Latest Update Matt Carpenter went yard for the 6th time Fri Jul, 25, 09:43 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.
Another strong night for Carpenter who is swinging a hot bat once again. He's now 6-for-13 (.462) with two home runs, two RBI and three runs scored over his last three games. He's obviously not going to top last season's totals, but he's still going to finish the year ranked amongst the top second basemen out there....even though he's playing third this year. It's all about the eligibility, right?Analyst: Howard Bender
Another solid game for Carpenter who is batting .278 on the season. He hasn't been quite as consistent as he was last year, but he's been solid nonetheless. He remains one of the better options at second base.Analyst: David Kerr
Carpenter hasn't been producing at the level we had hoped in the first half of the season, but has managed to keep up a respectable pace to accompany his multi-position eligibility. He is now slashing .275/.369/.377 with four home runs and 31 RBI while taking 43 walks. Analyst: Matthew Beck
This will be just the second time Carpenter has been out of the lineup this season, so a well-deserved day of rest. It may also help snap him out of his 1-for-14 slump that he's currently in. Daniel Descalso will handle the work at third base Tuesday.Analyst: Howard Bender
