The Mets will get outfielder Jake Marisnick from the Astros in exchange for outfielder Kenedy Corona and lefty Blake Taylor.

In seven seasons, Marisnick is a career.227 hitter with 54 HR and 178 RBI with an OPS of.660. He could play centre field and allow the Mets to use Brandon Nimmo primarily in left. Left fielder Michael Brantley isn't going anywhere this offseason, so right field is the clear entry point for Tucker, who has nothing left to prove in Triple A.

He batted.233 with 10 homers and 34 RBIs for the Astros last season in 73 starts. With just a year until free agency, Marisnick is likely an outfield rental for NY.

Juan Lagares, who played 125 games in centre for NY last season, became a free agent.

The Kings and the National Basketball Association launched a joint investigation into the allegations in April. Investigators tried to interview Tennant on multiple occasions, but she declined to participate.

Marisnick slid hard into home plate on July 7, giving Los Angeles Angels catcher Jonathan Lucroy a concussion and broken nose.

The 28-year-old is heading into his final season of arbitration eligibility and is projected to earn $3 million, according to MLB Trade Rumors.

Taylor, 24, is a right-handed reliever who rose to Triple-A this season with a 2.16 ERA split between three levels. He went 3-for-8 with a walk during the Astros' World Series loss to the Nationals. Corona, 19, hit.301 in 219 at-bats at the Dominican Summer League Mets, the Gulf Coast Mets and Class A Brooklyn.
