The Cleveland Indians have designated right-handed reliever Jeremy Accardo for assignment, opening up a roster spot for the call up of left-handed reliever Chris Seddon, as reported by Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer. The Indians will now have a ten-day window to trade, release, or outright (if possible) the righty to the minors.

In 35 1/3 innings of work (26 appearances), 30-year-old Accardo posted a 4.58 ERA, 7.1 K/9 and 4.1 BB/9. It was one of the more successful stint's of Accardo's career, especially over the past several years.

With the Indians reeling and looking for answers, they'll be hoping Seddon could provide the team with a positive contribution. The 28-year-old will be looking to make his first appearance in the majors since 2010. The southpaw has posted a 3.44 ERA across 123 complete innings of work this season for Class Triple-A Columbus.
