White Sox Interested In Jeremy Accardo

By Editorial Staff

Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports has reported that the White Sox are interested in former Toronto Blue Jays closer Jeremy Accardo.

Accardo had a very good 2007 season with the Blue Jays where he saved 30 games and had a 2.14 ERA. Since then he has been switching between the majors and minors, mostly staying in the minors. He spent most of last season with Triple-A Las Vegas posting a 3.48 ERA during his time there.

This looks like another option the White Sox are looking at to fill their open closer position because I still believe that the White Sox do not want to put Matt Thornton in that role and lose a premier left-handed set-up man.

The Los Angeles Dodgers, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Tampa Bay Rays are all interested in Accardo as well.
