Octavio Acosta has been promoted to the St. Lucie Mets, taking the roster spot of Matt Bowman who was placed on the DL. Thats a huge jump for the 23 year old Acosta who had struck out just about as many (40) as he had put on base (31 H, 8 BB).

A+: St. Lucie Mets (28-23) off
After being swept by Jupiter the FSL Mets are 1.5 games behind Charlotte for the second half division lead. They head to Palm Beach (28-26) for a three game set and then Fort Myers (26-27) for a 4 game/3 day series. That's a 7 game road trip against the two teams just behind them in the standings. These games will go a long way in determining if St. Lucie is going to challenge for a playoff spot down the stretch.
