RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The most fascinating minor league player page of 2015 may belong to Cordell. At the plate, he was a dominant player in 68 games at High-A, posting a .311/.376/.528 line with 13 homers and 10 steals. Then he was a completely different player in 56 games at Double-A, slashing just .217/.263/.335, while his strikeout rate almost doubled from 16.6% at High-A to 30.2% at Double-A. Adding to the intrigue, Cordell redefined what it means to be a utility player across both levels, starting 31 games at third base, 14 games at shortstop, two games at first base, and another 72 games in the outfield, with most of those starts coming in center. Had Cordell punished Double-A pitching the way he handled High-A pitching, it would be a lot easier to project him as an everyday player, considering his ability to play a number of premium positions. However, given his struggles after the promotion, that outcome is far less certain.
