Mets Made Offer to Alfredo Aceves; Chose Red Sox Instead
The deal was reportedly a major-league contract worth $500,000, with an additional $100,000 in incentives.
Unfortunately, Aceves chose to sign with the Red Sox instead.
Aceves appeared in ten games for the Yankees in 2010, and he went 3-0 with a 3.00 ERA in 12 innings before missing the rest of the season due to a buldging disk in his back.
He went 10-1 with a 3.54 ERA in 43 appearances in 2009, and held left handed hitters to a .212 batting average in 151 at-bats.
This would have been a good pickup for the Mets hand would have provided the bullpen with a quality arm and at the very least helped out in the back end.
