He's strong. A humidor ball is no match for him.

 

 

Except when he’s playing CF

Just missed another bomb by a couple feet to dead center off Godley

Myers getting a scheduled day off today.  Will be interesting to see what they do with Franchy since Margot is back.  Pirela, Myers, and Hosmer aren't sitting, so Margot seems like the only guy he could steal some ABs from if Margot doesn't start hitting.  Wouldn't be surprised if Franchy becomes a bench bat or goes back to AAA if he does.

Move Pirela to 2nd base, problem solved

Another good game including a hit off a lefty reliever. Sucks he got picked off so no sb but the guy is gonna play until he stops hitting.

“Per Statcast (once it recovered from system shock), Cordero’s home run went 489 feet with a launch angle of 29 degrees and an exit velocity of over 116 miles per hour.

It is now the longest hit home run in the league this season, the longest home run by a Padres’ player in the Statcast era, and is the 10th longest home run in all of baseball since the introduction of Statcast.”

With the Padres starting to get back to 100% healthy, how many starts/week does he get?  Do they platoon him and see if he works his way into full time role?

Apparently, 489 foot home runs have gotten his manager's attention:

 

1. Franchy Cordero (L) CF
2. Wil Myers (R) RF
3. Eric Hosmer (L) 1B
4. Christian Villanueva (R) 3B
5. Jose Pirela (R) LF
6. Carlos Asuaje (L) 2B
7. Freddy Galvis (S) SS
8. A.J. Ellis (R) C
9. Bryan Mitchell (L) P

In the lineup against all RHPs would be great...hitting from the leadoff spot is a huge bonus!

Looks like Margot may not be long for the roster, maybe a AAA stint to work it out? 

 

Regardless looks like we now have an answer, at least for now, as to whether franch plays with a fully healthy roster

Major wheels legging out the routine FC for a single. The kind of max effort play that makes managers all moist.

I pegged him as a young Granderson earlier this year

yeah the OBP and K rate concerns me, but I like what I see when he makes contact and runs.
