The Mets acquired David Robertson for $10 million to bolster their bullpen

The Mets were busy on Thursday night.

Shortly after signing free agent center fielder Brandon Nimmo, the Mets have signed reliever David Robertson to a one-year, $10 million deal, The Post’s Joel Sherman has confirmed.

Robertson, 37, has pitched for five teams during his 14-year career, including two last season with the Cubs and the National League champion Phillies. He also spent nine years with the Yankees.

Robertson will bolster a Mets bullpen that already includes Edwin Diaz, recently acquired Brooks Reilly and possibly the team’s Rule 5 Zach Green. They also added relievers Jeff Bingham and Stephen Ridings this offseason.

Robertson was effective with both teams he worked for last season. He went a combined 4-3 for the Cubs and Phillies with a 2.40 ERA and 81 strikeouts in 63 2/3 innings. He also totaled 20 saves.

It’s been a productive winter so far for the Mets, who signed Justin Verlander and Jose Quintana after losing Jacob deGrom to the Rangers.
