BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 At one point a highly touted prospect, Erik Cordier continues to see his stock slide due to injuries.
2012 Erik Cordier is a big and blocky right-hander with a zipper and control issues. His future is in the bullpen, since his stuff is no longer good enough to overcome those issues.
2011 Big righty Erik Cordier isn't the same power arm he was prior to Tommy John surgery, but he could still end up a nice middle reliever.
2010 Acquired from the Royals three years ago for Tony Pena, Jr., Erik Cordier was once a highly-touted arm, but his stuff is far from what it used to be after a series of arm injuries.
