The Mets will activate Ryota Igarashi from the disabled list today. Manny Acosta is the one that will lose his roster spot. He’ll be optioned to Triple-A Buffalo. The surprise is that Jenrry Mejia isn’t the one being optioned. There have been rumors all week that he was going to Buffalo to stretch out in an effort to come back at some point as a starter.

Not so surprising is that Oliver Perez won’t go to the minors. He’s dead weight on the roster right now. The word is that he told the Mets that he’s not interested in going to the minors to work out his problems.

Acosta has pitched pretty well for the Mets in 12 games this season. He hasn’t given up a run in his last seven appearances. But he has allowed 50% of his inherited runners to score.
