Alfredo Aceves is back in the Yankees organization for a second time. Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports that the Yankees have signed the right-hander to a minor league deal. Davidoff adds that Aceves will slide into the starting rotation at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. His contract includes an opt-out date on July 1.
Aceves made his big league debut with the Yankees in 2008 and remained with the organization through 2010. He suffered a back injury and the Yankees did not keep him around. As a result, Aceves signed with the rival Red Sox in February 2011. He signed a minor league deal with the Orioles in January, but exercised the opt-out clause in his contract on Thursday. Overall, in 361 Major League innings, Aceves has a career 3.69 ERA with mediocre strikeout and walk rates.
