Will Carroll thinks that Cordero is hurt:

Jamey Newberg recently reminded me that last July, I got a chance to see Coco Cordero pitch and almost immediately said he was hurt. As with most injuries, I wish I was wrong. Cordero is pitching like a guy fighting to pitch like he once did when he was healthy. Some pitchers know how to win without their best stuff, which makes for great rain delay stories. Some rely on that very stuff and have very little margin for error. Lose a bit off the fastball, some movement on the tail, or the separation for their change and they go from elite to released in a hurry. I hope the Rangers coaching and medical staff can put Cordero back together. See, the reaction about Cordero being hurt was my second impression. The first was that he's a special pitcher.
