Yankees release Chris Carter

The New York Yankees have released first baseman Chris Carter.

What It Means:

Reports arose last night of the move and it has since been confirmed by the Yankees' public relations department. Carter led the NL in home runs a year ago, so he shouldn't be on the market for long. Meanwhile, Ji-Man Choi will play some first base, but that could just be until the Yankees make a trade for a proven slugger at the position.

This season, Carter has just 8 home runs and a .290 wOBA in 208 plate appearances. He's a year removed from a 41-homer season with the Milwaukee Brewers.
