Padres' Franchy Cordero: Out until September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Undergoes further testing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Suffers quad injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Suffers leg injury at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Cold with El Paso
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Homers again in rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Ready for rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Inching closer to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Available off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Dealing with sore elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cordero was pulled from Saturday's win over the Cardinals due to a sore right elbow, AJ Cassavell of 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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Hits first spring homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Knocks first double of spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Ready for winter ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Late-September return a possibility
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cordero (elbow) played catch prior to Friday's game Friday against the Rockies, Katie Woo of reports.

It was Cordero's first reported on-field activity since he was placed on the disabled list May 28 with a bone spur in his right elbow. While the Padres haven't officially ruled out a late-September return for the rookie outfielder, it's more likely that he'll remain on the DL for the rest of the season and prepare for a winter-ball assignment. Cordero should be healthy well in advance of spring training and will look to win a starting role in the outfield.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Likely done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Padres manager Andy Green said that Cordero is leaning toward undergoing surgery to address a bone chip in his right elbow, Bill Center of reports. "The expectation right now is that he's going to opt for surgery and go ahead and get that taken care of and move forward that way," Green said. "His return is unlikely this year, but hopefully he'd be ready to play winter ball and be back with us next spring and ready to go."

Even if Cordero opts against surgery and treats the injury through alternative methods, there's a good chance the Padres would shut him down well into the second half, as the club has little incentive to rush the 23-year-old back into action amid a non-contending season. Getting surgery in the coming weeks would allow Cordero to enter the 2019 campaign at full strength, though it would officially end what had been a promising rookie year for the outfielder, who supplied 13 extra-base hits and stole five bases in 40 games before hitting the disabled list in late May. If healthy next spring, the toolsy Cordero is a strong candidate to break camp with a full-time role and will have plenty of appeal as a post-hype sleeper.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Heads to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cordero (elbow) was shifted to the 60-day disabled list Thursday.

Cordero won't be eligible to return until at least July 27 as a result of the move, which frees up a roster spot for the return of Colin Rea (lat). Cordero is currently contemplating surgery for a bone spur in his right elbow that would potentially sideline him for the remainder of the season.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: May need surgery for bone spur
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cordero is heading to the Padres' Peoria Sports Complex Wednesday to determine whether he'll need surgery for a bone spur in his right elbow.

Cordero was shut down in the middle of a rehab at-bat after feeling something in his elbow Sunday. An MRI revealed that what he felt was a bone spur. If he does indeed need surgery, he could miss an extended period of time, potentially the entire season, though it's possible he'll be able to rest the elbow and play again sooner. More should be known after further evaluation Wednesday.

Padres' Franchy Cordero: Shut down after setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cordero saw Dr. Neal ElAttrach on Tuesday after feeling something in his elbow while taking a swing Sunday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic San Diego reports.

The 23-year-old was pulled from a rehab game mid at-bat after feeling discomfort and he has since been shut down from all activity. If it's found that Cordero is dealing with some sort of ligament injury, the issue would likely cost him an extended period of time, perhaps the rest of the season. Hopefully the setback will prove minor, but either way, there is now a bigger window for Travis Jankowski to continue seeing regular starts against right-handed pitching.
