Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter takes a seat with Sale on the mound
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter is getting the day off and is being held out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the White Sox. Carpenter had started five straight games, collecting just three hits in 21 at-bats over that span.

And, with a .222 batting average against left-handers this season, Carpenter will be shielded from one of the finest southpaws in the game, Chris Sale, who is starting on Tuesday.

Mark Reynolds is handling the hot corner while Xavier Scruggs handles first base on Tuesday.

Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter (back) sitting Tuesday at Miami
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter has arrived at the ballpark for 30 straight games and has seen his name on the lineup card every time.

But not Tuesday in Miami.

Carpenter is getting a rare break with Mark Reynolds set to play the spot instead. Manager Mike Matheny said he was looking to rest Carpenter, and the decision was made easier when Carpenter arrived to the ballpark dealing with mid-back tightness, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The former has been struggling a bit in June. He is batting .200 (9-for-45) over the last 15 games.

Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter: Kershaw didn't hit me on purpose
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

When you've been plunked by a Clayton Kershaw fastball, you've been seriously plunked. But Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter doesn't believe the Dodgers left-hander hit him on purpose Saturday.

That theory was considered by some because Carpenter has played a role in beating Kershaw in a couple playoff games, but he dismissed it.

"I was thinking about that yesterday," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "But I don't think he's the kind of guy who would hit me on purpose. He'd already come inside once during the at-bat. Then he threw a slider and curveball away. ... So, no. It was just one of those deals."

Carpenter, who was back in the lineup Sunday, said that the swelling on his right triceps had been reduced considerably. He added that he was still stiff, but felt "way better."
