Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Nationals are considering offers for Chad Cordero, so long as the players acquired would help in their rebuilding program. They're looking for a package of even younger pitching in return.
Cordero has averaged something like 5-4, 30 saves, 77 IP, 27 BB, 74 K with a 2.66 ERA over the last three years (he's been consistent), at ages 22-24.
The only negative that jumped out at me in his numbers was the 30 HR allowed in those 230 innings. Washington is a pitchers park, so one HR every seven IP is high.
Would a package of Lofgren, Sipp or Perez, and Guthrie or Davis be enough to acquire Cordero? Would it be worth it?
