The Mets have sent for former Brave Manny Acosta to join them at Citi Field as they place
Ryota Igarashi placed on DL with hamstring issue steming from last nights attempt at picking up bunt.
The right-hander was 1-1 with a 4.34 ERA in 36 games with Atlanta last season over 37 1/3 innings. Mets picked him up when the Braves released him this spring
He is 0-1 with a 2.16 ERA in five relief appearances with the Bisons.
Kiko Calero was one of the last cuts this spring in Mets camp so Acosta must have jumped him during the first couple weeks of the season.
update 4-22**** He was awful in his first apperance. Acosta's line in last nights 9-3 loss to the Cubs*****
3 runs 2 hits 1 home run 3 strikeout and 2 walks in 1 and 1/3 innings.
