Matt Carpenter has landed with the New York Yankees.
The team announced the signing of the three-time All-Star infielder to a major-league deal and added him to the active roster.
Carpenter, 36, was released by the Texas Rangers last this week. He had appeared in 21 games at Triple-A Round Rock, batting .275 with six home runs and 19 runs batted in.
A native of Galveston, TX, Carpenter spent the entirety of his big-league career with the St. Louis Cardinals.
In 11 years with the Cards, Carpenter batted .262 with 155 HR, 576 RBI and an OPS of .816.
An All-Star in 2013, 2014 and 2016, Carpenter was named a Silver Slugger in 2013.
The Yankees open up a four-game set with the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night at Tropicana Field.
