After not being tendered a contract by the Brewers, Chris Carter has not signed with any MLB team. While there has been interest from teams like the Rays and Rangers, Carter is looking to move on to Japan to get regular playing time. He tied for the National League lead in home runs in 2016 with 41.Carter’s 41 home runs in 2016, and 37 home runs per 162 games since 2012, are interesting, but he also only has a .221 batting average over that time span. In fact, Carter has not topped a .321 OBP in any season where he has more than 250 at-bats and has struck out 751 times over the last four seasons. Eric Thames will get the first shot at playing time for the Brewers at 1B, but Carter would give a power boost if he is in a hitter’s ballpark like Texas.
