OAKLAND (WGGB) — Red Sox reliever-turned-starter Alfredo Aceves has been outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket.
The announcement came Sunday to ESPN, after his last appearance in Seattle, where he pitched just two-thirds of an inning in relief, but did not come out for the fourth. Manager John Farrell did not indicate a reason, but several reports have cited that it was Aceves’ choice not to return.
Whatever the reason, the move means that Aceves is removed from the team’s 40-man roster, after he was placed on waivers and went unclaimed.
Boston recalled two other pitchers, Steven Wright and Pedro Beato, after the move was completed.
Aceves’ ERA was up to 4.86 in six starts and 37 total innings this season, but he boasted a 4-1 record.
