If you've wondered whether Chris Carter was the first HR champ to get nontendered...correct! ESPN Stats & Info says the only thing close is the 1974 White Sox selling Dick Allen to the Braves because he said he was going to retire. Then the Phillies talked him into unretiring.

A spokesperson for Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser told Outside the Lines the mayor signed a bill Wednesday banning smokeless tobacco at the city's sports venues, including Nationals Park. With Milwaukee expected to follow suit, at least 40 per cent of big league ballparks are likely to have legal prohibitions in place by next season, apart from the new MLB/MLBPA labor agreement's ban to apply only to new major leaguers.

The Brewers have non-tendered Chris Carter, who tied for the NL lead with 41 home runs, but struck out 206 times and is best suited for DH. Bottom five teams in first base production in 2016: Marlins, Rangers, Astros, Yankees, Nationals. Could also land in Toronto if Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista both end up signing elsewhere.

Braun: Not sure if I'm with Brewers next year

Ryan Braun wonders whether he still will be with the Milwaukee Brewers when spring training starts, saying at a team charity event: "Not knowing 100 percent where [I'll] be playing is hard."

Alderman Michael Murphy told Outside the Lines that the Milwaukee Common Council voted 14-1 Tuesday to approve the bill he proposed to prohibit smokeless tobacco use at city sports venues, including Miller Park. Murphy said he expects the mayor to soon sign it into law. Washington's city council took similar action last month. The two cities would join San Francisco, Boston, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago in enacting such measures. A statewide law goes into effect next year in California, affecting MLB ballparks in Anaheim, Oakland and San Diego. "We're sending the message that smokeless tobacco is unacceptable in professional sports, the same way we feel about cigarette smoking," Murphy said, adding that he hopes MLB and the players union adopt a league-wide ban in their current collective bargaining negotiations.

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

The Milwaukee City Council voted by a 13-1 margin on Tuesday to ban smokeless tobacco products at the city's sports facilities, including the Brewers' Miller Park. Twelve of 30 MLB stadiums will be tobacco-free by the start of the 2017 season, including both New York ballparks.
