FLUSHING, N.Y. – The New York Mets today announced that they have signed free agent righthanded pitcher D.J. Carrasco to a two-year contract. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Carrasco, 33, split the 2010 season between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Arizona Diamondbacks, making a combined 63 appearances. He went 3-2 with a 3.68 ERA (32 earned runs/78.1 innings) and allowed 68 hits and 34 walks while striking out 65. The reliever established career bests in appearances, ERA and strikeouts last season while limiting righthanded batters to a .227 (41-181) batting average.

In six big league seasons with the Kansas City Royals, Chicago White Sox, Arizona and Pittsburgh, the 6-3, 220-pound hurler has compiled a 23-18 record and a 4.31 ERA (211 earned runs / 440.2 innings).

Since 2008, Carrasco has gone 9-3 with a 3.77 ERA (88 earned runs/210.1 innings). For his career, he is 18-10 with a 4.03 ERA (141 earned runs/315.0 innings) as a reliever while going 5-8 with a 5.01 ERA (70 earned runs/125.2 innings) as a starter.

The Safford, Arizona native was originally selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 26th round of the 1997 First-Year Player Draft out of Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona.
