The New York Mets have officially released reliever D.J. Carrasco, called up right-handed pitcher Jack Egbert, and sent down left-handed pitcher Robert Carson, according to the team:

Carrasco, 35, only pitched three and two-thirds innings for the Mets this season, giving up six hits, no walks, two home runs, and three earned runs while striking out three over the course of four games. That gives him a 7.36 ERA for 2012, higher than his already-ugly-but-serviceable career 4.50 ERA.

Egbert, 29, last saw the big leagues in 2009. He has eight seasons of Minor League experience across the White Sox' and Mets' organizations. He's pitched twenty-six innings of 2.08 ERA ball, and roughly strikes out six while walking two every nine innings.

Carson appeared in two games for the Mets, allowing three hits, two runs, and two walks without recording a strikeout.
