Yankees designate Alfredo Aceves for assignment

15 Comments

Alfredo Aceves’ second stint with the Yankees was a short one, as the veteran right-hander has been designated for assignment after throwing 19 innings for New York.

Aceves posted a 6.52 ERA with six homers allowed to earn the demotion, although his 16/4 K/BB ratio was very good. He’s still just 31 years old, but Aceves has a 5.39 ERA in 140 innings dating back to 2012 and his reputation as a semi-crazy person probably won’t help him keep another gig.
