  • Franchy Cordero: Headed to Japan

    Cordero signed a contract Thursday with the Seibu Lions in Japan.

    The news was reported by Cordero's agency (Republik Sports) on Instagram. The 29-year-old outfielder never quite got it going at the MLB level, but he's always torn it up in the minors and his offensive profile could wind up translating well to Nippon Professional Baseball. Cordero leaves behind a career .678 major-league OPS.

  • Franchy Cordero: Becomes free agent

    Cordero elected to become a free agent Monday.

    He'll head to free agency rather than accept the Yankees' outright assignment. Cordero has often teased at the major-league level with his raw skills but ultimately has just a .678 OPS over parts of seven seasons.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Outrighted to Triple-A

    The Yankees sent Cordero outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Cordero posted a .689 OPS through 71 plate appearances with the Yankees in 2023, though most of his time was spent in Triple-A, where he slashed .288/.403/.476 with 13 homers and 61 RBI. He'll have the option to elect free agency and would likely be able to attract a minor-league deal elsewhere.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Sent back to minors

    The Yankees optioned Cordero to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

    Cordero lost his spot on the 26-man active roster after the Yankees reinstated another left-handed-hitting outfielder in Jake Bauers (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Bauers will start in right field and bat leadoff in Sunday's game against the Royals and should serve as a strong-side platoon option at the position until the Yankees get Aaron Judge (toe) back from the IL. Prior to his demotion, Cordero had started in each of the Yankees' last three games, going 4-for-11 with a pair of solo home runs, a double and an additional run.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Contributes homer in loss

    Cordero went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and two total runs scored in a loss to the Angels on Monday.

    The Yankees watched Los Angeles jump out to a big lead early, but Cordero at least gave his team some life with his solo shot in the eighth inning that narrowed the deficit to three runs. The outfielder finished with three hits overall, more than he had tallied over his previous 33 at-bats combined. Cordero homered four times in his first seven games as a Yankee, but Wednesday's long ball was his first since that span. He's spent most of his time in the minors since finishing April in a 1-for-28 swoon.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Recalled from Triple-A

    Cordero was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    He's presumably taking the roster spot soon to be vacated by Jake Bauers (shoulder), who is headed to the injured list. Cordero has batted only .148/.179/.389 over 56 plate appearances with the Yanks this season.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Placed on 7-day IL

    Cordero was placed on the 7-day injured list by Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday with an undisclosed injury, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

    Cordero will sit for a week while recovering from the undisclosed injury. The outfielder has had a pair of stints with the Yankees in 2023, but he's struggled to a slash of .148/.179/.389 over 56 plate appearances in those opportunities.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Sent back to Triple-A

    The Yankees optioned Cordero to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday.

    Cordero struck out in his lone at-bat during this latest brief stint on the Yankees' major-league roster. He had a strong one-week run of power production in April but is batting just .148/.179/.389 across 56 total plate appearances this season in the big leagues.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Recalled from Triple-A

    Cordero was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

    Cordero is taking the place of Harrison Bader on the 26-man active roster after Bader was placed on the injured list with a hamstring strain. Cordero could see starts in the outfield over the coming weeks, but he is more likely to be a bench option while with the club at this point.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Heads back to Triple-A

    The Yankees optioned Cordero to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday.

    He had just been recalled Monday when Aaron Judge (hip) went on the injured list but is headed right back to SWB following Harrison Bader's (oblique) return. Cordero has four homers but a .578 OPS and 20:2 K:BB in 18 games this season.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Recalled from Triple-A

    Cordero was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre by the Yankees on Monday.

    Cordero was just optioned this past Friday but is back now to replace the injured Aaron Judge (hip). He had been slumping badly before the demotion but could see some starts versus righties with the Yankees' outfield depth being tested.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Optioned to Triple-A

    Cordero was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre by the Yankees on Friday.

    Cordero started off on fire for the Yankees after signing with the team just before the season, but the outfielder hasn't picked up a hit since April 14 and saw his average fall to .151 with another hitless affair against the Rangers on Friday. The Yankees will announce a corresponding move before Saturday's game versus Texas.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Sitting again Thursday

    Cordero is not in the lineup Thursday versus the Rangers.

    Cordero did not start Wednesday with a right-hander on the mound for the Twins and he's sitting again Thursday with left-hander Andrew Heaney toeing the slab for Texas. The 28-year-old flourished over his first two weeks with the Yankees, but he is 0-for-18 with seven strikeouts and zero walks over his last eight games.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Sitting versus right-hander

    Cordero is not in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the Twins, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Cordero will get a breather as the Yankees face right-hander Kenta Maeda on the mound. Left-handed batter Willie Calhoun will draw the start in right field and bat sixth as New York looks to avoid the sweep against Minnesota.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Out against right-hander

    Cordero is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

    He'll be on the bench for the third time in four games, but unlike his prior two absences, the Yankees are opposing a right-handed starting pitcher (Kevin Gausman) on Sunday. The lefty-hitting Cordero's hold on a strong-side platoon role looks as though it may be loosening while he's fallen into a 1-for-18 rut at the dish over his last seven games.

  • Yankees' Franchy Cordero: Should play frequently vs. RHPs

    Cordero will start in right field and bat ninth Wednesday versus the Angels, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    Cordero was on the bench for both of the Yankees' past two games, but so long as at least two of Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring), Harrison Bader (oblique) and Josh Donaldson (hamstring) are on the injured list, the 28-year-old should have a fairly clear path to playing regularly versus right-handed pitching. Through 39 plate appearances this season, Cordero owns a robust .824 OPS, but a 30.8 percent strikeout rate has kept his batting average down at .216.
