The Mets have agreed to a two-year contract with reliever D.J. Carrasco, who was recently non-tendered by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Carrasco's being brought in to help shore up a bullpen that's already lost some significant 2010 contributors, including Hisanori Takahashi and Pedro Feliciano.
The 33-year-old Carrasco is a righty with 440.2 innings of Major League experience. He was known to have a handful of suitors after being non-tendered, as he's kept his ERA under four for three consecutive years. He works predominantly off of a fastball, cutter, and curve, and is able to keep enough balls on the ground to avoid getting into home run trouble.
