Relevant Excerpts:

“In his aresenal, the fastball is key.  He has big time velocity that regularly can clock in triple digits.   His slider is a nasty pitch with plus potential.  He also throws a pretty good curve ball that his coaches like.  With a great feel for his off-speed offerings, Cordero’s fastball is even more devastating”

“The 24-year-old is able to throw first-pitch strikes on a consistent basis in order to get ahead of the opposition as well”

“Not far-fetched to anticipate Cordero making his big league debut in 2016”

“starting to flash signs of basic fastball command with the ability to throw the ball to basic quadrants (up and in, down and away), but precision still eludes him”

“has a bit more movement and sweep, but isn’t loopy, instead the movement is late and there is some drop to it (both real and perceived).  Cordero shows more command for the pitch than he does for his fastball.  He has shown he can break it away from righties and break it under the bat of lefties.  I feel comfortable calling it a current plus pitch with a chance to be a plus plus pitch long term”

“really raw, with the control problems and as far as I know, lacking any real secondaries”
“statistically unremarkable 2012 in the DSL, he was brought stateside to the GCL for 2013. It was even more surprising then, when 2014 found him jumped all the way to Lansing”
