Accardo And Orioles Agree At $1.08 Million

BALTIMORE (AP) — Free agent reliever Jeremy Accardo and the Baltimore Orioles have agreed to a one-year contract that pays $1.08 million in the major leagues and $300,000 in the minors.

Accardo, who turns 29 on Saturday, went 3-2 with 24 saves and a 3.48 ERA in 42 games with Triple-A Las Vegas in 2010.

Over seven seasons in the big leagues, Accardo has held left-handed hitters to a .205 average, .292 on-base percentage and .279 slugging percentage.

He set career-highs with 30 saves, four wins and a 2.14 ERA in 2007 for the Toronto Blue Jays.
