Ryan Cook NOT Called Up to Diamondbacks?

Mobile Bay Bears reliever Ryan Cook has been called up to the big leagues, according to his teammate Charles Brewer. Ryan Cook was drafted in 2008 and spent the 2010 season with three different Arizona minor league teams (Visalia, Mobile and Reno). He has spent all of this year in AA with the Bay Bears as a reliever, compiling a 1-4 record, 13 saves and a 2.25 ERA and 3.57 strikeouts-to-walks ratio (aka pretty damn good and a better ratio than most of the Diamondbacks' current pitchers). Our own IHSB ranked him as the Diamondbackstop reliever in the minor leagues with a mid-to-upper 90s fastball and great sinker/slider. Now he'll get a chance to throw in the big leagues.

There is no official word from the Diamondbacks on this call-up or on who was released (or injured) to make room for Cook.

Updated: Still no official word on this news and no stories from any of the Diamondbacks beat writers. It looks like Charlie Brewer's initial tweet has been deleted, as has @dbacksbooth's retweet of it. It may have been incorrect or premature news. Kirk Gibson has confirmed Cook will not be called up today.
