4/8/14 - Ranked No. 96 in the state. Acosta has a long lean frame at 6-foot-1, 175-pounds and is highly athletic with projectability. Showed his athletic abilities multiple times defensively, highly advanced defender of his position, quick athletic feet and athletic arm action afford him the ability to make plays other pitchers might not. Controlled the game well, mound presence is there, has a good feel for what he’s doing. Delivery is athletic and repeatable, upright finish lacks extension. Arm action is short and quick, has the ability to hide the baseball, fastball gets on you quicker than velocity suggests, also makes for consistent and tight breaking ball.

Curveball has consistent action, showed depth and feel for the zone, 70-73 mph, flashed occasional 12/6 action. Sparingly showed a changeup at 77 mph.
