Angels sign veteran sluggers Chris Carter, Chris Young
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels have signed veteran slugger Chris Carter and longtime outfielder Chris Young.
Carter got a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training on Sunday, while Young agreed to a one-year contract.
Carter played for the New York Yankees last season, batting .201 with eight homers. The first baseman is only one season removed from leading the NL with 41 homers for Milwaukee in 2016.
The 31-year-old Carter has 158 career homers, including three straight seasons with at least 24 homers for Houston.
Young spent last season with Boston, batting .235 with 25 RBIs in 90 games. He also has played for Arizona, Oakland and the Mets and Yankees.
The Angels traded first baseman C.J. Cron to Tampa Bay on Saturday.
