Matt Carpenter homers in win Monday

Matt Carpenter went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored in the Cardinals' 5-0 win over the Marlins on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

This ended a long homer drought for Carpenter, as he hadn't gone deep since June 4. The veteran infielder has yet to snap out of his season-long slump, and is still hitting just .227 with a .334 OBP on the year. He presents a high-risk buy low opportunity for owners looking to take a chance, as Carpenter still has the capability to bounce back into a stud.

Matt Carpenter drives in a run

Matt Carpenter went 1-for-3 with an RBI on Thursday against the Mets.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the RBI, Carpenter shows few signs of turning things around, as he is slashing just .221/.332/.381. If not for his enormous second half last year, Carpenter would be droppable in most formats. For now, however, owners need to continue to hold out hope for the rebound.

Matt Carpenter not in starting lineup Friday

Carpenter is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Carpenter was removed in the eighth inning of Thursday's game against the Reds. It wasn't immediately clear what the reason was for his removal on Thursday, and the same can be said about his absence from the lineup today. Jedd Gyorko will fill in for Carpenter at third base on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

It wasn't immediately clear why Carpenter was removed from the game; he had gone 1-for-4 with an RBI and three strikeouts up to that point. Expect an update later in the day.

Matt Carpenter crushes pinch-hit homer Thursday

Matt Carpenter went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit, solo home run in the Cardinals' 5-3 win over the Phillies on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Carpenter seems to be emerging from his early season slump, at least to some degree, as he has a .218/.332/.391 triple slash on the year. Five of his eight homers have come in May, and his OPS is more than 40 points in May compared to April. Carpenter should be able to recover and produce at a high level, but it's unlikely he'll replicate last year's numbers.
