Right-handed pitcher José Acuña retired all 12 batters he faced in a relief appearance Sunday for the Daytona Tortugas, the Low-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds, against the St. Lucie Mets.

Acuña, 19, was acquired along with minor-league outfielder Hector Rodriguez by the Reds in last week's trade of outfielder Tyler Naquin and minor-league pitcher Phillip Diehl to the New York Mets.
