Is blessed with a huge frame. Patient, he has quick wrists and a fluid, short stroke that generates monster power. Has enough athleticism to play in the outfield, as well as first base.
Flaws: : Strikes out way too much, so he needs to start making more consistent contact in the big leagues. Also needs to keep refining his defensive fundamentals and find his niche.
Carter is now just one home run behind Nelson Cruz for the MLB lead. Carter is a great story, though his fantasy owners should be wary; Carter is very prone to cold streaks.Analyst: Steve Pimental
It's truly unbelievable what Carter continues to do. He isn't known for his average, but his power is definitely for real and has shown it quite well over the last six weeks. If he can hit another crazy hot streak, he could come close to 40 home runs on the year.Analyst: David Kerr
Cater is now slashing .286/.330/.631 with 10 home runs and 25 RBI in the month of August as he continues to be one one of the best power hitters since returning from the All-Star break. The Astros designated hitter now has 31 home runs on the season which is a new career-high for the slugger, which ranks him third in home runs while taking the seventh spot in slugging percentage in the American League (.509). Even if he was to slow down in the final month of the season, his power upside alone is enough reason to keep him in starting lineups moving forward. Analyst: Matthew Beck
While it's tough to put Carter's power on the bench, he's going to get some rest and hopefully think about those 13 strikeouts over his last five games. Dexter Fowler will serve as the DH for Sunday.Analyst: Howard Bender
