Cordell joined the Phillies on a minor-league deal in late April, Baseball America reports.
Cordell has appeared in 121 games at the big-league level over the last three seasons but has done very little at the plate, hitting .202/.263/.328. The Phillies have a notable hole in center field this season, but nothing in Cordell's track record indicates he's the solution to their problems.
Cordell was designated for assignment by the Mets on Monday.
Cordell played a very small role for the Mets this season, grabbing one hit in eight trips to the plate. As a 28-year-old with a career .202/.263/.328 slash line in 121 major-league games, he's unlikely to be anything other than a fringe player next season.
Cordell had his contract selected by the Mets after Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The 28-year-old will join the 40-man roster between games of the twin bill with Andres Gimenez (oblique) heading to the injured list. Cordell appeared in four games during his brief stint in the majors earlier this season and went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and two strikeouts.
Cordell cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Mets' alternate training site, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
Cordell was designated for assignment earlier in the week but will remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The 28-year-old appeared in four games before being let go and went 1-for-4 with a stolen base.
Cordell was designated for assignment by the Mets on Wednesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Cordell will be the roster casualty after the Mets added Ariel Jurado in a trade from the Rangers in a corresponding move. He spent just a week on the Mets' active roster, going 1-for-4 at the plate in limited action.
Cordell was recalled to the majors Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Jake Marisnick (hamstring) was sent to the injured list in a corresponding move. Cordell should fill a reserve outfield role during his time with the big club. He hit .221/.290/.355 with seven homers across 247 plate appearances with the White Sox in 2019.
The Mets re-signed Cordell to a minor-league deal Monday and announced he would be included in the team's 60-man player pool.
Though the report implies that Cordell was released by the Mets at some point during MLB's hiatus, he was willing to rejoin the organization as part of its expanded roster. Cordell had inked a minor-league deal with the Mets in January after slashing .221/.290/.355 with seven home runs and three steals across 247 plate appearances with the White Sox in 2019.
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.
