Blue Jays: How the prospects from the 2015 trade deadline have fared
To the Blue Jays: OF Ben Revere
To the Phillies: RHP Jimmy Cordero and RHP Alberto Tirado
RHP Jimmy Cordero
An international free agent signing back in 2012, pitcher Jimmy Cordero was with AA New Hampshire when he was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies. He would spend the 2016 season in the Phillies minor league system before being DFA’d in the 2016/2017 offseason and would be traded to the Washington Nationals a few days later.
Cordero would make his major league debut in 2018 for the Nationals and would bounce around to a few different organizations over the next few seasons, even pitching for the Blue Jays for one appearance in 2019. After a brief stop with the Mariners, the righty landed with the Chicago White Sox and pitched for the club in both 2019 and 2020. For his Major League career, the Dominican product has produced a 4.55 ERA through 83 relief appearances with 65 strikeouts through 83.0 innings of work.
Cordero underwent Tommy John surgery prior to the 2021 season and did not appear in a game this year, most likely not making an appearance until sometime midway through the 2022 campaign if all goes well with his recovery.
RHP – Alberto Tirado
Right-hander Alberto Tirado first appeared for the Blue Jays in 2012 and would spend the next few seasons in the lower levels of the organization’s farm system.
Even after the trade to Philadelphia, Tirado made it as high as AA but elected free agency at the end of the 2018 season and has not played professional baseball since.
