Francisco Cordero signs with Red Sox


With an opportunity to earn a bullpen spot, Francisco Cordero is looking to bounce back with the Boston Red Sox.

Cordero hasn’t pitched since 2012, as Boston Herald’s John Tomase reports, because of injuries, but ‘Coco’ Cordero could be a valuable commodity if he can stay healthy and pitch to his career numbers.

Over 14 years, ‘Coco’ has pitched for the Tigers, Rangers, Brewers, Reds, Blue Jays, and Astros. He has closing experience, having saved 329 games in his career with a 3.38 career ERA, including a 49 save season with Texas in 2004. Cordero will be 38 this season.
