Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said he plans on stretching Alfredo Aceves out over the final month of the season.

In other words, you can forget about him closing games, at least not on a regular basis. Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe notes that the move is "not necessarily" being made in order to get Aceves ready to start a game sometime next month. Andrew Bailey is set to be the Red Sox' closer in September.
