Carter tied for second in the majors with a career-high 37 homers last season. The 28-year-old hit .227 with 88 RBIs, which also were the most of his career. It was his second season in Houston after a trade from Oakland.
Analysis: Carter spent 118 games at designated hitter and started 14 games at first base and six in the outfield. He made just $510,000 last season, and Wednesday's deal includes several award bonuses, among them $25,000 for being named to the All-Star game and $25,000 if he wins a Silver Slugger award.
