Despite entering the season with health woes and batting .155 in April, Carpenter then went scorched earth to hit .257/.374/.523 with a career-high 36 homers. It's dicey to bet on a 33-year-old coming off a career year, but he simply punishes baseball too severely to discredit. He led qualified hitters in hard-hit rate (49.0%) with the fifth-highest fly-ball rate (46.9%) and fourth-lowest popup rate (2.1%). Given his elite blend of hitting the ball hard, high, and far, Statcast's .535 XSLG and .386 xwOBA even offer room for growth. Expect more elite power in 2019.

Matt Carpenter scores twice

Matt Carpenter went 0-for-3 with two runs scored on Monday against the Braves.

Fantasy Impact

Carpenter is now at 103 runs scored, an outstanding total in what amounts to an MVP-caliber season. He's slumped in September, batting just .182 with no home runs, but with the Cardinals gunning for a Wild Card spot, he should continue to lead off and add value for the remainder of the season.
