BOSTON -- Red Sox pitcher Alfredo Aceves, who had a dismal start in a 13-0 loss to the Oakland A’s on Tuesday, was optioned to Triple A Pawtucket on Wednesday.

Aceves was sent down following a meeting with manager John Farrell, pitching coach Juan Nieves and general manager Ben Cherington in Farrell’s office after Boston’s 6-5 win over Oakland at Fenway Park. The team said a corresponding roster move will be made on Thursday.

Aceves had made three starts while John Lackey has been on the disabled list with a strained right biceps. Lackey is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday, and if all goes well, he will start here Sunday against the Houston Astros.
