Albert Cordero -
Cordero was signed prior to the 2008 season as a non-drafted international free agent.
He played sporadically for two seasons in the DSL/VSL system and came stateside in 2010, splitting time with Savannah and Kingsport. His combined stats were: .282/.311/.469/.780, in 209-AB, 8-HR.
2011 Forecast: Scouts were very impressed with Cordero for the short time he played in Savannah, especially his ability to throw out runners trying to steal second base. I expect him to start there again in April.

And while Sanchez has hit the fast track all the way to triple-A, Cordero has essentially flopped in Savannah posting a .246/.284/.329 triple slash line. During the 2011 season, I’ve spoken to multiple scouts who simply don’t view him as a prospect. However, with a 5-5 night on July 8th including a pair of doubles and a triple, maybe Cordero can parlay a career night into a strong second half and regain a bit of the prospect status I once perceived him to have.

The Mets catching prospect went 4-for-5 with a homer and a career-high six RBIs as the Class A Savannah Sand Gnats rallied for a 7-6 victory over the Lexington Legends. Cordero, who signed as a non-drafted free agent in 2008, had never recorded more than three RBIs and had plated only six runs in his previous 29 games with the Mets' South Atlantic League affiliate.
