Player Outlook
Matt Carpenter had a resurgence in the Bronx in 2022 with 15 homers in 47 games, but he was unable to replicate those numbers in San Diego last year. The veteran slugger played in 76 contests for the Friars and had a .176/.322/.319 slash line and just five home runs, with a 17.9 percent walk rate being the only real positive. Carpenter was then traded to Atlanta in November and subsequently released. The 38-year-old has a sub-.650 OPS in three of the past four seasons and seems unlikely to have another resurgence in him.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Likely to lose playing time

    Carpenter is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals. Carpenter will hit the bench for a sixth consecutive game, with the Cardinals having faced left-handed pitchers in each of the last five contests. Though he had been seeing steady opportunities against right-handed pitching lately, the 38-year-old Carpenter will likely find himself on the bench more frequently after the Cardinals reinstated Lars Nootbaar (oblique) from the 10-day injured list Monday. With Nootbaar expected to take back an everyday role in right field, Alec Burleson should replace Carpenter as the Cardinals' primary designated hitter.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Sitting again versus lefty

    Carpenter is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals. The lefty-hitting Carpenter finds himself on the bench for the fifth game in a row while the Cardinals have opposed four consecutive left-handed starting pitchers. With Carpenter riding the pine, Willson Contreras will get a day off from catching and will serve as St. Louis' designated hitter while Pedro Pages settles in behind the dish.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Hitting bench in series finale

    Carpenter is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds. Carpenter had gone 3-for-6 with a double, a walk, two runs and two RBI while starting in each of the Cardinals' previous three matchups versus righties, but he'll take a seat Sunday even as Cincinnati brings righty Hunter Greene to the mound. Though the Cardinals still seem to view Carpenter as their primary designated hitter against righties, he'll head to the bench any time manager Oliver Marmol wants to give one his other everyday players a day out of the field. Willson Contreras will cede catching duties to Pedro Pages on Sunday while he replaces Carpenter at DH.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Not starting against southpaw

    Carpenter isn't in the Cardinals' lineup for Thursday's game versus the Reds, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. St. Louis will match up against left-handed starter Andrew Abbott on Thursday, so the lefty-hitting Carpenter will step out of the lineup. Willson Contreras will take over as the DH while Pedro Pages starts at catcher and bats ninth.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Sitting during nightcap

    Carpenter isn't in the Cardinals' lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against Atlanta.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Playing time trending up

    Carpenter will serve as the Cardinals' designated hitter and No. 7 batter in Monday's game against Atlanta. After he was excluded from the lineup for a stretch of six consecutive games from June 12 through 17 while the Cardinals faced four lefty starters and handed starts to Nolan Arenado and Masyn Winn at DH in the other two matchups with righties, Carpenter will now get his sixth start in a row. He's earned a more stable spot in the lineup against righties after going 6-for-16 with a double and a walk over the previous five games. The lefty-hitting Carpenter should continue to sit regularly versus lefties, however.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Losing out on DH starts

    Carpenter is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs, John Denton of MLB.com reports. The lefty-hitting Carpenter finds himself on the bench for the fifth game in a row, with St. Louis having faced three lefties and two righties during that stretch. Though he appeared headed for a regular role at DH versus righties after Lars Nootbaar (oblique) was placed on the injured list May 31, Carpenter seems to have fallen out of favor after mustering a .130/.200/.261 slash line through his first eight games of June. The Cardinals may just prefer to rotate a number of regulars at the DH spot rather than settling on a primary option.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Not in St. Louis lineup

    Carpenter is absent from the lineup for Thursday's game against the Pirates. Carpenter has been seeing most of the starts in the designated-hitter spot for the Cardinals versus righties since Lars Nootbaar (oblique) went on the injured list, resulting in Alec Burleson playing regularly in right field. However, Carpenter will begin Thursday's contest on the bench against right-hander Mitch Keller. Nolan Arenado will serve as St. Louis' DH while Jose Fermin replaces Arenado at third base.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Clubs homer in loss

    Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Rockies. Carpenter got the Cardinals back within a run with his seventh-inning blast, but they couldn't build on it. Both of his homers this season have come over his last nine games. The designated hitter is at a .200/.294/.317 slash line with five RBI, six runs scored, one double and no stolen bases through 68 plate appearances. Carpenter has seen steadier playing time at designated hitter with Alec Burleson filling in as an outfielder due to the absence of Lars Nootbaar (oblique).

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Getting regular at-bats versus RHPs

    Carpenter will serve as the Cardinals' designated hitter and No. 8 batter in Monday's game against the Astros. Carpenter has now been included in the lineup in four straight matchups with right-handed pitchers and could settle in as St. Louis' primary DH due to Lars Nootbaar's oblique injury opening up more opportunities in right field for Alec Burleson. Since returning from the injured list May 11 after missing more than five weeks of action with an oblique injury of his own, Carpenter has slashed .176/.300/.294 over 11 games.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Hits first homer of season

    Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Reds. The long ball was Carpenter's first of the campaign, as he took Frankie Montas deep in the third inning. Playing time has been generally sporadic for Carpenter since he returned from an oblique injury, as Alec Burleson's strong hitting has made him a priority to be in the lineup. Carpenter is batting .250 with four RBI, four runs scored and a 5:13 BB:K over 42 plate appearances as an option at designated hitter.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Activated Saturday

Jose Fermin had been leading off against lefties, but with the Cardinals set to face three right-handed starters in a row, Fermin was sent to Triple-A Memphis, and the lefty-hitting Carpenter was added to the active roster. The 38-year-old designated hitter went 3-for-10 with a run scored in three games before getting injured April 1.

Out since early April with a right oblique strain, Carpenter has gone 4-for-17 with two homers in his first five rehab contests. Upon his activation, Carpenter could see some starts at designated hitter versus righties for an offense that's desperately looking for a spark.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Could remain out until next week

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Tuesday that Carpenter's (oblique) rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis could be extended through the weekend, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Carpenter had a couple potential rehab games with Double-A Springfield rained out, so the team would like to see him make up for that lost time. Barring a setback, Carpenter could be activated from the 10-day injured list early next week, when the Cardinals are on the road playing the Angels.

  • Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Moves rehab to Memphis

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Carpenter (oblique) will shift his rehab assignment to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday, John Denton of MLB.com reports.
