D.J. Carrasco Open To Being Traded

Jenifer Langosch reports that Pirates reliever D.J. Carrasco wouldn’t mind being traded to a contending team:

“Yeah, I’d like to have an opportunity to go and play in the postseason and play with a contender,” Carrasco said on Wednesday. “I’m not getting any younger. That window gets a little smaller as you get older. At the same time, hopefully it could help the Pirates build if they can get what they need from me.”

Carrasco doesn’t have a no-trade clause in his contract, so ultimately his interest in being traded won’t weigh very heavily in the Pirates’ decision about whether or not to actually deal him, but this is interesting nonetheless.

Octavio Dotel has also expressed interest in being dealt to a better team.
