RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Christopher Acosta.
Acosta is an 18-year-old who signed as an international free agent in July 2014, receiving a $1.5M signing bonus. He has a low-90s fastball with good movement and a good changeup he'll throw at any time. His third pitch is a curveball that needs work. Acosta made nine starts in the DSL in 2015, finishing with a 4.28 ERA and a 22-to-5 K-to-BB rate in 33.2 innings. He also spent a month on the DL due to an ankle injury. We'd like to see better results out of a highly regarded prospect in the DSL, but he didn't allow a homer and it's early in his development. We'll see him stateside in Lowell or the GCL in 2016.
