Accardo becomes free agent

In case you were wondering or thought I forgot, reliever Jeremy Accardo refused his outright assignment to Triple-A Norfolk last week and elected to become a free agent.

Add him to your list of available relievers.

Accardo went 3-3 with a 5.73 ERA in 31 appearances with the Orioles. He allowed 43 hits, walked 18 and hit a batter in 37 2/3 innings. His WHIP was 1.619.

Yes, that's too many baserunners.

Accardo was 1-1 with a 2.16 ERA in 26 games at Norfolk.

The Orioles also outrighted Accardo earlier this summer, so he had the right to refuse his latest assignment.

The 40-man roster stands at 39 after Accardo's removal.

OK, proceed with the rest of your morning.
