(Joliet, IL) – The Joliet Slammers rounded out their Spring Training roster with the signing of RHP Daniel Carela.
“Carela throws hard and has affiliated baseball experience,” VP of Baseball Operations Ron Biga said. “We’re excited to see how he does in camp.”
Carela, 24, hails from New York City and attended Wallace Community College. He signed with the Mets as an undrafted free agent in 2009. He was outstanding in 2010 as he recorded a 2-1 record with a 1.63 ERA in 22 games for the GCL Mets and the Brooklyn Cyclones.
The right-hander moved on to the Dodgers organization and split time in 2011 with the AZL Dodgers and the High Single-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. He recorded a 4.35 ERA in the hitter-friendly California League.
