• Stationed on the disabled list with a forearm strain, righty Ryan Cook "feels really good," according to Melvin.

The reliever hasn't begun throwing yet, but "as far as his exercises go, it's been real encouraging," said Melvin. "When you hear forearm, you can't help but think Tommy John, but we certainly don't expect that to be the case, and I know he's kind of champing at the bit to get going."
