Coming off the best season of his Major League career, Chris Carter might be forced to continue his baseball career in Japan, according to a report.

"I think at some point we have to make it a serious consideration," Dave Stewart, the former Major League ace-turned-agent told FOX Sports. "It's getting late there, too. Those teams are filling their spaces, too."

Carter considered offers from Japan last offseason as well. He tied Nolan Arenado for the National League lead in home runs this past season with 41.
