He's a little like Daniel Renken in that respect, but has handled Bakersfield better. He's also a year-plus older than Renken.
If I had to chose whether I wanted Cordero as closer next year for $5 million or Boxberger for the major league minimum and was not given any other choices, I would definitely pick Boxberger at this time considering the Reds' budget constraints.
