Acosta's status up in the air for weekend
NEW YORK -- An X-ray on Manny Acosta's hyperextended right wrist revealed no break, but the Mets remain unsure of the reliever's status for this weekend's Subway Series.

After falling on his hand in the eighth inning of Thursday's game, Acosta underwent testing and had a heavy wrap placed on his wrist. As of game time Friday, the Mets had not put him on the DL, though that may not preclude them from doing so at some point this weekend.

"It depends on how he can deal with the discomfort," manager Terry Collins said prior to Friday's game. "I'm sure he'll be a little sore today."

If the Mets do need to replace Acosta on the roster, they would likely call on right-hander Ryota Igarashi, who has not allowed a run at Triple-A Buffalo in nearly a month.

"We've got to make a determination if he can pitch or not," Collins said of Acosta. "We can probably get by [Friday], but we're not going to go this whole series short on pitchers."
