Explanation on Carrasco

Most of us would have liked to have seen D.J. Carrasco on waivers before FMart even if FMart ended up on waivers at some point.

The reliever really didn't show much last year posting a 6.02 ERA. I can understand keeping him around to see what he looks like in camp since your paying him 1.2M but not instead of FMart.

Even if I thought I would eventually cut FMart because that's how bad his knees are, Carrasco would have to go first.

But as many roster decisions are based upon, this came down to the contract, the Mets were paying him whether he stayed or not.
