2010 Player Preview: Erik Cordier

Written by Joe Lucia on .

Hooray for obscure minor league players that won't make an impact anywhere this season! WOOOOOOOO! Anyway, Erik Cordier. Who is Erik Cordier you're probably saying? He was acquired from the Royals, and missed the 2007 season due to Tommy John surgery. 2009 was his first full year since...well ever, posting 25 starts for Myrtle Beach. Cordier was...effective, despite his lack of sexy numbers. For the season, he posted a 3.87 ERA, which was misleading as he walked a whopping 5 and a half batters per 9 while only striking out 6 and a half. Thats not a K:BB ratio you want to put on your resume. He also allowed a hair under a homer per 9. So how was his ERA so low? One aspect of things was his home park: Coastal Stadium in Myrtle Beach is an absolute pitchers haven. Cordier wasn't even that lucky, as his BABIP was .287, which while low is still close to average. I legitimately have no idea how his ERA was under 4.00...it just doesn't make sense to me. So what do I think Cordier will do in 2010? Not a whole lot. He'll be in Mississippi, and likely will serve as an average starter at best. He's not worth a spot in any ridiculously deep fantasy league. He'll likely be a reliever in the long run if he makes the majors. Don't think of Cordier as some sort of top prospect. He's an arm...that's really it. Final projection: middle of the road starter in Mississippi with a spot in the bullpen destined for him.
