Sox sign Aceves

The Red Sox have reportedly signed ex-Yankee righty Alfredo Aceves to a split contract that would pay him $650,000 with possible incentives if he makes the big league roster and $200,000 if he plays in the minors. Aceves, 28, was non-tendered by New York after an injury marred 10 inning, 12 appearance 2010 campaign but is reportedly expected to be ready for spring training. In three seasons with the Yankees Aceves compiled a 14-1 record with a 3.21 ERA in 126 innings over 59 appearances, holding opposing batters to a .221 average. Known primarily as a reliever, Aceves recorded 2 saves in 3 opportunities with the Yanks, Aceves has made 5 career starts and it has been speculated that the Red Sox will employ him in that role rather than out of the bullpen.
