Will the New York Mets land Alfredo Aceves?

At the beginning of the season, the Boston Red Sox sent right handed pitcher Alfredo Aceves to Triple-A Pawtucket after just three starts and a total of five appearances.

He was later recalled on July 7th after Andrew Miller went down to a season ending foot injury. He only spent a couple days with the Major League team before he was optioned to Triple-A once again and later removed from the 40-man roster.

Aceves decided to elect free agency at the beginning of October while his now former team was making a run in the post-season. I believe he will still receive a World Series ring.

Now that he’s a free agent, he’s been getting some attention from a couple teams in the league. Right now it looks like the New York Mets are showing the most interest in him according to Buster Olney.

After a disappointing 2013 season, he shouldn’t cost that much if the Mets do in fact decide to sign him.
