The Mets have made a trade to improve their pitching depth.

According to Mike Puma of The New York Post, the Mets have acquired a pair of pitchers from the Miami Marlins in Elieser Hernandez and Jeff Brigham in exchange for minor league pitcher Franklin Sanchez.

Hernandez, a right-hander, posted a 6.35 ERA across 62.1 innings for the Marlins last season. However, the 27-year-old has experience as both a starter and reliever, which is the type of hybrid role the Mets are looking to fill with Trevor Williams becoming a free agent.

As for Brigham, he is a 30-year-old reliever that posted a 3.38 ERA across 24 innings a season ago.

Both Hernandez and Brigham were designated for assignment by the Marlins earlier in the week.
