Red Sox Interested In Former Yankee, Aceves
The Red Sox have shown interest in free agent reliever, Alfredo Aceves. Aceves has played for the Yankees the past three seasons before getting non-tendered last season after a back injury. Aceves was limited to 10 games last year, going 3-0/3.00/2. However, Aceves had a fantastic season in 2009, going 10-1/3.54/69 in 43 games, as a big part of that '09 championship team for the Yankees. Also, in those 43 games, he threw 84 innings, meaning he can throw about two innings out of the bullpen if he has to. This would be a good move that could help the Red Sox a lot, in the very least, for depth, however, I don't really see it happening.
