The Yankees have reportedly signed Chris Carter, so watch him crush a homer at Yankee Stadium

The Yankees already had an imposing core of right-handed sluggers, with the amazing Gary Sanchez doing ridiculous things and the back-to-back power of phenoms Aaron Judge and Tyler Austin. 

Earlier in the winter they also signed Matt Holliday to a free-agent deal, adding the veteran to the mix.

But no, their offseason shopping list wasn't complete. On Tuesday, the Bronx Bombers brought in Chris Carter on a one-year deal (pending a physical), according to a source. Check the video atop this post for a glimpse of Carter in New York, crushing a go-ahead homer deep into the night during a game in 2014. 

Yes, Chris Carter. The guy who just hit 41 homers for the Brewers last season (good for a tie atop the NL home run leaderboards with the Rockies' Nolan Arenado), and made it all just look impossibly easy:

So, you may be asking yourself, what might a full season of Carter (in whatever role the Yankees find for him) do at Yankee Stadium, a park several other right-handed hitters made look tiny in '16? Maybe this: 

Good luck to any opposing pitcher that takes the hill in the Bronx this summer.
