Scouting Report: Somewhat polished for his age. Seen as the top pitching prospect in the Dominican Republic in the 2014 signing period, he shows an advanced feel for pitching and utilizes a three-pitch mix. He is lanky and should add 20-30 pounds as he matures. He throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, and his mechanics could use some tightening up. His fastball sits in the low-90s already with good movement, and he throws his changeup—one of the best in the class—often and in any count. Acosta's third pitch is a curveball that could use some work, but he has shown confidence in as well.
