Red Sox activate Franklin Morales, send Alfredo Aceves back to minors

Franklin Morales is back from the disabled list after being out since the end of spring training with a strained pectoral muscle and to make room for him on the roster the Red Sox demoted Alfredo Aceves to Triple-A.

Aceves tossed six innings of one-run ball against the Phillies in a spot start last night and no doubt reacted to the demotion with class and civility. And as was the case last month, Aceves will accept the assignment to the minors because he wants to keep getting paid.

Morales has a 3.73 ERA and 107/41 K/BB ratio in 109 innings for the Red Sox since coming over from the Rockies in May of 2011.

    Aceves’ last start was more than I ever expected the Sawks to get out this mental midget. Absolutely playing with house money at this point.

        The guy basically talked his way into “organizational depth” status.

    Glad to see the Sox were not counting on Aceves to produce for anything more than one start. He would only disappoint if given additional opportunities.

    Sell high on Aceves!

    Clearly he can pitch well in the NL (I’m counting it as an official NL game since Delmon Young DHed and he’s basically a pitcher).

    I used to like Aceves, he has talent, to bad he is an A Hole
