The Braves have signed D.J. Carrasco and assigned him to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Carrasco, 35, had a 7.36 ERA in in four relief appearances with the Mets this season. He was cut loose after a May 16 game in which he surrendered a homer to Cincinnati's Todd Frazier, and a day after he irritated teammates by badly missing a target and drilling Ryan Braun with a pitch.

Carrasco was in the second season of a two-year, $2.4 million deal. The Mets remain responsible for that salary, less the prorated portion of the major league minimum if he is promoted by Atlanta.
