Anyone who thought that Alfredo Aceves might harbor some ill will toward the Red Sox is dead wrong. Aceves made it clear prior to Friday’s PawSox game that he wants to remain with the Red Sox organization for the foreseeable future despite being taken off Boston’s 40-man roster on July 14. “I’ve talked to the Red Sox and I said, ‘If you want to do a deal for 10 years, I will do a deal for 10 years.’ I don’t want to go anywhere,” Aceves said, according to WEEI.com. Well then. It remains to be seen whether or not Aceves will find his way back onto the Red Sox’ 40-man roster and eventually rejoin the major league club, but it’s obvious that he isn’t too bent out of shape about bouncing back and forth between Boston and Pawtucket this season. “I’ve had this body since I was 15 years old and I can keep this body until I’m 45 years old,” Aceves reportedly said. “I want to play here. I want to play more years with this team.” Aceves has been on the seven-day disabled list because of an oblique injury he suffered in Seattle on July 9. The right-hander noted that he feels great, however, and his focus is on stepping up his game. “It’s been six years and I’ve been hurt twice. That’s not bad,” said Aceves, who has played in parts of six seasons. “I’m looking forward to playing this year. We’re in a good position right now. I feel great.” Aceves is 4-1 with a 4.86 ERA in 11 appearances (six starts) with Boston this season. Have a question for Ricky Doyle? Send it to him via Twitter at @TheRickyDoyle or send it here.
