The Boston Red Sox suspended right-handed pitcher Alfredo Aceves for three games for conduct detrimental to the team, reports the Boston Globe.

According to the paper, Aceves was in a heated argument with manager Bobby Valentine on Friday night after he wasn't used to close out the game against the Kansas City Royals. The Red Sox won the game 4-3.

The night before in a 14-13 loss to the Los Angeles Angels, Aceves faced 10 batters, threw 37 pitches and was charged with the loss after giving up five earned runs.

Aceves is 2-8 with a 4.80 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 62.2 innings this season.
