Francisco Cordero‘s nightmare season may be coming to an end courtesy of another nightmare.

According to MLB.com beat writer Brian McTaggart, the right-hander has been diagnosed with a sprained ligament in a toe on his right foot and will be in a protective walking boot for the foreseeable future.

Cordero has been on the disabled list since the first week of August, but his toe injury was originally described merely as inflammation. Further testing this week revealed it to be a much more serious issue.

The 37-year-old registered a 5.77 ERA and 1.81 WHIP across 34 1/3 innings with the Blue Jays before being traded to the Astros in late July. He then allowed 13 hits and 11 earned runs in five innings with Houston.

    Probably sprained it by running off the mound into the dugout too fast.

    Holy crap, those are some bad numbers in Houston…hadn’t gotten around to checking Cordero’s stats since the Jays traded him. At least he’s been consistent.

    Brad Mills probably said when he went to the mound, “..You still here?”
