Cody missed the first three months of the 2018 season as he tried to rehab through right elbow inflammation. He made two rehab outings with the AZL Rangers in July, throwing 5 scoreless innings.[18] He underwent Tommy John Surgery on July 19th, 2018 and missed the remainder of the 2018 season.[19] Cody missed the entire 2019 season as he continued to rehabilitate following surgery.[20]
