The NY Mets have made their first moves because they plan their October run.
The Mets acquired outfielder Tyler Naquin and lefty relief pitcher Phillip Diehl from the Cincinnati Reds for multiple prospects. The Mets are sending pitcher Jose Acuna and infielder Hector Rodriguez in the offer, that was announced by both teams Thursday night.
Naquin, 31, is hitting .245 with six homers, 31 RBIs plus a .305 on-base percentage in 2022. Diehl, 27, has allowed seven earned runs in 5.2 innings this year.
The Mets sit atop the NL East with a 61-37 record, three games prior to the Atlanta Braves.
