On the disabled list with a bulging disc in his back for two weeks now, Al Aceves suffered a bit of a setback today when he felt more pain while working out in Tampa. He cut his work on the field short, and he’s heading back to New York for what I presume is more tests and what not. Aceves felt better after receiving a cortisone shot last week, but apparently it didn’t do enough. The more time he misses and the more setbacks he has, the more likely surgery becomes. Simply as that.
