FLUSHING, Queens — The pitching-thin New York Mets have acquired left-hander Rich Hill from the Tampa Bay Rays.

The 41-year-old Hill is 6-4 with a 3.89 ERA in 19 starts for the contending Rays.

The Rays are getting right-hander Tommy Hunter and minor league catcher Matt Dyer in return.

The NL East leaders made the deal on the day Hill was supposed to start at Cleveland, and a week before the trade deadline.
