Aceves scratched from tonight’s rehab appearance


Update (7:50pm): Yep, he’s back in New York to see the doc about his back. Not good.

6:19pm: Via Mike Ashmore, Al Aceves has been scratched form his rehab outing with Double-A Trenton tonight and has instead returned to New York. It’s possible that he’s going to have his back re-examined, which is what’s had him on the shelf basically all season. Aceves’ rehab schedule hasn’t been going very well – 11.2 IP, 14 H, 9 R, 8 ER, 6 BB, 11 K with various minor league affiliates – so this news isn’t terribly surprising. Like I’ve been saying, whatever the Yanks get out of Aceves this season is a bonus, and it’s entirely possible he contributes nothing the rest of the way.

  1. Tommie: not aroused.

    Luckily, we probably don’t need him and wouldn’t have room for him anyway.

  2. vin says:

    He must’ve been hanging around with Nick Johnson these last 4 months.

  3. nathan says:

    At this point, if he has to have surgery he should or else pack up and take a 3-4 month breather and come back fresh for next season.

    good luck Aces. heads up your 88 percent favorite against an underpair preflop… take it down next year.

    oh hello Marte, you too?
