Biography

Aaron Lane Cook (born February 8, 1979 in Fort Campbell, Kentucky) is a right-handed Major League Baseball pitcher currently playing for the Colorado Rockies. He has played with the Rockies for his entire Major League career, spanning from 2002 onwards.

Cook saw his 2004 season come to an abrupt end when it was discovered that he suffers pulmonary embolism], or blood clots. During an August 7 start against the Cincinnati Reds, Cook complained of dizziness and shortness of breath. After he was taken to a local hospital, doctors discovered blood clots had formed in his right shoulder. On September 10, Cook underwent extensive surgery at a St. Louis hospital during which the first rib on his right side was removed to relieve compression on a major blood vein.

He stayed on the disabled list until July 30, when he gave up seven runs and eleven hits in 4 1/3 innings of a 9-2 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies at Coors Field. His first 2005 victory came in an 11-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on August 15 when he pitched six innings and gave up two runs and nine hits. In his final 12 starts of 2005, Cook went 7-1 with a 3.07 ERA. For this outstanding recovery from his very serious condition, he was awarded the 2005 Tony Conigliaro Award.

Cook is married to his wife (Alexis), and they have two children, stepdaughter Alexis and son Elijah (12/1/03).
