Scouting Report:
Yankees: Aceves will make his first big league start on Tuesday, taking over for Darrell Rasner, who was moved to long relief. Aceves was a fast mover through the Yankees' system after being signed out of the Mexican League. Promoted to the big leagues on Aug. 28, Aceves was 8-6 with a 2.62 ERA in 25 games (23 starts) at Class A Tampa, Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Angels: Weaver's start was pushed back three days after he suffered metal cuts on his right ring and middle fingers in an accident in the visitors' dugout at Comerica Park on Tuesday night. Weaver pitched relatively well on Saturday against the Rangers but was hurt by high pitch counts as he exited after five-plus innings after throwing 108 pitches. He allowed three runs on five hits while striking out six and walking two. His strikeout totals are up in his past four starts, over which he has struck out 29 batters in 23 1/3 innings. Weaver is 3-1 with a 6.14 ERA in four career starts against the Yankees.
