Mets claim Acosta off waivers

|
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- In their continuing effort to create a bullpen, the Mets have claimed veteran right-handed reliever Manny Acosta on waivers from the Braves. A person familiar with the working for the Mets said as much on Tuesday.

The Braves had reassigned Acosta, 28, to their Minor League camp. The Mets are expected to do the same.

Acosta pitched seven innings in six exhibition game appearances, allowing five runs on six hits.
