Peter Abraham is reporting that Alfredo Aceves will be starting in Chien-Ming Wang’s place in the Yankee rotation. Aceves has been a huge asset to the Yankee bullpen this season, going 5-1 in 40 innings with a 2.03 ERA, a 0.93 WHIP, and a k:bb ratio of nearly 5:1. In his last outing, Aceves pitched 4 innings of 1-hit ball, striking out 5 and allowing 0 walks.
Truant Officer Donald rip With a dominant 4-inning outing like that, it stands to reason that Aceves should be able to handle throwing 5-6 innings as a starter, and he should be able to fill in capably for the injured Wang. Aceves will be missed in the Yankee bullpen, as his versatility and ability to throw multiple innings is very valuable, but maybe Phil Hughes could occupy that role somewhat (though Girardi seems to have him locked in as more of a 1-inning setup man). It’s unclear how long Aceves will be in the rotation, but hopefully, Wang will come back healthy and effective. I think Aceves is a much better solution than Sergio Mitre, Kei Igawa, or Brett Tomko, who were the possible alternatives.
