Cordier won one game and walked 32 in 21 innings as a high school junior, but he made a name for himself on the showcase circuit. He starred at the Area Code Games and the Perfect Game World Showcase. In his first game as a senior, he showed off three plus pitches (89-95 mph fastball, curveball, changeup) in front of 15 scouts. Cordier's secondary pitches haven't been as impressive since, especially his curve, but he has regularly thrown 90-92 mph and touched 94. His 6-foot-3, 197-pound frame offers room for projection, and his arm works well. The prize of North Carolina State's recruiting class, Cordier solidified his status as a second- or third-rounder at a Perfect Game Predraft Showcase in mid-May. He was the most impressive performer on hand, topping out at 94 and flashing a plus changeup.
