(4/21/2014) The Padres have sold the rights to pitcher Anthony Carter to the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters of the Nippon Professional Baseball League in Japan, MLB.com reports.
"He had interest in going over to Japan prior to us signing him," Padres assistant general manager A.J. Hinch said. "They showed interest, and we matched it up against our depth and felt it would be mutually beneficial."
Carter allowed two runs in three innings at the Triple-A level this season.
