Cordero retired last June after getting released by the Blue Jays. Shoulder problems wrecked his career after seasons of 47, 29 and 37 saves with the Nationals from 2005-07. He’s pitched just 14 innings since (4 1/3 in 2008 and 9 2/3 with the Jays in 2010). Cordero also dealt with the personal tragedy of losing his baby daughter to sudden infant death syndrome in 2010.
Still just 30, Cordero is aiming to pitch in winter ball and catch on with a major league team after that.
