1B,LF - BOS
Red Sox outfielder Franchy Cordero went 1-for-5 against the Mariners on Sunday. His lone hit was a gorgeous walk-off grand slam that propelled Boston to an 8-4 win over Seattle in extra innings.
Cordero has been solid ever since his promotion to the majors at the end of April. Through 18 games, he is slashing .231/.305/.404 with seven RBI, six walks, and 12 strikeouts. He's not on the fantasy radar just yet, but there's no denying that his bat has already been impactful on multiple occasions.
Boston Red Sox 1B Franchy Cordero went 2-for-3 from the plate collecting one run during Tuesday's win over the Angels.
Cordero during his second start at first on Tuesday helped sparked the Red Sox offense that has been struggling. The former Triple-A standout collected two hits in his three appearances but made a tough error at first base on a bad throw from Devers. His defense will be a bit spotty at times not being a natural first baseman but his bat should help offset that. Expect him to continue to start in place of Bobby Dalbec, who is hitting just .147 on the season.
Red Sox left fielder Franchy Cordero collected two hits in three at-bats and scored one run Thursday, as the Red Sox beat the Twins 14-1.
Cordero was at one point highly regarded in the Boston farm system, but could not get it together for the Red Sox and was even put on waivers by the club. The young outfielder will look to build on his productive outing Thursday in an attempt to carve out a role on the Red Sox bench for the 2022 season.
Franchy Cordero cleared waivers and was outrighted to AAA Worcester.
Cordero could have opted to elect free agency, but instead signed a minor-league deal with the Red Sox for 2022. He remains with the organization. Cordero was acquired from Kansas City in the Andrew Benintendi trade last offseason. He hit .189 with one home run across 136 at-bats this past season.
The Red Sox optioned outfielder Franchy Cordero. They added infielder Travis Shaw to their active roster.
Since late July when Cordero returned to the majors, he hit .219 with zero home runs, three runs, and one caught stealing attempt. Cordero's 118.6 mph (100th-percentile) maximum exit velocity looks solid, but he struggles to make contact with a 63.4% Contact%.
