Orioles released RHP Alfredo Aceves.

Aceves exercised his opt-out clause when he learned that he lost out to Evan Meek for the final spot in the Orioles' bullpen. He'll look to catch on elsewhere but is not guaranteed to land a major league deal.
Mar 27 - 8:56 PM

Alfredo Aceves is expected to return to Orioles' camp on Thursday.

Aceves, a non-roster invitee this spring, recently left the team to return home to Mexico to obtain a work visa. He should return to workouts Saturday.

Alfredo Aceves has a March 28 out clause with the Orioles.

In other words, he has to make the Opening Day roster or he can become a free agent. Aceves signed a minor league contract with Baltimore earlier this week that carries a potential $1.2 million major league salary.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Alfredo Aceves will be guaranteed $1.2 million if he makes the Orioles.

Aceves could max out at $3 million if he reaches certain incentives. The 31-year-old has struggled in recent seasons and always seems to find himself in the middle of drama, but his ability to start or relieve could come in handy for Baltimore.

Orioles signed RHP Alfredo Aceves to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Aceves appeared in just 11 games with the Red Sox last season and had an ugly 5.36 ERA in 69 relief appearances in 2012, but he has enjoyed some success in the past. While the 31-year-old can be a bit of a headache, he could have value as a swingman.
Jan 15 - 3:19 PM

Marc Carig of Newsday reports that if the Mets signed Alfredo Aceves, it would "probably" be on a minor league deal.

ESPN's Buster Olney reported Thursday that a pact between the two clubs was a "good possibility." With Matt Harvey out for the 2014 season following Tommy John surgery, the Mets could have room in their rotation for Aceves, who has always preferred to start. He's coming off back-to-back disappointing years, though, having posted a 5.21 ERA over 80 appearances for the Red Sox.

ESPN's Buster Olney says there's a "good possibility" free agent Alfredo Aceves signs with the Mets.

Aceves posted an ugly 4.86 ERA in 11 appearances (six starts) this past year for the Red Sox and was at times a headache for Boston manager John Farrell. But he shouldn't cost much for a Mets team that is open to taking chances on any potential roster upgrades. Aceves, 30, posted a 2.61 ERA across 114 innings back in 2011.

The Mets are one of the teams interested in free agent right-hander Alfredo Aceves, reports Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.

Aceves, who turns 31 in December, posted a 4.86 ERA in 11 appearances (six starts) with the Red Sox this season. His antics figure to limit the number of suitors, but he has enjoyed some success in the past.

Alfredo Aceves has elected free agency.

Aceves posted a 4.86 ERA across 37 innings for the Red Sox this season. He's often a headache but has shown enough ability in the past to get another shot somewhere.

Alfredo Aceves (oblique) threw a shutout frame in a Gulf Coast League game on Monday afternoon.

It was his first live action since July 9. Aceves was outrighted off Boston's 40-man roster earlier this summer and is now trying to make his way back from a severe oblique strain. He will report to Triple-A Pawtucket when he's back to full health.

Alfredo Aceves (oblique) hopes to pitch again during the 2013 season.

Aceves was placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday with a strained oblique. He'll get checked out again by team doctors on Sunday before determining a course of action. He's expected to work out of the bullpen if he does make it back.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Thursday that Alfredo Aceves will pitch out of the bullpen with Triple-A Pawtucket moving forward.

Aceves, who has a 4.86 ERA over 11 appearances (six starts) with the Red Sox this season, was outrighted to Triple-A over the weekend. He'll need to be added back to the 40-man roster in order to get another call-up.

Red Sox sent RHP Alfredo Aceves outright to Triple-A Pawtucket.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster. Aceves, who has a 4.86 ERA in 11 appearances (six starts) with the Red Sox, told that he could miss the rest of the season due to an oblique injury.
