Cordero eyes comeback on Minors deal with Halos


TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Angels agreed to terms on a Minor League contract with former closer Chad Cordero on Wednesday.

The deal, however, does not include a Spring Training invite. So the 30-year-old right-hander will simply report to Minor League camp this weekend.

Cordero last pitched in the Majors in 2010, appearing in nine games for the Mariners, and spent the early part of the 2011 season pitching in the Blue Jays' farm system, posting a 9.89 ERA in 23 2/3 innings. He later began a stint in independent ball, then retired in June of that year and spent 2012 away from baseball.

With the Expos/Nationals from 2004-07, Cordero posted a 2.83 ERA, saved 127 games and made an All-Star team before eventually succumbing to major shoulder surgery.
