|Francisco Cordero endured the worst campaign of his career last season and could be done as a reliable source of saves in Fantasy. After signing a one-year deal with the Blue Jays before the 2012 season, he could not hold on to the closer's role and posted a 5.77 ERA in 41 appearances. The right-hander was then traded to the Astros in mid-July and made just six appearances with Houston due to a toe injury. Cordero ended up converting 2 of 8 save chances for the season and posted a career-high 7.55 ERA in 47 appearances. He was released by the Astros in September and has not garnered a ton of interest on the free-agent market. Cordero averaged nearly 39 saves with a 2.97 ERA from 2007-11, but at age 37 his run in Fantasy could be coming to an end. Since the three-time All-Star is not expected to land a closing job, plan on ignoring him in the majority of Fantasy formats on Draft Day. (Updated 1/10/13)|
