Ryota Igarashi, who strained his hamstring in the 8th inning of last night’s game has been placed on the DL. Manny Acosta, who was pitching for Triple-A Buffalo, has been tabbed to replace him.
Acosta pitched in 36 games for the Braves last season, all in relief. Over 37 1/3 innings he allowed 47 hits, struck out 32 and walked 19. He surrendered four home runs. ERA: 4.34, WHIP: 1.714.
For Buffalo this season, he’s appeared in five games, 8 1/3 innings, allowing two earned runs and seven hits for a 2.16 ERA and 0.960 WHIP.
Good thing I didn’t buy that “Igarashi” jersey just yet.
