Albers and Reyes win last two spots in Boston, Okajima and Aceves optioned to Pawtucket

The long-awaited resolution of the Red Sox bullpen competition was announced this morning, as Hideki Okajima and Alfredo Aceves were optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Matt Albers and Dennys Reyes were added to the team's 25-man roster.

The decision to option Okajima and Aceves was based on the fact that both pitchers have minor league options remaining while Reyes and Albers do not, according to General Manager Theo Epstein.

This is how the four pitchers have fared so far this spring:

Aceves : 0-1, 4.05 ERA in 13.1 innings pitched

Okajima: 5.14 ERA, 8 strikeouts in 7.0 innings pitched

Albers: 2.84 ERA, 1 save, 13 strikeouts in 12.2 innings pitched

Reyes: 1-1, 2.70 ERA, 8 strikeouts in 10.0 innings pitched.

Aceves will be used as a starter in Pawtucket while Okajima will be a member of the bullpen.
