Alfredo Aceves yielded two runs in 4 1/3 innings Saturday in a victory over the Rays.
Back from the World Baseball Classic, Aceves drew a start today. He wasn't involved in any brawls this time around, though he nearly sparked one by plunking Sean Rodriguez and exchanging words with him down the first base line. One wonders just how much more patience the Red Sox are going to show with the right-hander. If someone is interested in taking him off their hands, they probably wouldn't ask for much in return.
