Gary Carter's health has taken a turn for the worse.

The Hall of Fame catcher, diagnosed last May with a malignant brain tumor, received results of his latest MRI exam Thursday, according to the online journal of his daughter, Kimmy Bloomers.

She writes "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."

Carter had the MRIs Friday in North Palm Beach, Fla., and they were sent to his doctors at Duke University for evaluation.

A day earlier, he fell at a doctor's appointment and completely tore a rotator cuff, Bloomers wrote, adding that he also fell on Christmas Eve.
