Cordero to see Dr. Andrews tomorrow
In the perhaps-it-was-inevitable department, Washington Nationals closer Chad Cordero will travel tomorrow to Birmingham, Ala., where he will have his right shoulder examined by renowned orthopedic surgeon James Andrews.
Cordero, who threw a scoreless inning last night against the Braves, has had trouble with his velocity since spring training and spent two weeks on the disabled list with tendinitis in the shoulder. He said after last night's outing that he felt fine, but when he went back to the hotel, he felt a "clicking" in the shoulder. He called his agent, Larry Reynolds, this morning and Reynolds apparently called GM Jim Bowden.
"We just want to make sure there really is nothing wrong," Cordero said.
"Just clicking. That's all it was. No pain, nothing like that when I was throwing last night. When I got back in the room last night, I was moving my arm around, I had some clicking in the shoulder. I wasn't really sure what it was."
This is obviously a serious situation that bears watching. Andrews could find anything -- or nothing.
More as it becomes available.
