AUGUST 11: Cordero required a surgical procedure to repair damage to his right hamate bone, manager Mike Matheny told reporters including Alec Lewis of The Athletic (Twitter link). Young infielder Jeison Guzman will get his first crack at the majors. He was already on the 40-man roster but has now been tapped for active duty.
AUGUST 10: The Royals have placed outfielder Franchy Cordero on the 45-day injured list, per a club announcement. He is sidelined with a wrist injury.
While this won’t officially end Cordero’s season, it makes it quite unlikely he’ll return to action. He originally hit the injured list on August 9th, so he won’t be eligible to return until late September.
Soon to turn 26, the recently acquired outfielder struggled to a .154/.185/.231 slash in his first 27 plate appearances with the Royals. He’ll be eligible for arbitration over the offseason.
Hmm how many more no hitters and perfect games will he cost in his career ?
As long as he is a Royal, my guess is not many.
surprise surprise…he was bad and now he was injured. as was to he expected.
He’s had some terrible luck with injuries… I mean a few years ago he was considered a legit prospect but he hasn’t even come close to playing a full season since then. Not sure how good he really is or isn’t at this point… but just sucks for him to never even really get the chance.
He was a failed short stop who could not field for anything. He has power but strikes out way too much, for him it’s homer or go home
Looking more and more like “go home” every day.
Love me some Franchy, but man he’s made of glass. Good decision by Preller to move on from him, even if Hill hasn’t been too successful.
He he ever becomes a star just call him Franchy “Raunchy Franchise” Cordero
A B-Ref link for the reporter. Don’t think I’ve seen that before.
Almost as many homeruns as strike outs too. Not bad while hitting .476.
Guy can’t catch a break. Love to see what he could in a healthy full season.
