Red Sox sign Aceves to Major League deal

According to Pete Abraham and Nick Cafardo, the Red Sox have signed former Yankees reliever Alfredo Aceves to a Major League deal. The signing came after Aceves worked out for the Red Sox on Monday.

Aceves was non-tendered this winter after a lingering lower-back injury cost him most of the 2010 season. He then broke his left clavicle this winter, an injury that required surgery.

When the Yankees non-tendered Aceves, they let him know they’d like to bring him back on a minor league deal.

Not positive, but I believe Aceves should have at least one option remaining, meaning the Red Sox won’t have to carry him on the big league roster out of spring training.

* Sorry, accidentally wrote “minor league deal” in the original post. Fixed it.
