The A's hit a lot of home runs and they appear to be bringing back a player that hits a lot of home runs.
Chris Carter, who played for the A's from 2010 through 2012, is reportedly signing a minor league contract to return to the organization.
News of the deal was first reported by FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman.
Carter was released by the Yankees on July 10. In 62 games for New York, Carter hit .201/.284/.370 with five doubles, eight home runs and 26 RBI.
Over the previous four seasons between Houston and Milwaukee, Carter hit 131 home runs and drove in 328 runs.
Carter's high-water mark with the A's came in 2012 when he hit 16 home runs in 67 games.
