Cordell is not in the lineup Monday against Cleveland.
Cordell has started 15 straight games but hasn't done much at the plate, hitting .125/.282/.219 over his last 11 contests. Charlie Tilson, whose contract was selected Monday, heads straight into the starting lineup in right field.
Cordell went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 9-2 loss to the Red Sox.
Cordell's fifth-inning knock off Rick Porcello gave the White Sox life, but he's done very little with the full-time spot he was given after the team sent Daniel Palka back to Triple-A Charlotte in the middle of April. He immediately went on a four-game hit streak (6-for-15, two RBI) but has fallen since. Over his last 11 starts, Cordell is hitting .125 (4-for-32) with one extra-base hit and three RBI. With Chicago transferring Jon Jay (leg) to the 60-day injured list and Eloy Jimenez (ankle) on the 10-day IL, Cordell could continue to get regular at-bats.
Cordell went 1-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and two runs scored in Friday's 7-3 win over Detroit.
Cordell is two games into his new role as the White Sox's everyday right fielder, and he's figured prominently on offense. The little-known outfielder is a combined 4-for-7 with a home run and three runs scored in his two starts.
Cordell went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 9-7 loss to the Tigers.
Cordell was called up from Triple-A Charlotte as a replacement for Daniel Palka, who was optioned Wednesday. Manager Rick Renteria said Cordell will get steady run in right field, so this is a big opportunity for the 27-year-old outfielder who has 26 games of MLB experience. Cordell, who has two homers in 10 plate appearances with the major-league team in 2019, posted a .925 OPS in seven games at Charlotte. If John Jay (hip) ever gets healthy, he could move into right field ahead of Cordell.
Manager Rick Rentera said Thursday that Cordell will be used a full-time outfielder while he's up with the big club, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. "I'm going to run him out there every day," Renteria said of Cordell.
After the White Sox sent Daniel Palka down to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday, Cordell was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move and will enter the lineup immediately as Chicago's No. 9 hitter in Thursday's series opener with the Tigers. Though Palka had been deployed as a platoon player, Renteria suggested that Cordell would receive regular starts against both left- and right-handed pitching in what amounts to the 27-year-old's first extended look at the big-league level. Cordell's numbers in sporadic action in the majors haven't been impressive, but he's shown a nice blend of power and speed in the high minors, albeit with poor on-base percentages.
