Mets acquire LHP Daniel Zamora from Pittsburgh

The New York Mets today announced that the club has acquired LHP Daniel Zamora and cash considerations from Pittsburgh in exchange for LHP Josh Smoker.
 
Zamora, 24, posted a 1.86 ERA (11 earned runs/53.1 innings) with 61 strikeouts in 37 games with Bradenton (A) of the Florida State League last year. He also hurled 3.0 scoreless innings in two contests with Altoona (AA) of the Eastern League in 2017. Zamora combined to go 2-4 with nine saves, allowed only two home runs and issued 19 walks. He was named to the mid-season Florida State League All-State team.
 
The 6-3, 190-pounder was the Pirates 40th-round draft pick in 2015 from Stony Brook University. At the time he was drafted, he was the 15th current player from Stony Brook in professional baseball.
 
Zamora has gone 6-6 with 12 saves over 74 minor league games in the Pirates minor league system. He has racked up 133 strikeouts in 115.2 innings while posting a 2.49 ERA.
 
Smoker, 29, was 1-2 with a 5.11 ERA (32 earned runs/56.1 innings) in 54 games for the Mets last season.
