Pitcher, DJ Carrasco returns to the Dallas Spirits Baseball Club, bringing over 8 years of experience playing Major League and Professional Baseball. Carrasco was drafted by the Texas Rangers in 1995 out of Hayward High School out of Hayward, CA and was drafted a second time by the Baltimore Orioles in 1997 out of Pima Community College in Tucson, AZ.
DJ spent 9 seasons in the big leagues with stints in Kansas City, Chicago (White Sox), Pittsburgh, Arizona, and the New York Mets. A solid pitcher with a great bat, DJ is relied upon to both start and close games when available, as well as provide the Spirits with some additional offensive punch and power from the plate. A gifted leader with an outstanding personality, DJ brings leadership and tenure, along with a great sense of humor. Players and fans still look up to him and you can expect some great conversations when DJ is in the dugout.
Carrasco’s experience and knowledge of the game will be an asset to all players, and the club looks forward to his contributions both on and off the field.
