The battle for free agent, Chris Carter, has come to an end. Carter will now head to the Bronx and play for the New York Yankees, pending a physical.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports, the Yankees and Carter have agreed on a one-year, $3 million contract with the first baseman.

Carter, 30, collected 41 home runs and 94 RBIs in the 2016 season with the Milwaukee Brewers in 160 games. He tied the NL lead with his 41 homers. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Los Angeles Dodgers had looked into the first baseman on Monday.

What did Chris Carter have that the Dodgers offense didn’t?

Well, success against left-handed pitchers compared to Adrián González. This is now in the past.

And the Dodgers will have to find another path to improve their at-bats against lefties.
