  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Blasts first homer of 2022

    Cordero went 1-for-5 with a grand slam in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Mariners.

    The Red Sox gave up a one-run lead in the top of the ninth inning Sunday, but Cordero hit a walkoff grand slam in the bottom of the 10th, marking his first home run of the season. The 27-year-old has worked in the strong side of a platoon this year and is hitting .231 with a homer, 11 runs and seven RBI.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Shifts to OF

    Cordero moved from first base to left field Saturday after Alex Verdugo was removed from the game with flu-like symptoms. He went 1-for-4 with a run scored in a 6-5 win over the Mariners.

    Cordero scored Boston's winning run in the eighth inning after hitting a hard line-drive triple off the Green Monster. He came home on Christian Vazquez's single. The Red Sox are uncertain about Verdugo's status, so Cordero could be filling in at corner outfield while Bobby Dalbec handles first base Sunday against right-handed starter Logan Gilbert.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Remains on bench

    Cordero will sit for the second straight game Friday against the Mariners, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

    Cordero had been stealing playing time at first base while also filling in occasionally in the corner outfield spots, but he may be losing playing time after hitting .214/.306/.310 through 15 games. He was never likely to start Friday, however, with the Mariners sending lefty Robbie Ray to the mound.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: On bench Thursday

    Cordero isn't starting Thursday against the Mariners, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

    Although right-hander George Kirby is on the mound for Seattle on Thursday, Cordero will get a breather after he went 2-for-12 with two doubles, two runs and four strikeouts over the last three games. Bobby Dalbec will start at first base and bat seventh.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Sitting against lefty

    Cordero is not in Sunday's lineup against the Rangers.

    In 11 games since joining the big club, Cordero is hitting .241 with a .361 OBP, zero home runs and zero steals in 29 at-bats. Bobby Dalbec gets the start at first base with lefty Martin Perez on the hill for Texas.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Sitting against lefty

    Cordero is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

    Short-side platoon mate Bobby Dalbec will fill in at first base while the lefty-hitting Cordero sits against Chicago southpaw Dallas Keuchel. Since receiving a promotion from Triple-A Worcester on April 29, Cordero has gone 4-for-18 (.222 average) with a double, an RBI and two runs.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Not starting Friday

    Cordero isn't starting Friday against the White Sox, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Even though right-hander Vince Velasquez is starting for Chicago on Friday, Cordero will be out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games. Bobby Dalbec will start at first base and bat seventh.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Starts in RF

    Cordero started in right field and went 0-for-4 in Thursday's 8-0 loss to the Angels.

    Cordero is expected to start at first base when the Red Sox are facing right-handers, as they were Thursday against Shohei Ohtani, but he was moved to the outfield as part of the reshuffling to cover for ailing center fielder Enrique Hernandez (illness). Jackie Bradley, the team's primary right fielder, moved to center field. Cordero is 3-for-14 with one walk, a double and an RBI over 16 plate appearances since being called up.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Won't start versus lefty Wednesday

    Cordero is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

    The lefty-hitting Cordero has settled into the large side of a platoon at first base since being promoted from Triple-A Worcester on Friday, but he'll give way to the righty-hitting Bobby Dalbec as the Red Sox take on Angels southpaw Reid Detmers in the penultimate game of the series. Cordero turned in a quality performance in Tuesday's 4-0 win, going 2-for-3 with a run scored.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Raps two hits in win

    Cordero started at first base and went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Angels.

    Cordero started for the third time in last four games, all against right-handed starters. It looks like the platoon with Bobby Dalbec is in place for the time being. Cordero, who has hit safely in two straight contests (3-for-6, one walk), was once again removed late for Dalbec, who is considered the better defender.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Collects double, RBI in loss

    Cordero started at first base and went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double and an RBI in Sunday's 9-5 loss to Baltimore.

    Cordero's fourth-inning sacrifice fly gave Boston a short-lived 1-0 lead. He later produced his first hit since being called up Friday. After his callup, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Cordero would handle the strong side of a platoon at first base with Bobby Dalbec, although he did not play Saturday against a right-hander.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Enters platoon at 1B

    Cordero started at first base and went 0-for-4 in Friday's 3-1 win over the Orioles.

    Cordero was called up earlier in the day after Boston designated Travis Shaw for assignment. Red Sox manager Alex Cora told Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com that Cordero will slot in at first base against righties while Bobby Dalbec (.154 average on the season) will start against lefties.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Expected to join major-league club

    Cordero is expected to be called up by the Red Sox on Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Travis Shaw was designated for assignment by Boston on Friday after going 0-for-19 with seven strikeouts in seven appearances this year, so Cordero will serve as depth behind Bobby Dalbec at first base and in the outfield corners. Cordero appeared in 19 games at Triple-A Worcester to begin the year, and he slashed .296/.378/.535 with three homers, 23 RBI and 13 runs. The 27-year-old is a natural outfielder, but he learned first base last year and has been playing the position in the minors this week in anticipation of a promotion. Dalbec has hit just .154 this year, so Cordero should have an opportunity to carve out playing time if he performs well.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Called up, starting Friday

    Cordero had his contract selected by the Red Sox and will start at first base Friday against the Orioles, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Cordero posted a .296/.378/.535 slash line with three home runs, eight doubles, 23 RBI and 13 runs through 19 games with Triple-A Worcester, which was apparently enough to warrant another look in the majors. Travis Shaw was designated for assignment to clear room on the 28-man and 40-man rosters. Bobby Dalbec has also struggled early in 2022, so Cordero could carve out a sizable role if he can deliver a decent level of production for Boston.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Sent to minor-league camp

    Cordero was reassigned to Boston's minor-league spring training Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Cordero did all he could to earn a roster spot during spring training with a 1.152 OPS in 13 Grapefruit League games, but he was always facing long odds to make the Opening Day roster. The 27-year-old could make his way to the majors at some point this season if Alex Verdugo, Enrique Hernandez or Jackie Bradley miss time with an injury.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Having standout spring

    Cordero is batting .478 (11-for-23) with one walk, three doubles and two runs scored in 13 games this spring.

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora discussed the difference between Cordero at this year's spring training compared to last year with Ian Browne of MLB.com. The lefty-hitting outfielder missed the beginning of camp in 2021 due to COVID-19 and never overcame the missed time. "In his situation, I think it wasn't fair for him. He was on the roster and wasn't able to get here [on time]," Cora said. "I understand. I think he missed a big part of Spring Training. Him being here early [this year], you can see the results now. We really like where he's at offensively." The 27-year-old outfielder is not expected to break camp with the Red Sox, but he serves as organizational depth if Jackie Bradley's bat fails to improve drastically on last season's .497 OPS. Eight of Cordero's 13 Grapefruit League appearances have been as a right fielder, which is Bradley's projected starting assignment.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Clears waivers

    The Red Sox outrighted Cordero to Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    The toolsy outfielder was designated for assignment Thursday and cleared waivers over the weekend, allowing Boston to retain his rights. Unless he elects free agency or is granted his release later in the offseason, Cordero will join the Red Sox for spring training and compete for a bench role as a non-roster invitee. The 27-year-old mashed at Worcester (.931 OPS) this season, but he couldn't translate that success to the big-league level, delivering a .237/.260/.497 slash line while striking out 51 times in 136 plate appearances (37.5 percent).

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Designated for assignment

    Cordero was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Thursday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Cordero was sent down in early September but will now lose his spot on the 40-man roster. The 27-year-old appeared in 48 games for the Red Sox during the 2021 campaign and slashed .189/.237/.260 with a homer, 12 runs, nine RBI and a stolen base.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Sent back down

    Cordero was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Cordero rejoined the major-league club Sunday after Danny Santana (undisclosed) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list, but he'll head back to the minors after Santana was reinstated Tuesday. The 27-year-old has slashed .309/.402/.512 with seven homers, 41 runs, 39 RBI and nine stolen bases in 58 games at Triple-A Worcester this year.
