Dont look now but the bargain basement Mets have spent 50% of there avilable money on 2 players last night at the Winter Meetings.
The Mets now have a backup catcher that can whack lefties in Ronny Paulino and add a arm to the bullpen by signing former D-Back reliever DJ Carrasco. Carrasco, a right hander had a ERA out of the pen of 3.68 and struck out 65 in 78 innings but also walked 34 which is high. He held batters to a .239 average last year.
Paulino will play behind Thole but now the Mets have a decent backup incase Thole goes down with injury.
Paulino signed for 1 year at 1.3m while the Mets broke the bank and spent 2.5M on Carrasco over 2 years.
