Alfredo Aceves signs with Boston

For those of you who missed it (read: nobody) Alfredo Aceves signed a deal with the Red Sox yesterday. Released by the Yankees earlier in the offseason, Aceves' 2010 season was plagued by multiple back injuries.

He made three starts and four total appearances with the Thunder last season, and pitched in three more games (two starts) with Scranton before eventually being shut down for good when he just wouldn't heal.

He was 3-0 with an ERA of an even 3.00 over 12 games with the big club.

Aceves, one of the Yankees' first success stories in their recent dip into the Mexican talent pool, made his initial impact with the Thunder in 2008. He threw the team's only complete-game shutout that year, and its most recent before Hector Noesi turned the trick this season.

His most memorable moment that season, however, was proposing to his then-girlfriend in the stands before a game. Of course, my back was turned at the moment, so I missed it. I'm told it was quite touching.

In any case, here's hoping for the best of luck for Aceves in Boston.
