The Toronto Blue Jays have re-signed right-handed pitchers Jeremy Accardo and Jason Frasor.

Accardo singed a new one-year deal with the Jays worth $900,000. He played in only 16 games in 2008, spending much of his time on the disabled list with an injury to his forearm. Accardo is a steal at $900,000 for a man who had 30 saves only one season ago.

Frasor avoided salary arbitration today by signing a one-year, $1.45 million deal with the Jays. He did not have a good season last year as a starter, with one win and two losses.  However, in 49 appearances as a reliever he held the opponents' bats to an average of .208 and only allowed 36 hits over 47 innings of work.

The Blue Jays have also made offers to relievers Brian Tallet and Shawn Camp, and are still waiting to hear back from their respective representation.
