Diamondbacks hire Joe Carter as special assistant


As announced on the official Twitter account of the Arizona Diamondbacks …

It’s the first front office type of job for Carter, who played for six different teams — most famously the Toronto Blue Jays — between 1983-1998. Carter was a .216/.310/.412 hitter in 51 career at-bats against new Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart. They were both on Toronto’s 1993 World Series team.

It’s not clear what role exactly Carter will have in Arizona. These special assistant gigs all differ.
