Free agent pitcher Alfredo Aceves and the Boston Red Sox agreed to a one-year contract today. Aceves signed a Major League contract and will earn $650,000 plus incentives. Aceves was awesome for the Bombers during 2009 (10-1 in 43 games), but dealt with balky back issues for basically all of 2010 (3.00 ERA in 10 games). Ace broke his clavicle in a riding accident earlier this off-season, but is expected to be ready for the regular season. He still has two minor league options left and Boston saw some value there.

It’s sad to see him go, which Adam pointed out last June, but he has officially shipped up to Boston.

With the 2010 Major League Baseball season more than halfway over and the most boring sports day of the year upon us, I figured I’d hand out a midterm report card to the New York Yankees.

Through 72 games, the New York Yankees are sporting a record of 45-27 and are first in the AL East, by far and away the best division in baseball. So far, there is little reason to panic. The team is on pace to win 101 games and has scored the second most runs in baseball. The Yankees have done all of this with numerous injuries (Nick Johnson, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson, Marcus Thames, etc, etc.), but one injury not listed is, in my opinion, one of the most consequential so far throughout the year. The injury? Alfredo Aceves and his ailing lower back. Check out the article to see my reasons as to why the Yanks need to get their “Ace” back in the bullpen as soon as possible.

No Game Tonight! Double header tomorrow, 1:05 and 7:05

WFAN’s Sweeny Murti reports that the Yankees expect to put reliever, Alfredo Aceves on the DL. Aceves was removed from Saturday’s contest with an apparently back injury. Aceves is believed to have a bulging disc in his back and is heading back to New York for tests.

Yesterday, the Yankees called up pitcher, Ivan Nova from Triple A. Expect the team to make a move in the next day with Aceves heading to the DL.

A rain delay pushed this game over the five hour Mark, but Teixeira powered the Yankees, clubbing three home runs in a 14-3 victory. However, the injury Gods claimed another victim today….
