Cooper (wrist) took batting practice Monday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Cooper is slowly working his way back from season-ending wrist surgery that he underwent in August of 2018. The 28-year-old appeared in just 14 games with the Marlins last season, slashing .212/.316/.242 in those appearances. Assuming he's fully healthy for spring training, Cooper will compete for an Opening Day roster spot, likely as a reserve first baseman/outfielder.
Cooper (wrist) is hopeful that he'll be healthy by spring training, but is yet to resume any "functional activity," according to President of Baseball Operations Michael Hill, Wells Dusenbury of The Sun Sentinel reports.
Cooper underwent surgery on his right wrist tendon in late August after hitting the disabled list with a sprain in July. The 27-year-old still has a few months to get back into the swing of things, though his availability this spring is vital in securing an Opening Day roster spot. In just 14 games with the big-league team last year, he went 7-for-33 with two RBI.
Cooper (wrist) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
Cooper will be eligible to return from the disabled list Sept. 23, though his season is likely over after he underwent surgery on his wrist at the end of August. This move frees up a roster spot for Tyler Kinley, who had his contract selected from the minors Tuesday.
Cooper underwent successful surgery on his right wrist tendon Friday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
Cooper remains without a concrete timetable after undergoing this procedure, though it would be a little surprising if he's back in action before the end of the 2018 campaign. Expect an update on his status once the Marlins are able to reevaluate Cooper's wrist in the coming days.
The wrist has been an issue for Cooper since he was hit by a pitch in the Marlins' second game of the season March 30. He was sidelined for a little over two months before rejoining the Marlins in July, only to aggravate the injury and return to the DL just over two weeks later. With the first baseman/outfielder suffering another setback last week in his fifth rehab appearance at High-A Jupiter, it appears the Marlins could be inclined to have Cooper address the issue once and for all by having him undergo surgery. He's scheduled to visit a hand specialist in the coming days before a decision on a procedure is made.
