Eric Thames joins Brewers, who cut Chris Carter

MILWAUKEE (AP) Free agent Eric Thames agreed Tuesday to a $16 million, three-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, who cut first baseman Chris Carter after a 41-homer season that tied for the National League lead.

A 30-year-old first baseman and outfielder who spent the last three seasons with the NC Dinos in South Korea, Thames gets $4 million next season, $5 million in 2018 and $6 million in 2019. Milwaukee has a $7.5 million option for 2020 with a $1 million buyout.

He hit .348 with 124 home runs, 379 RBIs and 64 steals in 388 games in South Korea - and he will play next season with a definite attitude.
