According to Spanish language sports site Impacto Deportivo, the Mets and Luis Castillo have agreed on a four-year, $25 million contract.
Thanks go Google, we have the site roughly translated into Spanglish:
The intermedista Dominican Luis Castillo remain over four seasons with the Meters in New York.The news has thus far been unconfirmed by any English-speaking news outlets, so we'll just consider this one unofficial until further notice. (Hat tip: Rotoworld)
According learned impactodeportivo.com.do, Castillo and the Meters reached an agreement four years by 25 million.
UPDATE [9:17pm]: Ken Rosenthal at FOX Sports confirms it, though he only indicates that they are close to a deal, not that one has actually been completed. Extending a four-year offer to a player with questionable health is definitely a risky move. When Castillo is healthy the Mets can count on solid defense and good on-base skills but zero in the power department. If a four-year deal with Castillo was the only thing standing in the way of a four-year, $36 million pact with David Eckstein then I guess this is good news.
