The San Francisco Giants have reached an agreement with right-handed pitcher Alfredo Aceves to a minor-league deal, according to a transactions’ report by Matt Eddy of Baseball America. Aceves’ deal with the Giants likely includes an invitation to big league spring training.
The 32-year-old right-hander pitched for the New York Yankees‘ organization during the 2014 campaign, splitting time between their major-league squad and their Triple-A affiliate at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
In ten appearances in the majors last season with the Yankees, Aceves pitched to a 1-2 record, along with a 6.52 ERA, 60 ERA+ and a 6.29 FIP, in 19 and 1/3 innings pitched. At Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, he had a 0-1 record, along with a 3.49 ERA, in 28 and 1/3 innings pitched over seven games (five starts).
Over his seven-year major-league career, Aceves has pitched for the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, compiling a 31-16 record, along with a 3.83 ERA, in 380 and 1/3 innings pitched over 204 games (15 starts).
The guy is a head case. But, he does have a rubber arm.
