The New York Mets acquired right-handers Trevor Gott and Chris Flexen in exchange for lefty Zach Muckenhirn on Monday, The Athletic and New York Post reported

A bold move to a different banana-colored bench than we anticipated | Keep it a Buck(et)

Flexen was designated for assignment last week, and Muckenhirn was DFA’d by the Mets on Sunday night. Flexen is owed the remainder of his $8 million salary for this season

Gott, 30, is 0-3 with a 4.03 ERA in 30 relief appearances this season. He was in his first season in Seattle after stints with four other teams. He’s 16-13 with a 4.70 ERA in 221 career relief appearances.

Flexen, 29, is 0-4 with a 7.71 ERA in 17 appearances (four starts). He returns to the Mets, who selected him in the 14th round of the 2012 draft. He went 3-11 with an 8.07 ERA in three seasons with the Mets (2017-19), then spent the 2020 season in the Korean Baseball Organization

Muckenhirn, 28, appeared in just three games for the Mets, posting a 6.00 ERA. He made his major league debut on May 3

Elieser Hernandez took Muckenhirn’s spot on the 40-man roster after getting reinstated from the 60-day injured list. He was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse.
