Mets, Castillo, Four More Years, En Espanol!

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.

According learned impactodeportivo.com.do, Castillo and the Meters reached an agreement four years by 25 million.

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)

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.
