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.

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.
