I felt that Kendrick gave me enough 2B depth to be able to shop Phillips around, and you have to admit that he might be worth a bit more than Accardo. Plus Kendrick provides a speed option not typically available at 1B.
Accardo will start to give up a few runs eventually, but he's still likely going to remain the team's closer for the rest of the year. That designation alone gives him a lot of value by itself. But then there's the fact that he also gets a lot of Ks, and up to this point, his WHIP has been outstanding. I expect good ratios from him the rest of the season with atleast 20-25 saves if he remains the closer for the Jays, which he should, because there's nobody even close to being better than him (talent-wise, or performance wise). IMO, Kendrick isn't worth Accardo, especially in your case, when you already have two other second basemen.
