Cordero (quadriceps) made his debut in the Dominican Winter League on Tuesday, going 2-for-5 with two runs scored while playing for Leones del Escogido, Bill Center of MLB.com reports.
The report confirms that Cordero is healthy again after his 2019 campaign came to an end Aug. 31, when he wasn't activated from the 60-day injured list while rehabbing at High-A Lake Elsinore. Multiple injuries have limited Cordero to just 270 total plate appearances in affiliated ball over the past two seasons, so a stint in the DWL will help him pick up some much-needed game action to make up for the time he lost. After he remained on the Padres' roster following Monday's non-tender deadline, Cordero should get the chance to compete for an outfield job with the big club in spring training.
Cordero's quadriceps injury hasn't healed as quickly as the Padres had hoped, and he's unlikely to return this season, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Cordero's tools made him a hyped sleeper during the 2018 draft season, but injuries have limited him to just 49 games over the last two years. An elbow injury followed by a quadriceps injury have kept him out since early April this season. The talent is still there, but he'll be a deep sleeper at best this winter.
Cordero (quadriceps) has just two hits while whiffing six times in 13 at-bats since restarting a minor-league rehab assignment.
Cordero has played sporadically since returning to the field Aug. 24, taking part in four games in an eight-day span. He had a big triple to plate three runs in his first appearance with High-A Lake Elsinore on Friday but struck out three times in four at-bats the following day. With the Storm advancing to the California League playoffs Cordero will have additional opportunities to work on his swing, though the Padres may need to explore alternative rehab options in order to get him up to speed in time for an anticipated mid-September return to the big club. The 24-year-old has played in only nine major-league games this season as a result of injuries to his elbow and quad.
Cordero (quadriceps) is serving as the designated hitter in an Arizona League game Friday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
It's Cordero's first rehab appearance since he suffered the quad injury in mid-June during a rehab game while recovering from an elbow injury. The 24-year-old has been limited to nine major-league games this season, so it's likely to be a lengthy rehab stint. Cordero was previously targeting a return in mid-September, and that goal still seems realistic if he can avoid any setbacks.
Manager Andy Green said Thursday that Cordero (quadriceps) could return from the 60-day injured list around mid-September in a best-case scenario, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Cordero has played in just nine games with the big club this season, with a right elbow strain prompting a move to the IL in April before he picked up a left quad injury during a minor-league rehab assignment in June. The latter issue remains the sole concern for the outfielder at this juncture, but Cordero took a meaningful step forward in his recovery Thursday by running the bases at Petco Park. Cordero will presumably ramp up his workload in the weeks to come before potentially restarting a rehab assignment in late August or early September. Due to the extensive time he's already missed, Cordero probably wouldn't be asked to handle anything more than a part-time role if he ends up rejoining the Padres in September.
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) left a rehab game Wednesday with Triple-A El Paso with a left leg injury, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
He homered in the third inning and then exited in the sixth inning after trying to beat out a grounder, ending up on the ground after running through the bag. The nature of the injury suggests it might be a hamstring strain, but there has been no official word. Cordero was getting there with his timing during this rehab stint, so it now sounds like the leg is a bigger issue than the elbow. Consider him out indefinitely.
Cordero (elbow) went 1-for-4 in Monday's game with Triple-A El Paso and is now batting .214/.298/.452 with 18 strikeouts through 10 rehab games (42 at-bats).
The 24-year-old started well on his rehab stint, homering twice in his first four games, but he's since gone cold (3-for-his-last-22 with 13 strikeouts). Cordero's biggest issue remains the swing-and-miss -- his K-rate at the big-league level is pushing 40 percent -- but outfield defense is a growing concern as well. The Padres could activate Cordero at any point, though in light of his recent slide they may opt to keep him in El Paso for the maximum 20 days allowed for position players, and possibly beyond if they feel he needs additional time to shake the rust.
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.
Cordero (elbow) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso on Friday.
Cordero has apparently been playing in extended spring training games over the past couple of weeks, so the hope is that he'll be ready to rejoin the Padres after a brief minor-league rehab stint -- assuming he shows no issues with his timing. The 24-year-old, who has been sidelined since early April with a sore right elbow, should provide a decent left-handed bat for the Padres once healthy. Cordero went 5-for-15 with a double, a stolen base and a 4:7 BB:K in nine games before landing on the shelf.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune told Jon Schaeffer of XTRA 1360 on Wednesday that the Padres are hoping to get Cordero (elbow) back "very soon."
The team has provided next to nothing on Cordero's progress in the weeks since he landed on the injured list with a sore right elbow. It's still unclear where exactly he stands in his rehabilitation, but this statement would seem to suggest Cordero is close to playing in minor-league games. Josh Naylor will be up in the meantime to provide some left-handed balance to the batting order.
Cordero (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Cordero exited Saturday's game against the Cardinals with a sore right elbow, and while he was reportedly available off the bench Sunday, it turns out the issue is serious enough to warrant a stay on the shelf. Luis Urias was recalled from the minors in a corresponding roster move, while Manuel Margot figures to cover center field in Cordero's absence.
Cordero (elbow) is not starting Sunday against the Cardinals but is available off the bench, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Cordero exited Saturday's game due to soreness in his right elbow, so his availability Sunday confirms the issue to be minor. The Padres didn't want to take any chances as the 24-year-old underwent surgery to the same elbow last summer. Manuel Margot will start in center field Sunday for the series finale.
Cordero was pulled from Saturday's win over the Cardinals due to a sore right elbow, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Cordero was replaced during the fifth inning Saturday by Manuel Margot, though the injury wasn't announced until after the game. The 24-year-old underwent surgery to remove a bone spur in the same elbow last summer, but the team indicated the current issue is minor. Cordero should be considered day-to-day for now, while Margot is likely to see the bulk of the action in center field during his absence.
Cordero went 2-for-3 with a home run, four RBI, two runs scored and a walk in Saturday's spring game against the Royals.
Cordero had only one extra-base hit this spring entering Saturday as he has yet to find his footing at the plate, but hopefully the home run provides a spark with Opening Day just around the corner. The 24-year-old has increased odds of starting the regular season in the majors with Travis Jankowski sidelined following wrist surgery.
Cordero went 1-for-2 with an RBI double in Monday's Cactus League win over the Indians.
It was his first extra-base hit of the spring. Cordero, who had surgery last year to remove a bone chip from his elbow, has struck out in seven of his 16 at-bats already. He could probably use more time back on the farm to knock off some rust, but with Travis Jankowski going down with a broken wrist, Cordero would seem to stand a better chance to break camp as a reserve outfielder.
Cordero (elbow) will make his 2018 winter-league debut with Leones del Escogido on Tuesday.
Cordero is set to return to active competition for the first time since June. The Padres picked up on a mechanical change Cordero was making to compensate for a bone spur in his left elbow and ultimately sent him for surgery to have it removed. Before going down with the injury, Cordero showed flashes, but he continued to strike out at a high rate (35.7 percent) and routinely misread balls off the bat in the outfield. He will have to fight for a job in spring training.
