Orioles' Franchy Cordero: Pushing for roster spot
Cordero is batting .478 (11-for-23) with five extra-base hits, seven RBI and six runs scored over nine Grapefruit League games.
Cordero is making a great case to make the Opening Day roster. He's viewed as a candidate to back up Ryan Mountcastle at first base, though Cordero also has plenty of experience in the outfield -- versatility that could be valuable. With non-roster invitees Lewin Diaz (shoulder) and Ryan O'Hearn (knee) battling injuries, Cordero could further his chances to break camp with the Orioles by staying healthy. He slashed .219/.300/.397 across 275 plate appearances with the Red Sox a year ago.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Franchy Cordero: Inks deal with Baltimore
Cordero agreed to a split contract with the Orioles on Friday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
The Red Sox opted not to tender Cordero a contract for 2023, but he'll remain in the AL East. The 28-year-old appeared in 84 games last season and had a .219/.300/.397 slash line with eight home runs, 29 RBI and four stolen bases. With the split contract he'll make $1.35 million if in the majors and $450,000 in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Franchy Cordero: Non-tendered by Boston
The Red Sox declined to tender Cordero (ankle) a contract for 2023, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Cordero is blessed with incredible tools, but he's been unable to solve his swing-and-miss problem. He struck out in one third of his plate appearances last year before ankle sprains put him on the shelf, and he has a 34.8 percent strikeout rate in parts of six big-league seasons. The Red Sox will look to spend in free agency on a more consistent lefty bat.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Lands on 60-day IL
Cordero (ankle) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
The 28-year-old suffered sprains on both sides of his right ankle Monday against the Rays, and the move to the 60-day IL has officially ended his season. Cordero played in 84 major-league games this year and saw most of his action at first base for Boston, and he finished the campaign with a .219/.300/.397 slash line, eight home runs, 29 RBI and a 33.5 percent strikeout rate....

Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Likely out for season
Cordero (ankle) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with sprains on both sides of his right ankle and is expected to miss the rest of the 2022 season, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
The 28-year-old suffered the injury during Monday's matchup with the Rays, and it appears it will bring an end to his 2022 campaign. Assuming he doesn't return, Cordero will finish the year with a .219/.300/.397 slash line with eight home runs and 29 RBI in 275 plate appearances. He is entering his final year of arbitration eligibility.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Exits with ankle sprain
Cordero suffered a right ankle sprain Monday against the Rays, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
He went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts and then suffered the injury in the bottom of the fifth inning while crashing into the outfield wall. With Triston Casas up, Cordero had already shifted to a bench role, so his mixed-league value was already trending down. Christian Arroyo could get extra playing time while Cordero is unavailable. Cordero will get an MRI, although the team doesn't believe he has ligament damage, according to Red Sox Stats.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Carted off Monday
Cordero was carted off the field in the bottom of the fifth inning during Monday's game against the Rays due to an apparent right leg injury, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
Cordero crashed into the wall on a double in the bottom of the fifth inning and was unable to put much weight on his right leg before he was carted off the field. The exact nature and severity of his injury aren't yet clear. Prior to his departure, he went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts.... See More ... See Less

Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Back at first base
Cordero started at first base and went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's 10-5 loss to Minnesota.
A day after manager Alex Cora had Christian Arroyo start at first base against right-hander Dylan Bundy, the manager inserted Cordero there against right-hander Chris Archer. Cora said last week that Arroyo would play "a lot" at first base after second baseman Trevor Story returned from the injured list, but that may not be the case. Additionally, Eric Hosmer (back) is on the verge of a rehab assignment, so whatever happens at first base now could be irrelevant by the weekend or early next week.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Homers before losing at-bats
Cordero started at first base and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Sunday's 12-4 loss to the Rays.
Cordero homered for a second straight start, but his playing time is expected to take a hit going forward. Red Sox manager Alex Cora told Christopher Smith of MassLive.com that the hot-hitting Christian Arroyo will play "a lot" at first base now that second baseman Trevor Story is off the injured list. The manager said Arroyo could slot in at first as early as Monday.... See More ... See Less

Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Wallops homer
Cordero went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's 9-8 win over Tampa Bay.
Cordero's fourth-inning homer -- a 356-foot shoe that wrapped around the Pesky Pole in right field -- helped Boston overcome an early 4-1 deficit. It was his third long ball over his last five games. With Eric Hosmer (back) on the injured list, the the lefty-hitting Cordero and righty-hitting Bobby Dalbec have filled in at first base in what has been a return to the platoon that had been in place prior to Boston acquiring Hosmer....

Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Clears Green Monster
Cordero went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 3-2 extra-inning loss to the Blue Jays.
With Eric Hosmer (back) on the IL, Cordero earned his second straight start and made the most of it with a two-run home run over the Green Monster which gave Boston an early lead. Wednesday was also the first time that Cordero reached base three or more times since June 29. While he has failed to put it together in the majors this season, this performance was reminiscent of his body of work at Triple-A, where he achieved a wRC+ of 157 over 136 plate appearances....

Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Sitting against righty Thursday
Cordero is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Cordero will head to the bench after going 3-for-7 with two home runs and two walks over Boston's last three games, allowing Bobby Dalbec to pick up a start at first base. Though he's on the bench while Toronto brings right-hander Kevin Gausman to the hill, the lefty-hitting Cordero is still expected to handle the large side of a platoon at first base with Dalbec while Eric Hosmer (back) is on the injured list....

Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Rejoins big club
The Red Sox recalled Cordero from Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. He'll start at first base and bat eighth in Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, according to Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican.
Cordero was returned to Triple-A on Monday after he slugged a pinch-hit home run while serving as the 27th man in Sunday's Little League Classic matchup with the Orioles, but he'll be back with the big club just one day later after Eric Hosmer (back) was moved to the IL. In 25 big-league games since the beginning of July, the 27-year-old Cordero has produced a middling .237 on-base percentage and a 43.9 percent strikeout rate. As was the case before Hosmer arrived via trade in August, the lefty-hitting Cordero is likely to serve on the large side of a platoon at first base with the righty-hitting Bobby Dalbec during his latest stint in the majors....

Red Sox's Franchy Cordero: Homers as pinch hitter
Cordero hit a solo home run in his lone at-bat during Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Orioles.
Cordero was named the 27th man for the Little League Classic earlier in the day, and he delivered a key hit. He went yard in the eighth inning off Orioles reliever Dillon Tate, tying the game at 2-2. As the designated 27th man, Cordero's time on the active roster could be short unless the Red Sox elect to put Eric Hosmer (back) or Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) on the injured list prior to Tuesday's series opener at Fenway Park versus the Blue Jays. Cordero is slashing .222/.300/.380 with five homers through 245 plate appearances in the majors this year.... See More ... See Less
