Acosta appears headed to Flushing

By Adam Rubin

Manny Acosta is expected to be promoted from Triple-A Buffalo and be on the active roster Friday. Acosta will replace Mike O'Connor, who has been optioned to the Bisons.

Acosta notched saves on three straight days last weekend. He was 1-0 with a 0.68 ERA in May, striking out 21 while allowing nine hits and seven walks in 13 1/3 innings.
