Alfredo Aceves P NYY 19 Days

Aceves (suspension) was reinstated from the restricted list and released from his contract with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports.

Aceves completed a 50-game suspension for a second positive drug test, and with the Triple-A season almost over, the team decided it was in their best interest to part ways with the right-hander. He'll attempt to land another minor league contract with a spring training invite during the offseason.

The exact drug he was taking is unknown. Aceves has been at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre since being designated for assignment by the Yankees on June 4. He had a rough 6.52 ERA in 19 1/3 innings this year for New York and probably won't return to the majors this year.

Alfredo Aceves was used in relief Monday and gave up two runs in two-thirds of an inning against the Mets.

Manager Joe Girardi said yesterday that Aceves would likely start Wednesday, but he backed off that before today's game saying he was still available in the pen. And, clearly, Girardi made no effort to avoid using him in relief, considering that he was the first guy in today after Hiroki Kuroda's six innings. It looks like the Yankees will call up someone to start Wednesday.
