Braves Sign Reliever D.J. Carrasco

The Braves have signed D.J. Carrasco.

The Atlanta Braves have signed right-handed reliever D.J. Carrasco to a minor league contract, and assigned him to the triple-A Gwinnett Braves.

Carrasco, 35, pitched in four games for the New York Mets this season before being released. He went 0-0 with a 7.36 ERA (3 ER in 3.2 IP), walked none and struck out three. Carrasco also made two appearances out of the bullpen for Triple-A Buffalo of the International League, going 0-0 with a 3.00 ERA (1 ER in 3.0 IP).

A veteran of eight Major League seasons, Carrasco has previously pitched for the Kansas City Royals (2003-2005), Chicago White Sox (2008-2009), Pittsburgh Pirates (2010), Arizona Diamondbacks (2010) and Mets (2011-2012). He’s 24-21 with a 4.50 ERA (247 ER in 493.2 IP) and two saves in 290 career appearances, including 24 career starts.

This is not a major signing by any means, but an organization can never have too many serviceable bullpen arms. He's at Gwinnett for now, the team will see how he performs, and if there's a need he'll get the call. He's kind of like Chad Durbin, part deux, though D.J. is a side-armer.
