by Chris Cwik |

The Diamondbacks have hired Joe Carter as the team's Special Assistant to the General Manager, the team announced. 

A 16-year veteran in the majors, Carter is most known for hitting a walkoff home run to win the 1993 world series. He played with six different teams over his career, with most of his time coming in Toronto. With the Blue Jays, Carter played two years with current Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart. 

Carter has done some TV work since retiring in 1998.

GM Stewart: D-Backs no longer pursuing James Shields
by Michael Hurcomb |

It appears the Diamondbacks are no longer pursuing free agent starting pitcher James Shields. Just a few weeks after saying Arizona remain interested in Shields, general manager Dave Stewart said Thursday the Diamondbacks are no longer in on the 33-year-old pitcher.

With Shields seeking a contract worth $100 million, it was going to be difficult to sign him since the Diamondbacks' payroll is already around $106 million.

"The truth is, I haven't even thought about how," Stewart said Jan. 13. "We'll look at the numbers and look at who we'll have to possibly subtract, if that's what we have to do.

"I would like to be (under $100 million). I've not been told to be, but I would like to be."
