The Mets have acquired LHP Blake Taylor to complete the trade that sent Ike Davis to the Pirates in early May.

The Mets also got RHP Zack Thornton in the deal.

Taylor was drafted last season by the Pirates in the second round.

He entered the season typically ranked the 16th-best prospect in the Pirates system (Pirates Prospects, April 1).

He had a 2.57 ERA last year in 21 innings.

His fastball sits between 89-92 mph, according to online scouting reports.

Taylor, a high draftee out of Dana Hills, California, will be assigned to the Mets rookie-level Gulf Coast league affiliate.

Davis has hit .252 with a .736 OPS and four home runs in 50 games since being traded to the Pirates.
