Chad Cordero

Right-handed closer

Cordero relies on a low-90s fastball and a slider as his primary pitches. He started developing a change-up in 2006, but mainly throws it to left-handed batters.

He's an extreme flyball pitcher who gives up the occasional homer as he walks the tight rope at the end of games.

Chad Cordero is arbitration eligible for the first time in 2007.
