MLB news: Margot placed on DL by Padres
The San Diego Padres have placed OF Manuel Margot on the 10 day DL with a calf injury. They have also recalled utility player Franchy Cordero.
Margot, 22, has a .259 batting average, four homers, 13 RBIs and five stolen bases in 185 ABs this season. He also has three triples. In two seasons in his career, Margot has a .257 batting average, those four homers, 19 RBIs, seven steals in 222 ABs. He's one of their top prospects, but needs to get on base more. It's been a small sample size, but Margot has a .295 OBP.
Cordero, also 22, has never played in the MLB. He has a .289 batting average, seven homers, 23 RBIs, and eight steals in 173 ABs for the El Paso Chihuahuas. He has a .273 average, 36 HRs, 210 RBIs and 94 steals in 1905 ABs in his six year minor league career.
