Athletics Sign P Jeremy Accardo, Optioned To Triple-A Sacramento

As the news that Dallas Braden will have to push back his return deadline even further on Wednesday, the Oakland Athletics are looking to add another arm for insurance. Thusly, the San Francisco Chronicles' Susan Slusser is reporting that the Oakland Athletics have signed right-handed pitcher Jeremy Accardo and optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

The 30-year old Accardo was designated for assignment by the Cleveland Indians on August 4th and eventually released on August 9th. He made 26 appearances for Cleveland this season, owning a 4.58 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP with 7.1 K/9 ratio and 4.1 BB/9 ratio. Accardo owns a 4.27 lifetime ERA with 6.5 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9.

Accardo has been in and out of the majors since 2005, seeing time with the Giants, Blue Jays, Orioles and Indians.
