Giants sign reliever Acosta to one-year deal

Kyodo

The Yomiuri Giants have acquired 31-year-old reliever Manny Acosta on a one-year, ¥100 million contract, the Central League club said Thursday.

The 193-cm, 98-kg right-hander went 1-3 with one save and a 6.46 ERA in 45 games for the New York Mets last season, also pitching 17 games in the minors. The native of Panama is 13-13 for his career with nine saves and a 3.99 ERA.

The Giants had the best bullpen in Japan last season as they went on to win the CL pennant and the Japan Series. Yomiuri's relievers went 24-8 with 48 saves and 106 holds and a 1.80 ERA.
