Matt Carpenter slugs fourth home run of the season on Monday

Matt Carpenter went 1-4 with a solo home run and one strikeout as the Cardinals lost to the Royals 4-1 on Monday. Carpenter hit a mammoth 439 foot home run off Royals starter Carlos Hernandez to get the Cardinals on the board in the second inning but that was the extent of their offense for the night. They fell to 26-25 on the season and are tied with the Cincinnati Reds for Second Place in the NL Central despite playing four fewer games.

Fantasy Impact

Carpenter is slashing .188/.320/.320 in 124 at-bats for the Cardinals this season. Owners in standard 12-team redraft leagues can leave him on the Waiver Wire.

Matt Carpenter 2-4 with a home run and single in win Saturday

Matt Carpenter hit his fourth home run of the season as the Cardinals beat the Reds 7-1 on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Carpenter is slashing .204/.366/.337 in 98 at-bats this season. Carpenter's elite walk rate 16.8% (t-10th in MLB) has propelled him to being a more useful real-life baseball player than fantasy player. Owners in 12-team standard redraft leagues can leave him on the Waiver Wire.

Matt Carpenter homers, strikes out twice in three at-bats Friday

Matt Carpenter supplied all of the Cardinals offense with a solo home run off Yu Darvish in the sixth inning on Friday. The home run was Carpenters second of the year. The Cardinals lost the game 4-1 and are now 14-15 on the season.

Fantasy Impact

Carpenter is slashing .181/.340/.289 in 83 at-bats for the Cardinals this season. Carpenter's 28.3% Hard Hit % is 11th percentile in all of MLB. At this point it is fair to wonder how much longer Carpenter will get regular at-bats while the Cardinals chase down a wild-card spot. Owners in 12-team standard redraft leagues can leave him on the Waiver Wire.

Matt Carpenter walks once, leaves four runners on base in loss to Indians

Matt Carpenter, hitting fifth, was 0-3 in three at bats in the 14-2 loss against the Indians on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Carpenter is batting .190 in 63 at-bats this season. Fantasy owners might remember the Carpenter who slugged 36 home runs in 2018 and be tempted to pick him up but it doesn't look like the 34 year-old will be returning to 2018 form any time soon. Owners in 12-team redraft leagues can leave him on the waiver wire
