Red Sox Place Albers On DL, Call Up Aceves

The Red Sox are set to make their first transaction of the season on Friday, as they will place reliever Matt Albers on the 15-day disabled list with a sore lat muscle behind his shoulder. Albers pitched well over two innings, allowing two walks with three strikeouts.

In Albers’ place, the Red Sox will call up former Yankees pitcher Alfredo Aceves, according a major league source close to Boston.com. It’s no secret that the Sox love Aceves and plan to use him in the starting rotation in the future (perhaps next year?), but for now, he’ll fit in out of the bullpen and in a possible long relief role.

In three years with the Yankees, Aceves was 14-1 with a 3.21 ERA.
