HOW ACQUIRED: Signed on January 8, 2020. Selected during End-of-Year Waivers Process.
A graduate of the Real Salt Lake-Arizona Academy, Acosta is capable of playing as a center back, left back, and holding midfielder. The 22-year-old will look to jumpstart his career with the Galaxy in 2020 after a disappointing couple of seasons.
INTERNATIONAL: Acosta has made 16 appearances for the United States U-20s. During that span, he won the 2017 CONCACAF U-20s Championship - scoring the game-winning penalty in the final against his home country of Honduras - and represented the United States at the 2017 U-20 World Cup in South Korea.
