Matt Carpenter drives in seven runs to power Yankees victory Sunday

Matt Carpenter went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double, a walk, three runs scored and seven RBIs in New York’s 18-4 victory over the Cubs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Matt Carpenter drew the start at third base Sunday after not starting the previous seven games and delivered a vintage Matt Carpenter performance. The seven RBIs tied a career high and despite only two plate appearances since June 3, Carpenter was able to produce three extra base hits in the spot start. Carpenter will continue to have to battle for playing time in a healthy Yankees infield but when he starts he carries a ton of fantasy value in DFS lineups where you can pick and chose your spots with him.

Matt Carpenter hits fourth home run as Yankee in win Friday

Matt Carpenter went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored in New York’s 13-0 victory over Detroit on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Carpenter hit his fourth home run of the season and collected his first non-homer hit as a Yankee with his 4th inning single. Thru his first 19 at-bats for New York, Carpenter’s OPS is an off the charts 1.286 as fit in this lineup nicely and may have given the Yankees and his fantasy managers a mid-season golden waiver wire addition. It remains to be seen where he will used once Giancarlo Stanton returns and the Yankees further heal up. Even coming off the bench, Carpenter would make a great pinch hitter, and Boone will need to get creative to give him enough ABs to stay sharp.

Matt Carpenter smacks leadoff homer in Game 1 win Thursday

Matt Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in New York's 6-1 victory in Game 1 of Thursday's double header.

Fantasy Impact

Carpenter lead off the game with a solo shot off Shohei Ohtani as the culmination of an 11-pitch at-bat. Carpenter now has three hits as a Yankee and all three have left the park, joining Alfonso Soriano and teammate Kyle Higashioka as the only Yankees to hit homers for their first three hits. Carpenter has been endearing himself to Yankees fans since he donned the Pinstripes but with Giancarlo Stanton expected to return as soon as the weekend, Aaron Boone may have to get creative to continue finding ABs for Carpenter as the Yankees continue to get healthy.

Matt Carpenter homers again in win Tuesday

Matt Carpenter went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs in New York’s 9-1 win against the Angels on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Carpenter hit his second home run as a Yankee, lifting one into the seats in right field in his first Yankee Stadium at-bat in pinstripes. Carpenter only has two hits in 13 at-bats since joining the Yankees but both have left the park. Carpenter provides a veteran presence with all the Yankee injuries and a bat that can help them the rest of the season which is exactly why Yankees GM Brian Cashman was so high on bringing in the former Cardinal.

Matt Carpenter hits first homer as Yankee in win Friday

Matt Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in New York's 2-0 win against Tampa on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Matt Carpenter went deep for his first time as a member of the Yankees on Friday night. It was his first of the season and his first hit for New York in two games since being signed on Thursday. Carpenter DH'd again on Friday and his presence has added another patient, professional hitter to a Yankees lineup that has continued to produce in spite of all of their recent injuries and illnesses.
