MLB Free Agency Tracker: Matt Carpenter Signs with San Diego

Former Texas Rangers utility player Matt Carpenter signed a one-year deal with the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, the team announced

Carpenter’s deal, per the Athletic, is for $6.5 million in 2023 and has an option year in 2024 worth $5.5 million. The deal also includes several incentives. 

The 37-year-old Carpenter signed with the Rangers last offseason but he didn’t make the opening-day roster. The Rangers released him in late May despite his .275 batting average and six home runs in 21 games. The New York Yankees signed him and he became immediately productive, becoming the first Yankees player to hit six or more home runs in his first 10 games with the team.
