Just 18 years old, Cordero stands 5-foot-10 and weighs 174 pounds. He'll grow into his medium frame more, but he already has a lot of defensive tools, including plus arm strength. Aside from manning shortstop, Cordero also played some outfield at the academy, where his speed and strong arm were put to good use.
At the plate, he is more of a contact hitter, but he showed line-drive power with his quick bat speed.
