Red Sox option Aceves to Triple-A

The Red Sox have optioned right-hander Alfredo Aceves to

Triple-A Pawtucket.

Boston made the move following Wednesday’s 6-5 victory over

Oakland and one day after Aceves had a dismal outing in a 13-0 loss

to the Athletics.

Aceves allowed eight runs, seven earned, and seven hits in 3 1-3

innings. He walked four and committed a pair of balks before he was

pulled.

Aceves also made a throwing error after failing to cover first

in time as the A’s capitalized on Boston’s blunders while the

conditions deteriorated in a steady, blowing rain.

He is 1-1 with an 8.66 ERA in five games. There was no word on a

corresponding roster move.
