LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — The New York Mets have finalized a $2.5 million, two-year contract with right-hander D.J. Carrasco and a $1.3 million, one-year deal with catcher Ronny Paulino.

The 33-year-old Carrasco went a combined 3-2 with a 3.68 ERA in 63 games last season for Pittsburgh and Arizona. He has a 23-17 major league record for six seasons that include stints with Kansas City and the Chicago White Sox.

Paulino will miss the first eight games while completing a 50-game suspension for a positive steroids test, either for Clomiphene or Oxandrolone. The 29-year-old hit .259 with four homers and 37 RBIs for Florida last season before the ban.

He has a .273 career average in six seasons. Paulino started his big league career with Pittsburgh.

The agreements were announced Thursday.
