New York Mets acquire Tyler Naquin, Phillip Diehl in trade with Cincinnati Reds

The first-place New York Mets acquired outfielder Tyler Naquin and left-handed reliever Phillip Diehl from the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday night in a trade for two minor leaguers.

Cincinnati received outfielder Hector Rodríguez and right-hander Jose Acuña.

Naquin, a first-round draft pick 10 years ago, was batting .246 with seven homers and 33 RBI in 56 games for the struggling Reds, who are last in the NL Central. He homered and drove in two runs Thursday in a 7-6 loss to Miami….

The Mets view the 31-year-old Naquin as a good all-around player who can start a couple of times a week against right-handed pitching, against whom he has solid career numbers (.280/.332/.473 with 50 homers). They had been interested in him since last month and talks intensified when the clubs began exchanging names a few days ago.

You'd think an Acuña trade would be generating more discussion

Looking up these guys: both teenagers with some promise. Sure, why not.

It's been a long time since the Mets embarrassed themselves, what's going on? Naquin is a terrific acquisition...

Naquin killed the Mets in 2021.

Naquin is a terrific acquisition...

Huh? Maybe we just have different ideas of "terrific." Naquin is a career 102 OPS+ OF with 3.6 WAR, -2 WAA ... in short, a reliable 4th OF "who can start a couple of times a week against right-handed pitching, against whom he has solid career numbers (.280/.332/.473 with 50 homers)." Nothing wrong with this acquisition (as long as the Mets didn't give up anybody good), he's a useful guy to have around and will free up McNeil for more IF duty and take away even more time from Dom Smith.
