Carter is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets. Carter tallied three home runs and nine RBI over his last eight games, but he also struck out 11 times over his last four contests, so manager Craig Counsell decided it was time for a day off. Ramon Flores will get the start at first base in Carter's place.
Carter was 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in a losing effort against the Mets on Friday night. His two-run shot in the first inning put the Brewers in front, but that was all the offense they could muster. While his batting average (.247) is not a fantasy asset, his 13 home runs and 31 RBI hitting in the middle of the Milwaukee lineup are certainly useful.
Carter went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double, one run and two RBI Sunday against the Padres. Carter's 11th bomb of the year gave the Brewers an early lead in a game they'd go on to win. Although it was his first homer in 10 games, he has six bombs this month, and his slugging percentage is at .592.
Carter is not in the lineup Saturday against the Padres. Carter will get the day off Saturday, as the Brewers go with Jonathan Lucroy at first base, while Martin Maldonado steps in behind the plate. Carter has struggled of late, going hitless in his last six games (20 at-bats).
Carter went 2-for-4 in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Reds. The veteran slugger stayed hot despite his team's overall struggles, hitting safely for the fifth time in the last six games. Carter has also seen a power explosion this month, blasting half of his 10 homers on the season in the first six contests of May. He's slashing .283/.345/.687 on the season.
