BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-04-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any word on Ryan Cordell? Mostly curious about his defense at SS. I see some errors, but am curious if there is enough there for him to stick at SS for a little while.
(Akalhar from Injuryville)
I haven't seen Cordell nor have I heard anything on him. Going to dig deeper on this one. Thanks. (CJ Wittmann)
2015-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Ryan Cordell as a hitter? Think he can play SS at the highest level?
(Tex2045 from Augusta, GA)
Love him as a hitter. He will take a bad swing or miss the barrel and the ball still comes off hard. Not a SS. I like the trial but he is a big dude who just doesn't have a feel for the spot. (Ryan Parker)
2014-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)On a scale from dud to DUDE, where is Ryan Cordell? Are there any red flags with him?
(Jay from PHX)
I'd say that he's a lower-case dude, but he's a dude nonetheless. For the uninitiated, Cordell was popped by the Rangers in the 11th round of the 2013 draft out of Liberty University. He always intrigued area scouts with his raw tools but was never able to put it together in his three years in college. For context, as a junior hitting in a fairly mediocre conference, Cordell slashed .261/.310/.391. Fast forward to his first full season, and in 89 games between the Sally League and the Carolina League, the 22-year-old posted a .318/.385/.530 line. Cordell will flash all five tools with near top-of-the-charts athleticism. He's a plus runner and is decent in center field and an asset in the corners. When I saw him in July, he had a few susceptibilities at the plate due to a slightly long swing, but he did a good job of sending liners all around the field. I want to see how the bat plays against upper-level arms, as a 22-year-old beating up on pitchers in A-ball isn't particularly noteworthy in and of itself. I have him as a good role 4 player who can provide versatility in the outfield and some pop off the bench. It's a good little scouting find for the Rangers in the 11th round. (Ethan Purser)
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you love, like-like, or just like Nomar Mazara? What about Ryan Cordell?
(MonkeyEpoxy from Amarillo)
LOVE and that may be an understatement. Mazara oozes talent. I sat on a series last season when he was in Hickory. He plays with such confidence and the barrel skills are there. The raw power showed in BP and in-game, along with him making good reads and throws from the outfield. The promotion to AA at age 19 didn't surprised me a bit. Although, it did sadden me since I missed him coming to Myrtle Beach. (CJ Wittmann)
