Source: Red Sox sign former Mariners pitcher Matt Carasiti


The Red Sox continue to add to their pitching depth.

According to multiple major league sources, Connecticut native Matt Carasiti has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Red Sox with an invitation to major league camp.

The 29-year-old righty appeared in 11 games for the Mariners in 2019, making five starts. Carasiti underwent Tommy John surgery in March after signing a minor-league deal with the Giants.

A product of Berlin (Conn.) High recently executed a workout for approximately nine teams at his hometown field, with the Red Sox ultimately winning out for the services of Carasiti.

The former St. John's University star was originally drafted in the sixth-round of the 2012, making his major league debut with Colorado in 2016. Carasiti went on to turn in a productive Triple-A season with the Cubs organization the following season before signing with the Yakult Swallows in Japan for the 2017 and '18 seasons.
