Mike Carp opts out of minor league deal with Dodgers

Veteran first baseman/outfielder Mike Carp, who signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers two weeks ago, has opted out of the deal according to MLB Trade Rumors.

No word yet on whether Carp has another deal lined up, so it’s possible he decided to leave simply because the playing time in the Triple-A lineup was going to be sparse for the 28-year-old.

Carp put up big numbers in a part-time role for the Red Sox during their championship-winning 2013 season and has a solid .744 career OPS, but hit .175 for the Red Sox and Rangers last season.
