Latest Update Matt Carpenter and Matt Adams have returned to the Cardinals starting lineup on Monday. Mon Sep, 22, 03:36 PM
A very good hitter with patience and the ability to get on base consistently with either walks or base hits. A doubles machine, he is versatile enough to play several different positions.
Flaws: : Took some time finding his everyday position at the major league level. Also, his power doesn't really stand out, especially at third base, nor does his base-stealing ability.
Both players were suffering from an illness and had been out of the lineup bot are returning here for the final week as the Cardinals look to lock up the NL Central and head to the playoffs. Both a viable fantasy options.Analyst: Howard Bender
Carpenter is now slashing .275/.375/.382 with seven home runs, 55 RBI and 91 runs scored for the Cardinals, which is a far cry form his breakout 2013 campaign. However, he has still managed to dominate the runs scored category while chipping in around the other areas, so he should remain a steady starter the rest of the regular season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Carpenter hasn't had a day off since June 17, so with rosters expanding, he'll get a breather here. Daniel Descalso will fill in at third base Monday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Carpenter has dual eligibility which is a nice plus for fantasy owners. While his numbers have regressed he still has quality stats that deem him as an everyday starter in your line up.Analyst: Colby Conway
