Cordero 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.
