After two good innings last night in Trenton, Alfredo Aceves told Mike Ashmore that he expects to make at least one more rehab outing before he’s ready to rejoin the big league bullpen.
“I’m probably going to stay for six days; five (or) six days here in Trenton,” Aceves said. “Probably having another start here, maybe two, I don’t know. I don’t have that decision in my hands.”
Two hitless innings on 26 pitches is pretty good, and he seems to have impressed Austin Romine and Tony Franklin, but with the Yankees bullpen pitching so well lately, there’s absolutely no need to rush Aceves.
Don’t forget, Aceves was moved to the 60-day when the Yankees added three players at the trade deadline. The team will have to make a 40-man move when he comes back. Probably not a huge issue, but something to keep in mind.
