Cooke had been a reliever for his first two years at Louisiana Lafayette, but he took a big step forward in 2021. He has plenty of athleticism, but he took a step forward with his control and consistency this year. He has the makings of a pro relief profile thanks to a plus low-80s curveball that he shows feel to locate and he has the power to bury hitters with it. It’s a 12-to-6 hammer, and opponents hit only .092/.145/.123 against it in 2021. He sits at 89-91 mph with his fastball, but he has shown he can get to 93-94 when he needs it and he carries that velocity deep into games. After going 7-3, 2.03 with a .157 opponent average this year, Cooke seems ready for the challenge of pro ball. He has earned the shot to go out as a starter, but may eventually end up as a reliever with a weapon in his curve.
