Francisco Cordero will have his right foot examined by a Houston doctor this week.

Cordero has been dealing with inflammation in the sesamoid bone in his right foot for a few weeks and was finally placed on the disabled list Friday. Jeff Keppinger and Jason Castro previously dealt with a similar injury and had to have the bone removed, costing them 3-4 months of action. However, Astros manager Brad Mills said surgery is not considered an option at this point for Cordero.
