Andrews: Cordero does not need surgery

Chad Cordero's examination with Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., is over, and Andrews reaffirmed the diagnosis of tendinitis. The club says Cordero will not need time on the disabled list.

Cordero had an MRI exam and what the club referred to as a "thorough examination of the shoulder." Andrews also found general weakness in the shoulder.

Right now, Cordero will continue to pitch and try to strengthen his shoulder through "various exercises designed in conjunction with the Nationals' athletic training staff."

I have a call into Cordero, and if/when he calls me back (I believe he has a 6 p.m. flight from Birmingham) you'll be the first to know.

Lineups:

New York:
Reyes -- 6
Castillo -- 4
Wright -- 5
Beltran -- 8
Church -- 9
Delgado -- 3
Pagan -- 7
Schneider -- 2
Santana -- 1

Washington:
Lopez -- 4
Guzman -- 6
Zimmerman -- 5
Johnson -- 3
Kearns -- 9
Milledge -- 8
Pena -- 7
Nieves -- 2
Redding -- 1

Talked to both Schneider and Church, and they are very, very impressed by the new park.

Also: Paul Lo Duca is feeling a bit better, the first time I've heard him say that since he was originally hit on the hand by a pitch 10 days ago. He swung the bat today, and will do so again tomorrow.
