FORT MYERS, Fla. — Francisco Cordero, a three-time All-Star attempting a comeback at the age of 38, has signed a minor league contract with the Red Sox and was invited to spring training.
Cordero is expected to arrive Monday for a physical.
The righthander has not pitched in the major leagues since 2012, when he was with Toronto and Houston and compiled a lofty 7.55 earned run average in 47 appearances. Cordero allowed 61 hits and 18 walks over 39⅓ innings that season.
Sox manager John Farrell was with the Blue Jays at the time.
“This is a guy that’s got a lot of experience back end [of the bullpen]. Have personal familiarity with him when he was in Toronto,” Farrell said.
