Carter hit .239 last year to go with those HRs, but he did have a good OBP. He also averaged .268 in those 1000+ ABs in 4 partial seasons in AAA. Seems to me he's another placeholder just above replacement value 1B/DH/LF like Carlos Pena, Brett Wallace and Fernando Martinez. Lowrie is a good player when healthy.

Sounds like Brad Peacock was the centerpiece of the deal.
