Alfredo Aceves will not be disciplined after showing up Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine following his removal from Wednesday's game.

When Valentine came out of the dugout to give Aceves the hook, the righty handed the ball to catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia and stepped off the mound towards third base in order to avoid his manager. Such erratic behavior isn't foreign to Aceves, as he had a confrontation with Bobby V last month and has also gotten into a spat with Dustin Pedroia. Aceves is under team control through 2014, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Sox cut bait this offseason.
