Indians Sign Reliever Jeremy Accardo To Minor League Deal

The Cleveland Indians continued their busy week on Thursday, signing reliever Jeremy Accardo to a minor league deal, according to Jerry Crasnick on Twitter:

Reliever Jeremy Accardo has agreed to a minor-leagud deal with #Indians. The #Phillies had also expressed interest.

Accardo is 30 years-old and is entering his eighth season with the league. He spent most of his career with the Toronto Blue Jays, but spent last season with the Baltimore Orioles. In 2011, he went 3-3 with a 5.73 earned-run average in 31 appearances, so his numbers aren't great. He did strike out 23 batters against 18 walks, so he has that going for him.

Still, he's got a career 4.22 ERA and the Indians are still looking to fill a spot on their bullpen. Could Accardo be in the mix on this? It's certainly a possibility. His best season came in 2007, when he had a 2.14 ERA in 64 games, with 30 saves to his credit.
