So the Yankees announced they have non-tendered Dustin Moseley and Alfredo Aceves!

The Aceves move is one I can’t begin to understand. Yes, he had back trouble and yes he broke his collarbone, but he was expected to return around March 1st. Plus, he will not be eligible for arbitration until after 2011 and he pitched pretty well when healthy. This is a guy who would have cost 1/2 of what Mitre signed for in 2011, why would you get rid of him? I assume his back is doing better since he was out biking when he broke his collarbone. The 40-man roster would have been at 32 if they had kept Aceves, plenty of room to bring back their free agents and sign some other ones. I don’t get it at all.

Anyone have any answers?
