ERIK CORDIER NEWS

Which Giants pitcher hit 100 mph four times on Friday?

Being the farthest or the fastest is great if you’re an Olympian. If you’re a major league pitcher, or aspiring to be one, it only means so much. So Erik Cordier’s eyes didn’t light up just like the radar guns that clocked his first spring training appearance as a Giant on Friday.

First Pitch: 12 Pirates Pitchers Who Throw 98+ MPH

This week’s podcast went up today, and on the show we talked about whether Gregory Polanco or Jameson Taillon should come up in September. The argument for Taillon was that the Pirates should be “all hands on deck”, and he could provide value out of the bullpen with a 99 MPH fastball and a plus curveball.

The hot-stove isn’t even lukewarm yet for the Pirates, but here’s a quick rundown of the past week: Pirates 2013 single-game tickets are on sale now. The Bucs signed six minor leaguers: Felix Pie, Brooks Brown, Erik Cordier, David Bromberg, Luis Sanz, and Alex Valdez.  None of them seem particularly interesting, although Pie has played a fair amount in the majors (but not well...

2012 player preview: Erik Cordier

Time for a guy who could be a factor for the Braves this season, but not in his current role: Erik Cordier. The 25 (26 this month) year-old Cordier was acquired from the Braves way back in March of 2007 from the Royals in exchange for Tony Pena Jr, then a shortstop. He missed all of the 2007 following Tommy John surgery, and only threw 45 innings in 2008 for the GCL and Rome. In...
