Mets Sign D.J. Carrasco

Reliever D.J. Carrasco finally has some job security after being non-tendered two years in a row.  The Mets officially signed him to a two-year, $2.5MM deal today. Carrasco will earn $1.2MM in base salary in 2011 and 2012, plus an additional $50K each for 65 relief appearances, 75 relief appearances, and 15 starts.

The Diamondbacks cut Carrasco last week, and he had six to eight suitors as a free agent. He posted a 3.68 ERA, 7.5 K/9, 3.9 BB/9, 0.57 HR/9, and 47.5% groundball rate in 78 1/3 innings this year.  He's durable, having led the AL in relief innings last year.  Carrasco's agent Terry Bross at Gaylord Sports secured the first multiyear deal of his career.  The righty turns 34 in April.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYorkAndy Martino of the New York Daily News, and Ed Price of AOL FanHouse reported on the story.
