BOSTON - For Aaron Cook and the Red Sox, D-Day – as in Decision Day – is at hand.
With Tuesday marking May 1, the day in which Cook’s minor-league opt-out clause officially takes effect, Boston must decide whether to promote the veteran pitcher and place him on the active roster or risk losing him to free agency. Reached Monday night, Joe Bick, the agent for Cook, spelled out a step-by-step process that included all involved parties.
“The way it reads is that if he isn’t called up by May 1, then we make the decision we have to make, and they have 48 hours to respond,” Bick stated. “Once we make a decision, it’s completely in their hands. There’s really nothing for us to do beyond deal with what their response is.”
