Chad Cordero to Attempt Comeback with Angels

 They called him The Chief.  Chad Cordero was the first star of the Washington Nationals.  2005, the Nats inaugural season in the Nations' Capitol, saw him lead the National League with 47 saves, buoyed by a 0.969 WHIP.  However, by 2007, arm troubles beset the likable reliever, and by age 28, his career was over.

Nearing his 31 birthday, Cordero, according to Los Angeles Times reporter Mike

has signed a minor league contract with the Angels, General Manager Jerry Dipoto confirmed Wednesday night.  Cordero's deal does NOT include an invitation to major league camp.
DiPoto said that the Upland, California native will report with a mini-camp group this weekend and will pitch in major league exhibition games “when the opportunity presents itself.”

Cordero last appeared in a major league uniform with the 2010 Seattle Mariners.
