Two Yankee aces get lit up in one day

CC Sabathia, the ace of the rotation, got shelled against a Triple-A team, and Alfredo Aceves, “Ace,” allowed five earned runs against the Orioles.

Both pitchers were highly dependable last year and are seen as saviors when they’re on the mound. It’s pretty unexpected for both to get roughed up against two awful teams on the same day.

Aceves figures to find a spot in the bullpen with the latest Hughes news, and I believe he should.

Aceves has helped the Yankees too much the last two seasons for Girardi not to bring him back. No matter the spring stats, Aceves should be the versatile reliever the Yankees loved last year once again.

Oh, and Sabathia is still the real ace.
