Gary Carter, 36, accepted the Dodgers’ invitation to spring training Tuesday, agreeing to sign a one-year, $500,000 contract if he makes the team as the backup catcher to Mike Scioscia. The 11-time all-star was allowed to leave the San Francisco Giants as a free agent last year after hitting .254 in 244 at-bats with nine home runs and 27 runs batted in. Carter will compete for the backup job with Barry Lyons, who had been his backup on the New York Mets.
