• Veteran Chad Cordero allowed six runs on five hits on Monday. Cordero recorded two outs and wound up leaving with two men on base. Both runners scored. Still, Cordero hasn't pitched in the Majors since 2010 and every bit of exposure helps.
"Chad has good command when he's really on," said Scioscia. "He got some fastballs flat over the plate and then had trouble putting some people away in deeper counts. ... It's not a total surprise. Just so he's healthy and his arm rebounds well and he maintains his stuff, he's still coming."
