made 12 rehab appearances between Single-A Greenville (2 games) and Triple-A Pawtucket (10 games), putting up a combined 4.85 ERA over 13 innings while striking out 26 batters.
Miller appeared in 17 games with the Red Sox in 2011, including 12 starts, and went 6-3 with a 5.54 ERA and 50 strikeouts.
