Cordell has made a good first impression on his new teammates in camp after being signed to a minor-league contract by the Mets in January, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. "He's showing a little bit of everything -- drop down a bunt, oppo home run, he threw a guy out, diving catch," said Michael Conforto. "He's done a little bit of everything."
The 27-year-old posted a meager .645 OPS in 97 games with the White Sox last season, but Cordell's well-rounded skill set and right-handed bat could make him a good fit on the bench for a team that will feature lefty-hitting starting outfielders in Conforto and Brandon Nimmo. The team already has Jake Marisnick to fill that role, however, and whether there's room for Cordell on the initial 26-man roster could depend more on the health of players like Yoenis Cespedes (ankle) and J.D. Davis (shoulder) than his own spring efforts.
Cordell signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Thursday as a non-roster invitee, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Cordell elected free agency in October after being outrighted to Triple-A by the White Sox, but he'll find a new home with the Mets in 2020. The 27-year-old appeared in 97 major-league games for the White Sox last year, hitting .221/.290/.355 with seven home runs and 24 RBI.
Cordell was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday and will be released to minor-league free agency at the end of the World Series.
Cordell got into 97 games for the White Sox in 2019, hitting just .221/.290/.355. He'll turn 28 years old at the end of March and will likely be stuck with a minor-league deal this offseason.
Cordell made his second consecutive start in right field and went 1-for-2 with a double and run scored in Saturday's 8-7 loss to the Angels.
With Leury Garcia (personal) away from the team, an outfield spot opens up, which has been filled by Cordell the last two days while the White Sox faced left-handed starters. Garcia is expected to miss Sunday's game in which the Angels are throwing a right-hander. Cordell probably will be replaced by Daniel Palka or Ryan Goins.
Cordell was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.
Cordell has appeared in 81 games for the White Sox this season but hasn't had much success at the plate, hitting just .227/.284/.356 while striking out 29.6 percent of the time. Jon Jay (hip) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.
Cordell was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Cordell appeared in 12 games during his most recent stint with the White Sox, going 3-for-19 with a home run and a 2:6 BB:K. While nothing is official, Yoan Moncada (hamstring) is expected to return from the injured list ahead of Thursday's series opener against the Rangers to replace Cordell on the roster.
Cordell went 1-for-3 with a walk, solo home run and two runs scored Wednesday against the Tigers.
Cordell took Tyler Alexander deep in the second inning to record his sixth home run of the season. Since being recalled to big-league club on August 1, Cordell has earned just 12 plate appearances and managed two hits and two walks. Overall, he's hitting .232/.292/.362 across 207 plate appearances for the season.
The White Sox recalled Cordell from Triple-A Charlotte ahead of Thursday's game against the Mets.
He'll assume the active roster spot of third baseman Yoan Moncada, who was moved to the 10-day injured list with a Grade 1 right hamstring strain. After turning in an uninspiring .234/.286/.354 slash line over 194 plate appearances with the big club earlier this season, Cordell will likely be limited to a reserve role in the outfield while he's up with Chicago.
Cordell was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.
Cordell had started just one of the last seven games. He hasn't done much when he did play this season, posting a .234/.386/.354 slash line in 69 contests. Tim Anderson (ankle) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.
Cordell is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays.
He'll be on the bench for a fourth time in six games as the White Sox roll out an outfield of Leury Garcia, Adam Engel and Jon Jay. Both of the right-handed-hitting Cordell's last two absences have come in games in which the White Sox have opposed lefty starting pitchers, a development that doesn't bode well for the 27-year-old's chances of settling back into even a short-side platoon role.
Cordell is out of the lineup for Friday's game at Tampa Bay.
Cordell started five of the first seven games out of the All-Star break and went 9-for-17, but he'll head to the bench in the series opener. Adam Engel was recalled from Triple-A to bolster the White Sox's outfield depth after Charlie Tilson's demotion, which could limit Cordell's playing time.
Cordell went 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 6-5 loss to the Royals.
Cordell has started three straight games and six of the seven since the All-Star break. The White Sox on Thursday optioned fellow outfielder Charlie Tilson to the minors, so it looks like Cordell will be the primary beneficiary of the Eloy Jimenez (elbow) injury. Chicago will make a corresponding transaction Friday, so there could be another outfielder called up, which could impact Cordell's playing time.
Cordell is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals.
Cordell started nine of the White Sox's previous 10 games in center field and still appears secure as the team's primary option at the position over Charlie Tilson, who will get the starting nod Monday. Both Cordell and Tilson will likely be relegated to bench roles on a more regular basis once Tim Anderson (ankle) returns from the injured list, which could happen within the next 2-to-3 weeks. Anderson's arrival will bump Leury Garcia off shortstop and back to the outfield.
Cordell is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.
Cordell will be spelled in center field by Charlie Tilson in the series finale, ending a stretch of six consecutive starts. After racking up three extra-base knocks between both ends of July 3 doubleheader with the Tigers, Cordell has followed up with an 0-for-6 showing across his last two starts.
Cordell went 0-for-4 in Thursday's 11-5 loss to the Tigers.
Cordell was back in the lineup Thursday after going 4-for-7 with a double and two home runs while playing in both ends of a doubleheader Wednesday. He's started six of the last seven games in center field, and will continue to get at-bats there with Leury Garcia filling in at shortstop for Tim Anderson (ankle), but Cordell's .234/.291/.379 slash line suggests he's closer to the player seen Thursday than the one that belted two homers Wednesday.
Cordell went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Tigers.
Cordell, who was the starting center fielder in both ends of the doubleheader, delivered two hits and knocked in two runs in the first game of the twin bill. With Leury Garcia moving to shortstop while Tim Anderson (ankle) is on the injured list, center field is open for Cordell. Anderson could miss as much as six weeks, so Cordell could be in line for regular at-bats into August.
Cordell will start in center field and bat ninth in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Tigers, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Tim Anderson's (ankle) recent move to the injured list has resulted in Leury Garcia taking over as the team's everyday shortstop, opening up a spot in the outfield in the process. Cordell has been the beneficiary of Garcia logging more time in the infield, as the 27-year-old will draw into the starting nine for the fourth time in five games. Cordell boasts decent speed but a high strikeout rate, and a spot at the bottom of the batting order significant caps his fantasy upside.
Cordell is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers.
Cordell will retreat to the bench after drawing eight consecutive starts in the outfield, with most of those assignments coming at Charlie Tilson's expense. Considering that the White Sox opposed mostly left-handed pitchers during that stretch and Cordell only reached base at a .259 clip and produced just one extra-base hit, he still looks to be limited to the short side of a platoon with Tilson.
Cordell went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's 8-4 loss to the Yankees.
Cordell made his fourth straight start, all against left-handed starters or primary pitchers. He and the left-handed hitting Charlie Tilson are platooning in right field and serve as the White Sox's usual No. 9 hitter. Cordell has made little impact when in the lineup, batting just .129 (4-for-31) without an RBI over his last 15 games.
Cordell remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Since losing out on an everyday gig to Charlie Tilson in mid-May, Cordell has seen scant opportunities as Chicago's fourth outfielder. He'll be on the bench for the 10th time in 11 games and has logged only four at-bats during that span.
