It took about a week, but the Chris Carter signing is official.
The New York Yankees announced Carter has been placed on the 40-man roster. As a corresponding move, the Yankees designated LHP Richard Bleier for assignment.
In 23 appearances for the Yankees, Bleier had a 1.96 ERA. Carter on the other hand had 41 home runs and 94 RBI with the Milwaukee Brewers last season.
Carter will wear No. 48 with the Yankees. No. 48 was previously worn by Eric Young Jr., Andrew Miller, and Boone Logan.
