Cordero expected in Vegas on Monday

LAS VEGAS -- Reliever Chad Cordero is expected to arrive at the Bellagio Resort on Monday night to talk to some big league clubs, according to a baseball source.

The Mets, Cardinals, Rangers, Tigers and Diamondbacks are five of the clubs Cordero plans to talk to. The Nationals, the team Cordero played for the last six years, are no longer in the mix.

According to the source, Cordero and his agent, Larry Reynolds, are planning to meet with Mets general manager Omar Minaya on Wednesday. The source didn't know when the other meetings were scheduled.

Cordero and Reynolds were not available for comment.

Cordero, 26, is considered one of the best closers in Nationals/Expos history, saving 128 games and compiling a 2.78 ERA during his career. His best season was in 2005, when he saved 47 games to go with a 1.82 ERA.
