According to Bill Ladson of MLB.com, Nationals reliever Chad Cordero was outrighted to Triple A today. He refused the assignment and is now a free agent. This comes as no surprise, as GM Jim Bowden admitted in July that he would non-tender Cordero.
Cordero, 26, had surgery in July to repair tears in his labrum and biceps tendon. He hopes to be ready for spring training.
