The New York Mets shored up their bullpen by acquiring right-hander Mychal Givens from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for right-handed pitching prospect Saul Gonzalez, the teams announced Tuesday.

Givens, 32, is enjoying a solid season, sporting a 2.66 ERA, 3.83 FIP, and 1.25 WHIP with 51 strikeouts, 19 walks, and two saves across 40 outings. He’ll add additional depth to the Mets’ bullpen.

In Flushing, Givens will be reunited with Buck Showalter, who managed him with the Baltimore Orioles.

Gonzalez, 22, owns a 2.81 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 29 strikeouts and seven walks across 25 2/3 innings at Low-A St. Lucie this season.
