Marlins purchased the contract of RHP Erik Cordier from Triple-A New Orleans.

Cordier has registered a 1.26 ERA and 57/27 K/BB ratio in 43 innings this season at the Triple-A level. The 29-year-old right-hander will pitch in middle relief.
Aug 17 - 2:43 PM

Marlins signed RHP Erik Cordier to a minor league contract.

Cordier was released by the Giants on August 1. He's posted some strong numbers in the minors this season, pitching to a 0.90 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 53/26 K/BB ratio across 40 total innings between Double-A and Triple-A. The Giants only released him because he held an opt-out clause in his contract and they couldn't find a place for him in the major league pen. He should see time with the Marlins in the future, especially given the strong numbers.

Giants released RHP Erik Cordier.

Cordier had an August 1 opt-out clause in his contract. He's pitched well for Triple-A Sacramento this year (1.04 ERA in 31 games) but the Giants haven't been able to find room for him in their bullpen.

Erik Cordier has elected free agency.

Cordier cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Giants, but he has opted to explore the open market rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Sacramento.

May 27 - 1:57 PM

Giants activated RHP Erik Cordier from the 15-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

Cordier is over his forearm injury, but the Giants decided they had a better use for a 40-man roster spot. The 29-year-old has control issues but had touch the upper-90s with his fastball, so there could be some interest in him on waivers.
May 17 - 1:19 PM

Erik Cordier (forearm) will make a minor league rehab start with Triple-A San Jose on Thursday.

Cordier is battling back from a strained right forearm that has sidelined him for the past few weeks. He should only need a couple of minor league appearances before becoming an option for the Giants bullpen.
Apr 16 - 6:18 PM

Erik Cordier (forearm) has resumed throwing off a mound.

He'll be cleared to face hitters soon. Cordier first dealt with his forearm issue a few weeks ago, but he feels like he's turned the corner and shouldn't be out much longer.
Apr 6 - 7:14 PM

Giants placed RHP Erik Cordier on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 27, with a right forearm strain.

Cordier has reported improvement in recent days and hopes to resume throwing soon. He's expected to function in a middle relief role with the Giants once he's able to return, which should be in mid-April.
Apr 5 - 4:17 PM

Erik Cordier is currently sidelined with a grade two forearm strain.

Cordier noted that he has been improving with treatment in recent days and hopes to resume throwing soon. The 29-year-old hurler is competing for a middle relief job in the Giants bullpen this spring.

This is the first call-up to the big leagues for Cordier. The 28-year-old had a 3.59 ERA and 68/31 K/BB ratio over 52 2/3 innings this season in Triple-A. Control is an issue for him, but he has a big arm and misses bats.
