Mets acquired RHP Zachary Thornton and a player to be named from the Mets in exchange for 1B Ike Davis.
The 25-year-old right-hander spent the 2013 season between the rotation and the bullpen across three minor league levels, compiling a 2.63 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 90/12 K/BB ratio in 75 1/3 innings. With the toll that injuries have taken in the Mets bullpen, he could quickly work his way into the mix with the big league club. Fri, Apr 18, 2014 07:25:00 PM

Pirates acquired RHP Zach Thornton from the Athletics for RHP Chris Resop.

Thornton, a 23rd round pick from the 2010 draft, posted a 4.53 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 53 2/3 innings as a 24-year-old at High-A Stockton in 2012. He's unlikely to make an impact at the major league level in 2013.
