After last night’s heartbreaking marathon loss to Tampa, the Yankees were almost certainly going to have a make a roster move to reload the bullpen. This morning Alfredo Aceves has been activated to the 25/40-man roster and called up from Scranton. The rough outing in the 14th inning, the Yankees have designated Chris Leroux for assignment. Aceves made his big league debut with the Yankees back in 2008, but after suffering a back injury in 2010, he was released by the team. The Red Sox signed Aceves in 2011 and was used both as a starter and reliever during his time in Boston. Yankees signed Aceves to a minor league deal in March after he opted out of his contact with Baltimore towards the end of spring training. Since being activated to Scranton, Aceves has made two starts for the RailRiders, has a 1,98 ERA 14K over 13.2 innings pitched. Aceves, the 14th reliever used this season, will slot in as the Yankees long man for now.
