NEW YORK (AP) -- Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter says doctors discovered four "very small" brain tumors after he had an MRI on Friday in Florida.

Carter says in a release issued by the New York Mets and baseball's Hall of Fame that he will be examined again on Thursday at Duke Medical Center. He also asked for privacy Saturday as his family learns more about his medical condition.

The 11-time All-Star hit .262 with 324 homers and 1,225 RBIs in 19 seasons in the majors. He played his last game with the Montreal Expos in 1992 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003.
