Aaron Cook, Red Sox Agree to Minor-League Deal

According to Ken Rosenthal, righty Aaron Cook is in agreement with the Boston Red Sox on a minor-league contract, pending a physical, and will compete for a starting job this spring.

The 32-year-old has spent the first ten seasons of his career in Colorado, where he's ultimately had moderate success. In just over 1300 total innings pitched, he's posted a 106 ERA+ and compiled 13.7 rWAR.

He's coming off a three-year $29.5MM contract extension that he finalized back in 2007, as the Rockies declined an $11MM option for 2012. Earlier we'd heard that the Pittsburgh Pirates were interested in Cook.
