​​San Diego Padres outfielder​ Franchy Cordero recently underwent an MRI on his injured right elbow which revealed a bone spur. He could rest and rehab it and see where it goes, but the 23-year-old is reportedly considering going in for surgery.

​​If he does opt to go under the knife, Cordero would out for most of the rest of the 2018 season. Cordero initially landed on the disabled list with a strained right forearm, but during his rehab assignment he was shut down after feeling some discomfort in his elbow when swinging a bat.

​​Cordero was one of the brighter spots in the Padres lineup before he landed on the disabled list. In 40 games, the outfielder was slashing .237/.307/.439 with 13 extra-base hits (seven home runs) and 19 RBI. 


There's plenty of swing-and-miss in his game, but he possesses some legit power that translates at the big league level. If he can refine his swing and be a little more disciplined, he'll be a valuable piece for this team.
