The Globe reports that Matt Albers is headed for the disabled list with a sore lat muscle (behind his shoulder) and Alfredo Aceves is on his way to Boston from Pawtucket.
Albers retired three of his four batters on Opening Day. He also pitched an inning in Cleveland on Tuesday, striking out the side and walking one.
Aceves was set to start the PawSox's season-opener on Thursday night, but was scratched before game time. Scott Atchinson got the ball instead and struck out eight over 4.2 innings in Pawtucket's 2-1 win. Hideki Okajima pitched a perfect eighth inning.
