Cook and Woodall Return from the DL

Pitchers Ryan Cook (blister) and Bryan Woodall (strained bicep) return to the South Bend Silver Hawks tonight after nearly a two-week absence for each of them.

South Bend, IN – In conjunction with the Arizona Diamondbacks, the South Bend Silver Hawks have announced that right-handed starter Ryan Cook and right-handed reliever Bryan Woodall have been activated from the disabled list. Right-handed relievers Houston Summers and Victor Capellan have been returned to extended spring training camp in Arizona.

Cook is 5-1 with a 2.85 ERA in seven games this season. He was tied for the Midwest League lead in victories when he went on the disabled list on May 19th with a blister on his pitching hand. Cook had turned in a quality start (six innings or more, three runs or less) in each of his first six starts this season before being removed after just three innings with the blister problem in his final outing. He was a 27th round draft pick in 2008 from the University of Southern California.

Woodall is 1-3 with a 6.52 ERA in 11 relief appearances for South Bend in 2009. He last pitched May 21st against Burlington, allowing two runs on four hits in 1.0 inning, after which he was placed on the disabled list. Woodall was selected in the 21st round of the 2008 draft out of Auburn University.

Summers is a knuckleball pitcher that was added to the staff when Cook went on the DL. He appeared in only two games, allowing seven earned runs in 2.2 innings in his first outing at Burlington, before bouncing back with a scoreless inning against Clinton over the past weekend.

Capellan joined South Bend on May 23rd in Peoria after Woodall was placed on the DL. The side-arm right hander pitched in two games for South Bend, allowing one run in 4.0 relief innings. Recommended Stories
