Cordero's quadriceps injury is considered serious, and the Padres don't expect him to return before the start of September, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. The exact details of the injury aren't clear, but there's reportedly an issue with a tendon. Cordero has only gotten into nine games this season, suffering an elbow injury in early April and a quadriceps injury during a rehab game in mid-June.
Cordero (leg) underwent an MRI on Monday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. The results of Cordero's MRI have yet to be revealed, but he did note that he's feeling better after leaving Wednesday's rehab game with Triple-A El Paso due to a left quad injury. He's yet to resume baseball activities since suffering the setback.
Cordero was moved to the 60-day injured list Monday. Cordero has been on the injured list since April 8 due to an elbow issue, and he recently suffered a left quad injury while rehabbing at Triple-A El Paso. A timetable for his return has yet to be established.
Cordero exited Wednesday's rehab game with Triple-A El Paso due to a left quadriceps injury, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Cordero homered in the third inning before suffering the injury attempting to beat out a grounder in the sixth inning. The severity of the issue is not yet known, so it's unclear how long this setback will affect Cordero's return date at this point. Consider him out indefinitely.
Cordero (elbow) went 2-for-5 with a double and a home run in his rehab appearance for Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday, Bill Center of Padres.com reports. Cordero has looked good in his stint with the Chihuahuas so far, as this was second long ball in four rehab games. That indicates he's feeling back to full health after landing on the injured list April 8 with the elbow soreness, so a return to the big club should be just around the corner for the 24-year-old, who was off to a solid start at the dish for the Padres prior to the injury.
