"Jimmy has plus-plus stuff," White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing said. "The biggest thing with Jimmy is controlling the strike zone." Cordero is expected to fill a middle relief role this season....

White Sox's Jimmy Cordero: Expected bullpen role
Cordero is projected to be part of the White Sox's bullpen to start the 2020 season, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. He's allowed one run on two hits, a walk and a hit batsman while striking out five over 4.2 spring innings.
The three organizations that employed Cordero in 2019 before he landed with the White Sox must be wondering what they missed. The flame-throwing right-hander allowed one earned run over 17.2 innings at Triple-A Charlotte before pitching effectively out of Chicago's bullpen (2.89 ERA) over the second half of the season. For a pitcher that throws mid-90s, Cordero doesn't strike out many batters, but the sink on it had opponents hitting balls into the ground (.189 BAA). He's expected to be part of a potentially good bullpen that should be able to shepherd leads from the seventh inning on.... See More ... See Less

The White Sox recalled Cordero from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Over his 13 relief outings with the affiliate, Cordero gave up one earned run and posted a 0.91 WHIP and 14 strikeouts across 17.2 innings. He'll likely work in lower-leverage situations initially for Chicago but could climb the depth chart quickly in a bullpen lacking in high-impact arms.... See More ... See Less
