Wakefield Out, Cook in

Tim Wakefield has been left from the World Series Roster for the Boston Red Sox. Said Wakefield, “Based on the information I’m getting from the doctors, I’m seriously at risk of injuring myself for the rest of my life.” Wakefield’s injury appears to be an inflammation in the back of the right shoulder.  Jon Lester, who threw a simulated game Tuesday, will likely join the rotation and start Game 4 against the Rockies.  Right-hander Kyle Snyder was added to the roster in Wakefield’s place. He had a record of 2-3 with 3.81 ERA in 46 games this season.

On the other hand, the Rockies activated Aaron Cook for the World Series roster. He is slated to start Game 4. Cook has been sidelined since August 10 with a strained side muscle and finished the season with an 8-7  record with a 4.12 ERA. To accomodate Cook’s addition to the roster, Franklin Morales was moved to the bullpen while Taylor Buchholz was left off the roster.
