      Chris Carter continues power surge with fifth HR in past nine games

      Astrosfirst baseman Chris Carter went 1 for 3 with a three-run homer and a walk in a 7-6 win over Seattle on Wednesday. Carter appears to be getting hot, as he has five homers in his past nine games. This is when the Astros need a hot stretch, but it won't salvage his season. Carter is batting .196, but he does have 24 home runs in 378 at-bats. He simply can't stick around the majors batting below .200, and he'll need to fix that in the offseason if he wants an everyday job next season.

      Astros DH Chris Carter hits solo home run in loss to Athletics

      Astros designated hitter Chris Carter went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in a 4-3 loss to Oakland on Friday. It's been a rough year for Carter, as he's hitting just .186. The power is not dreadful though, as he has 19 home runs and 55 RBI to go along with a .299 OBP. Carter has lost almost all of his mixed-league relevancy and his value is limited to AL-only formats at this juncture. With only 15 appearances recording at least two at-bats over the last two months, he's even losing value in the most shallow of formats.
