"According to a baseball source, the Red Sox agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed $1.2 million deal for 2012 with Alfredo Aceves, thereby avoiding salary arbitration with the pitcher. The deal includes up to $100,000 in potential bonuses, either should Aceves end up in the Red Sox rotation (with $25,000 bonuses should he reach five, 10, 15 or 25 starts) or back in the bullpen (with $25,000 bonuses awarded for 55, 60, 65 and 70 appearances), with a maximum of $100,000 in potential bonuses."
