Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter received less than promising results from his latest MRI exam, according to the online journal of his daughter, Kimmy Bloemers.
"I wish I could say that the results were good. ... There are now several new spots/tumors on my dad's brain. I write these words with tears because I am so sad for my dad," Bloemers wrote.
Carter, 57, was diagnosed in May with a malignant brain tumor. He had the latest MRI taken on Friday.
An 11-time All-Star, Carter had 324 career home runs, 1,225 RBIs and a .262 batting average with the Montreal Expos, New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants.
Carter helped the Mets to a World Series championship in 1986. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003.
