Blue Jays Release Chad Cordero

The Blue Jays released reliever Chad Cordero from their Triple-A club, reports Todd Dewey of the Las Vegas Review-Journal

Cordero, 29, signed a minor league deal with the Jays in January.  Cordero had 128 career saves under his belt as a 25-year-old with the Nationals, but he had surgery to repair a labrum tear in his shoulder in July of '08.  Since then he has been a part of the Mariners, Mets, and Jays organizations.  This year at Triple-A he posted an 8.66 ERA, 3.6 K/9, 4.6 BB/9, and 2.5 HR/9 in 17 2/3 innings, a departure from his Triple-A work of 2010.

    I had the same surgery, its brutal, your range and arm strength are never the same

    its no wonder he never regained form.  

  2. Kinda sad this happened to him. He was gonna be a beast.

    Oh well, I wish him well but this does not really affect the Jays too much, Cordero was not even on the 40 man roster as far as I know.

      nope, minor league contract. But would have been a cool comeback story

        That is what I figured, I like comeback stories as much as the next guy but right now I am looking for more of a success story in terms of us making the playoffs soon.

    just too bad. he pitched well for the nats before his injury. and he just seemed like a really good guy, too. definitely the kind of guy you rooted for to make a comeback.
