Street (knee) is making his 2017 Cactus League debut Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Coming off a 6.45 ERA during (surprise) an injury-shortened 2016, Street is battling for the closer role with Cam Bedrosian (groin) and Andrew Bailey, among others. His body of work and name recognition may land him the job initially, but it's wise for fantasy players to remain skeptical, especially considering his health issues and the talent Bedrosian boasts when healthy.
He loaded the bases in his final inning before Daniel Hudson relieved him and recorded the third out. Marinez offers a sinking fastball which the organization believes can become an effective weapon. Milwaukee released him recently after he allowed 23 hits and 11 walks in 16.2 innings. He'll likely continue to work in low-leverage spots as the team attempts to turn his season around.
Cordell is hitting .311/.373/.547 with six homers, five steals, 27 RBI and 31 runs through 37 games with Triple-A Colorado Springs.
All indicators look positive for the 25-year-old outfielder as he continues pushing for a job in the majors. Cordell's biggest problem on that front right now is that he's blocked by solid Brewers both in the outfield and at third base, so it'll probably take an injury for him to be called up in the near future. Once he does find his way into a regular role in the big leagues, Cordell could rapidly become a solid cross-category contributor.
Hunter will make a rehab appearance with High-A Charlotte on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
This will be his first rehab appearance, and he will likely make a handful of appearances before rejoining the big-league club. He most recently looked sharp in a batting practice session Saturday.
Cole gave up five earned runs on 10 hits and two walks in 4.2 innings Monday against the Braves. He also hit one batter while striking out two.
The outing was his worst of 2017 and seemed reminiscent of his struggles from a year ago. A 31-pitch first inning set the tone for the evening and long time nemesis Brandon Phillips (.440 career batting average vs. Cole) belted a two-run homer to further compound matters. Cole needed 100 pitches (67 for strikes) in the highly forgettable showing. Fortunately, his fastball velocity (95.8 mph) was on par with his last four starts, making Monday look more like an aberration than a trend. He'll next get the Mets in Pittsburgh over the weekend.
