A Diamond in the Rough

The Yanks signed Alfredo Aceves out of the Mexican League as a 24 year old coming off of an 11-5, 3.64 season in which he allowed 96 hits in 106 innings.

So far this year between A Tampa and AA Trenton, Aceves is 6-3 with a 1.95 ERA. He has allowed only 69 hits in 97 innings while allowing a .201 batting average against.

According to PeteAbe -

Brian Cashman and his people can’t stop talking about him...Aceves could in the big league rotation after the break.

As Darrell Rasner seems to be coming down to earth a little, and Dan Geise is a major question mark, an Aceves sighting after the break may be realistic.
