Former Red Sox pitcher Alfredo Aceves has agreed to a minor league deal with the Orioles, with an invitation to major league camp. According to USA Today, the righty will receive a base salary of $1.2 million if he makes the major league team, with an opportunity to reach $3 million with incentives.

The 31-year-old last pitched in the major leagues July 9, completing a 2013 season with the Red Sox in which he made 11 appearances (making six starts). Aceves finished ’13 with a 4.86 ERA, allowing a .288 batting average against in 37 innings.

Aceves made eight starts for Triple-A Pawtucket, going 4-2 with a 4.06 ERA. He had been designated for assignment by the Red Sox in July, with a team source classifying him as no longer a “reliable” major league contributor. He first joined the Red Sox in ’11.

Aceves had been pitching in Mexican Winter League this offseason, making four outings (all in relief).
