Igarashi to the DL, Acosta to CitiField

According to Adam Rubin of, the Mets were forced to make a roster move today in case Ryota Igarashi had to be put on the DL with a hamstring issue.  Metsblog is saying Igarashi has in fact been placed on the DL.

In response the Mets brought up former Braves reliever Manny Acosta who has a 2.16 ERA in triple-A since the Mets picked him up after he was designated for assigment by the Atlanta Braves.

I'm sorry to see Igarashi hurt, especially considering how good the Mets 'pen has been so far this year.  HOWEVER, I was one of the people who liked this Acosta signing and I am very excited to what this guy is all about after hearing about how good he was going to be with the Braves.
