Free agent reliever Francisco Cordero is aiming for 2014 after undergoing surgery on his non-throwing shoulder, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Cordero was released by the Astros in September of last year.
Cordero, 37, posted a 7.55 ERA, 7.1 K/9, 4.1 BB/9, 2.06 HR/9, and 39.6% groundball rate in 39 1/3 innings for the Blue Jays and Astros last year. He lost the Jays' closer job in May, was traded to Houston in July, and hit the DL with a toe injury prior to his release. Cordero has 329 saves in his career, second among active players.
