Mets To Acquire Elieser Hernandez, Jeff Brigham From Marlins

The Mets are set to acquire right-handers Elieser Hernandez and Jeff Brigham from the Marlins, reports Mike Puma of the New York Post. Minor league righty Franklin Sanchez is headed back to Miami in return. Both Hernandez and Brigham were designated for assignment by the Marlins earlier this week.

The acquisitions of Hernandez and Brigham will give the Mets some needed depth in both the rotation and the bullpen, where they’re currently faced with the prospect of losing significant chunks of their staff. Starters Jacob deGrom, Chris Bassitt and Taijuan Walker are all free agents, and while the Mets already re-signed Edwin Diaz, they’ve also seen Seth Lugo, Adam Ottavino, Mychal Givens, Trevor May and Trevor Williams reach the open market.

ah, the classic "FREE TO GOOD HOME!" trade.

one team has too many good prospects to protect ahead of Rule 5 draft, another has some open roster spots so they hand over a bucket of balls in return.

EHernandez - good in 6 starts in 2020 - may replace FA TWilliams as Mets' swingman and Brigham could grab one of 8 relief slots.

Franklin Sanchez is better than a "bucket of balls". I mean, given how well MIA has done developing pitchers, they could easily win this trade. Regardless, he's more than they'd have gotten back if they didn't make the trade.
