BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles have signed right-handed reliever Alfredo Aceves to a minor league deal with a spring training invitation.

Aceves spent the last three years with Boston after pitching for three seasons with the New York Yankees.

The 31-year-old Aceves has a lifetime record of 30-14 with a 3.69 ERA and 29 saves -- all but four of them in 2012.

Aceves bounced between the Red Sox and Triple-A Pawtucket last season. He was 4-1 in 11 games with Boston and 4-2 in eight starts with Pawtucket.

In August 2012, the Red Sox suspended Aceves for three games for conduct detrimental to the team following an argument with then-manager Bobby Valentine.
