Chris Carter, who tied for the National League lead in home runs last season, has finalized a $3.5 million, one-year contract with the Yankees. Carter’s career-high 41 home runs last season matched Colorado’s Nolan Arenado (ahr-eh-NAH’-doh) for tops in the senior circuit. Carter became a free agent in December when Milwaukee failed to offer a 2017 contract.
Carter hit .222 with a career-best 94 RBIs while appearing in a NL-leading 160 games last season.
Sam Saunders fired a first-round 7-under 64 for the clubhouse first round lead at the storied Riviera Country Club in this week’s Genesis Open.

The defending champion is Bubba Watson and he is facing the challenge of the strongest field of the new year as eight of the top 10 players are playing. The only two sitting it out are Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson
