2012 MLB Hot Stove: Boston Red Sox Sign Former Colorado Rockies Pitcher Aaron Cook

According to a report from Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, pitcher Aaron Cook has agreed to a minor league deal with the Boston Red Sox:

The deal, which will become official when Cook passes a physical, includes an invitation to spring training, the sources said.

The 32-year-old struggled as a starter for Colorado in 2011, going just 3-10 with a 6.03 ERA. He has spent the last 10 seasons -- spanning his entire major league career -- with the Rockies, where he won 72 games. He is the club's all-time wins leader.

Colorado declined its side of a mutual $11 million option with Cook for 2012, which made the pitcher a free agent. The veteran has a career 4.53 ERA.
