Aaron Cook receives nasty cut on leg after being spiked (Photos)

We now have a new injury that can rival Amar’e Stoudemire’s utterly gruesome battle wound.

In his Red Sox debut on Saturday, pitcher Aaron Cook received the ugly gash on his leg that you’re seeing above. He suffered the injury when Orioles DH Chris Davis spiked him sliding into home during the second inning. The cut needed 11 stitches to close up, and on Sunday Cook was sent to the 15-day DL.

Aaron Cook Drilled With Line Drive

As far as taking a line drive off the leg goes, I must say Aaron Cook did it like a champ on Wednesday night.  When Cincinnati’s Joey Votto cranked a liner back at Cook, it broke his fibula and you can hear it loud and clear when you watch the clip.  Considering the gnarly sound it made, Cook has to be one tough s.o.b.  That, or he had yet to even realize his fibula had been shattered.  Check out the Aaron Cook injury video, courtesy of Deadspin:
