The thirty-three year old is the true definition of a journeyman.

In 2013, he played in the Mexican Winter League, the Venezuelan Winter League, and the Syracuse Chiefs the International League Triple A affiliate of the Nationals.

Last season he appeared in twenty-three games with the Bridgeport Blue Fish, of the Independent League. Accardo appeared in 60 games across 61.1 innings with a 4.40 era, and a 2.11 SO/BB ratio.

This move is simply to add bullpen depth in the minors. Accardo is a native of Phoenix, Arizona.
