Giants sign right-hander Alfredo Aceves

According to Matt Eddy of Baseball America, the Giants have signed veteran right-hander Alfredo Aceves to a minor league contract.

Aceves is a noteworthy name in that he has enjoyed success in the past and has a history of erratic behavior. However, hasn’t been an effective pitcher for a couple of years now. He owns a 5.39 ERA at the major league level dating back to 2012. The 32-year-old had a brief stint with the Yankees last season and was also handed a 50-game suspension in the minors after a second positive test for marijuana.

Aceves is unlikely to crack the Giants’ Opening Day bullpen, so he’s likely ticketed for Triple-A Sacramento.
