The Twins acquired Carter in a trade with the Angels on Tuesday.

Carter signed a minor-league deal with the Angels in February but failed to crack the Opening Day roster after spring training. The 31-year-old has a .255/.333/.600 slash line with 13 home runs and 49 strikeouts at the Triple-A level this season. A big-league opportunity could present itself for the veteran power hitter at some point this season, but for now he will report to Triple-A Rochester.
