Aceves suspended 50 games for drug of abuse
Jeff Passan on Twitter
Major League Baseball has suspended Alfredo Aceves for 50 games due to a positive test for a drug of abuse.
Forecaster Impact
The exact drug he was taking is unknown. Aceves has been at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre since being designated for assignment by the Yankees on June 4. He had a rough 6.52 ERA in 19 1/3 innings this year for New York and probably won't return to the majors this year.

Alfredo Aceves works in relief
Alfredo Aceves was used in relief Monday and gave up two runs in two-thirds of an inning against the Mets.
Forecaster Impact
Manager Joe Girardi said yesterday that Aceves would likely start Wednesday, but he backed off that before today's game saying he was still available in the pen. And, clearly, Girardi made no effort to avoid using him in relief, considering that he was the first guy in today after Hiroki Kuroda's six innings. It looks like the Yankees will call up someone to start Wednesday.

Daniel Barbarisi on Twitter
Yankees manager Joe Girardi on Sunday listed Alfredo Aceves as the most likely candidate to take CC Sabathia's (knee) spot in the rotation.
Forecaster Impact
Aceves has pitched well in relief since being promoted, allowing just one run over 7 1/3 innings. While his versatility is valuable, he's unlikely to be worthy of a roster spot in fantasy leagues.

Aceves has enjoyed success in the past but holds a 5.21 ERA over the last two seasons in the majors and is known for his surly demeanor.
