Aceves spent the last three years with Boston after pitching for three seasons with the New York Yankees.
Analysis: The 31-year-old Aceves has a lifetime record of 30-14 with a 3.69 ERA and 29 saves - all but four of them in 2012. Aceves bounced between the Red Sox and Triple-A Pawtucket last season. He was 4-1 in 11 games with Boston and 4-2 in eight starts with Pawtucket. In August 2012, the Red Sox suspended Aceves for three games for conduct detrimental to the team following an argument with then-manager Bobby Valentine.

He hurt fantasy owners with a fielding error.
Analysis: Aceves was sent to the minors after allowing seven runs in an April 23 start against Oakland that ballooned his ERA to 8.66. But he was sent back to the mound on Monday because Clay Buchholz had irritation in his shoulder and collar bone from sleeping awkwardly on his side.

Analysis: He took the spot of John Lackey, placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday after straining his right biceps in his previous start.
|Mar. 16 3:54 PM PT4:54 PM MT5:54 PM CT6:54 PM ET18:54 ET22:54 GMT6:54 CST3:54 PM MST5:54 PM EST6:24 PM VEN2:54 UAE (+1)4:54 PM CT-Aceves hit Tampa Bay's Sean Rodriguez with a pitch and the two had a heated exchange that nearly escalated into a fight in the fifth inning of the Boston Red Sox's 9-2 victory over the Rays on Saturday.
Analysis: Aceves also was part of a Mexico-Canada melee in the World Baseball Classic. He may need anger management classes. Aceves gave up six hits and two runs in 4 1-3 innings so it's not like his pitching is any good either.
