According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Alfredo Aceves will be guaranteed $1.2 million if he makes the Orioles.

Aceves could max out at $3 million if he reaches certain incentives. The 31-year-old has struggled in recent seasons and always seems to find himself in the middle of drama, but his ability to start or relieve could come in handy for Baltimore.

Orioles signed RHP Alfredo Aceves to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Aceves appeared in just 11 games with the Red Sox last season and had an ugly 5.36 ERA in 69 relief appearances in 2012, but he has enjoyed some success in the past. While the 31-year-old can be a bit of a headache, he could have value as a swingman.

Marc Carig of Newsday reports that if the Mets signed Alfredo Aceves, it would "probably" be on a minor league deal.

ESPN's Buster Olney reported Thursday that a pact between the two clubs was a "good possibility." With Matt Harvey out for the 2014 season following Tommy John surgery, the Mets could have room in their rotation for Aceves, who has always preferred to start. He's coming off back-to-back disappointing years, though, having posted a 5.21 ERA over 80 appearances for the Red Sox.

ESPN's Buster Olney says there's a "good possibility" free agent Alfredo Aceves signs with the Mets.

Aceves posted an ugly 4.86 ERA in 11 appearances (six starts) this past year for the Red Sox and was at times a headache for manager John Farrell. But he shouldn't cost much for a Mets team that is open to taking chances.
