Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says the Brewers are maintaining interest in Chad Cordero, even after signing Trevor Hoffman to close. Writes Haudricourt,
"[Brewers assistant GM Gordon] Ash said the Brewers were still discussing whether to put in an offer to the agent of former Washington closer Chad Cordero, who held a throwing session in California last week for interested clubs. Cordero is coming off shoulder surgery and is not expected to be ready to pitch until a month or two into the season. ‘It’s a risk decision,’ said Ash. "It’s a matter of how much (financial) risk you want to take. His agent has let it be known he’s going to sign somewhere.’"
Cordero auditioned 10 days ago for 7 teams, one of which was Milwaukee. The Marlins and Dodgers have since expressed interest. Also potentially interested: the Angels, Mets, Cardinals, D’Backs, Rangers, Twins, Nats, and Tigers.
