News: Aceves signed a minor-league contract with the Giants earlier this week, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.
Impact: The deal presumably includes an invitation to big-league spring training for Aceves, who split time between the Yankees and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last season. The right-hander's ability to swing between both starting and relief duties remains his most attractive attribute, as he certainly wouldn't warrant a look based on his numbers alone. He struggled mightily over his 19.1 innings with the Yankees in 2014, posting a 6.52 ERA while surrendering six homers.
