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.

    Tommie: not aroused.

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

      Yeah, now the staff is looking like:

      I bet that’s the best bullpen in baseball.

        Depth: tremendous.

        Alas, though, still not as good as Boston’s bullpen.

          Apparently you only need 2 good pitchers to make a great bullpen. Who knew?

          • tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

            Wait, they have two good pitchers?

            … I got nothing.

        they will carry 12 ps

        Better than what the Rays are going to throw out there?

        if those guys go to a 4 man rotation of Price, Garza, Shields, and Niemann, it’ll likely mean that one of Hellickson and Wade Davis go to the ‘pen. Maybe both perhaps?

        Soriano, Hellickson, Balfour, and Wheeler … damn. That’s frigging awesome.

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

    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.

      Suck it up, kid. Stop being a fairy and pitch, you nancy boy. You look like some cackling little female sitting in the front row, complaining about a broken nail and gabbing about the sale you missed.

        asides from the fact Dibble is a macho idiot. one has to wonder what if Strasburg was diagnosis of having something benign, say, slight inflammation. Would Dibble still be in as much hot water as he is in now?

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

    oh hello Marte, you too?
