  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Not starting Wednesday

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Hitting star Monday

    Cordero went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Monday's 5-2 win over Detroit.

    Cordero's two-run single in the fifth inning gave Boston a four-run cushion on the way to its 14th win in 18 games during the month of June. Those were the first runs he's delivered in 12 contests. Cordero remains the strong-side platoon member at first base, but he entered Monday's contest on a 7-for-54 (.130) run since May 30. Bobby Dalbec, the other member of the platoon, has been more productive (.265) during that stretch, but the job-share remains in place.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Cordero is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Cordero will head to the bench after starting the past five games and going 4-for-16 with a double and two runs during that span. Bobby Dalbec will start at first base and bat ninth Sunday.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Late addition to lineup

    Cordero was added to Tuesday's lineup against the Athletics and is starting in right field.

    The 27-year-old was set to sit with left-hander Jared Koenig pitching for Oakland, but the first baseman will end up starting in right field after Christian Arroyo was scratched with an illness. Cordero has only logged 15 plate appearances against southpaws this year and has gone 3-for-13 with a home run and two RBI.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Sitting versus lefty

    Cordero is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    The lefty-hitting Cordero will give way to platoon mate Bobby Dalbec with southpaw Jared Koenig taking the mound for Oakland. Cordero could soon lose out on more work to Dalbec against right-handed pitching, too, given the former's struggles in recent weeks. Since seeing a four-game hitting streak come to an end May 30, Cordero has gone 3-for-38 with 15 strikeouts.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Sits against lefty

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

    He will head to the bench with lefty Robbie Ray on the hill for Seattle. Cordero is hitting .094 with one home run and one steal in 10 games this month.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Swipes bag in win

    Cordero went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks and a stolen base in Friday's 4-3 win over the Mariners.

    Cordero is now 0-for-12 in his last five games, though he's posted a 3:5 BB:K in that span. The 27-year-old also picked up his first stolen base of the second in the third inning. He hasn't recorded more than one steal in a season since he had five in 2018, so this is likely an unexpected contribution. Cordero's slump has his line down to .219/.294/.390 with three home runs, 18 RBI, 19 runs scored, seven doubles and a triple in 119 plate appearances. Bobby Dalbec's been a bit warmer at the dish lately, which has cut into what was previously the strong side of a platoon at first base for Cordero.

    Cordero is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Gets breather Tuesday

    Cordero isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Angels, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Launches game-winning HR

    Cordero went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 5-2 win over Oakland.

    Cordero broke open a pitchers' duel between Rich Hill and Frankie Montas with his three-run shot in the sixth inning. Montas had retired Cordero on splitters in his first two plate appearances, but the lefty hitter was waiting for it a third time and crushed it 406 feet. Cordero went 3-for-12 in the three-game series with two extra-base hits and six RBI. He continues as the strong side of a platoon at first base with Bobby Dalbec.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Takes turn at leadoff

    Cordero batted leadoff and went 0-for-4 in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the Reds.

    Cordero filled in for Enrique Hernandez, who had started 47 of the first 50 games for Boston. It was the seventh time Cordero's started a game as the leadoff batter during his MLB career.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Tallies two extra-base hits in win

    Cordero went 2-for-4 with a homer, a double, three RBI, two runs and a strikeout in Sunday's 12-2 win over the Orioles.

    Cordero extended his hitting streak to four games during Sunday's blowout win, and he blasted his second home run of the season when he hit a solo shot in the bottom of the second inning. The 27-year-old has three multi-hit performances over the last seven games, and he's slashed .241/.455/.684 with a homer, two doubles, eight RBI and seven runs during that time.

  • Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Out of Thursday's lineup

    Cordero is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Cordero started the past four games and will head to the bench after going 4-for-16 with a home run, a triple, six RBI and four runs during that stretch. Bobby Dalbec will start at first base with lefty Dallas Keuchel on the mound for Chicago.

  • 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.
