In their second trade of the day, Monday, the New York Mets acquired pitcher Jerry Blevins from the Washington Nationals
Blevins, 31, spent the first seven seasons of his career in the Oakland Athletics' bullpen before going to Washington in 2014.
Last season, Blevins appeared in 64 games for Washington, amassing a 2-3 record and a 4.87 ERA.
Den Dekker, a fifth-round pick by the Mets in 2010, will bring outfield depth to the Nationals. In 237 career Major League plate appearances he's hit one home run and posted a .238 career batting average.
New York will take on Blevins' entire salary in 2015, Fox Sports reported. He is due $2.4 million this upcoming season.
