    View Draft Report
    The 6-foot, 195-pound Cordero has been a high-profile closer at Fullerton since he was a freshman. He led the Big West Conference in saves his first two years, racking up a total of 26, while averaging 2.1 walks and 11.0 strikeouts per nine innings. Despite his slight frame, he has a durable, resilient arm and projects as a closer in pro ball. His save opportunities have been more limited this year because of his team's dominance, and scouts have had a difficult time getting a read on him because of his role. But he has quality stuff. He has command of three pitches that he can throw from different arm angles, including a fastball that ranges from 91-94 mph.
