Top Matt Carpenter News

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Won't need surgery

    Carpenter won't require surgery on his broken foot, though he'll still be returning very late in the regular season if he makes it back at all, Marly Rivera of reports.

    Carpenter recently visited a second foot specialist, whose diagnosis aligned with what the Yankee had previously heard. He'll avoid weight-bearing activities for two weeks, at which point he'll be re-evaluated.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Hopeful to return

    Carpenter said Wednesday that he "feels good" following an examination of his fractured left foot, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    After fouling a ball off his left foot Monday, a doctor's examination left Carpenter feeling encouraged about a potential return later this season. He won't need to undergo surgery and has a timeline of between six and eight weeks, which lines up right with the start of the postseason.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Sent to injured list

    The Yankees placed Carpenter (foot) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

    Carpenter's move to the IL was a foregone conclusion after the Yankees announced he suffered a fractured left foot in Monday's win over the Mariners. A timeline hasn't yet been established for Carpenter's return and will likely be contingent on whether he needs to undergo surgery to address the injury. Regardless, Carpenter looks to be at risk of missing most, if not all, of what's left of the 2022 season, making him a drop candidate in leagues where he's been rostered. Miguel Andujar was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to replace Carpenter, who has hit .305 with 15 home runs, 37 RBI and 28 runs in 47 games after joining the Yankees in late May.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Fractures foot, out indefinitely

    Carpenter was diagnosed with a broken left foot after leaving Monday's game against Seattle, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

    The injury is a devastating one for Carpenter, who had enjoyed a resurgence since joining the Yankees in late May while emerging as one of the team's top hitters. The Yankees likely won't have a timeline for Carpenter's return until a determination is made on whether or not he'll need surgery, but even if he's able to treat the fractured foot through rest and rehab, a trip to the injured list is all but guaranteed at this point.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Exits game early

    Carpenter was removed from Monday's game against the Mariners due to an apparent foot injury, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Carpenter fouled a ball off his back foot during his first at-bat of the game, and while he was able to remain int he contest temporarily, Tim Locastro was tapped to pinch hit in the top of the third. Carpenter will be considered day-to-day until further notice.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Not starting Monday

    Carpenter isn't starting Monday against the Mariners.

    Carpenter has started against just five left-handed pitchers this year and is getting a breather with southpaw Marco Gonzales on the mound for Seattle. Aaron Judge is shifting to right field while Aaron Hicks starts in center.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Slugs 15th homer

    Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in an 8-2 win against Kansas City on Saturday.

    Carpenter made his first start in three games and came through with a solo shot to right field in the seventh inning. The homer was his 15th in only 40 games with the Yankees, and he's slashing an impressive .311/.425/.792 over that span. Despite the impressive numbers, Carpenter's playing time could take a hit with New York's acquisition of Andrew Benintendi, though the former is versatile enough to still carve out enough playing time to make an impact.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Remains on bench Friday

    Carpenter isn't in the lineup Friday against Kansas City.

    Carpenter is on the bench for a second consecutive matchup after going 3-for-16 with a homer, two runs, an RBI, a walk and six strikeouts over the last five games. Andrew Benintendi, Aaron Hicks and Aaron Judge are starting in the outfield from left to right.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Sits out Thursday

    Carpenter is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals.

    Carpenter went 3-for-15 with a solo home run and a walk while starting each of the last four games in right field, and though it's Joey Gallo who will replace him in the lineup Thursday, the acquisition of Andrew Benintendi is more likely to dampen Carpenter's playing-time outlook moving forward. Giancarlo Stanton's (Achilles) recent move to the injured list temporarily alleviates the logjam in the corner outfield and at designated hitter, but once Stanton is healthy, the likes of Carpenter, Aaron Hicks and Gallo could all see their opportunities take a hit.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Steps in as Stanton replacement

    Carpenter will start in right field and bat fifth in Wednesday's game against the Mets.

    He'll man right field for the fourth game in a row and should serve as the primary option at the position following Giancarlo Stanton's (Achilles) placement on the 10-day injured list Tuesday. Carpenter has been cold out of the All-Star break with a 2-for-18 showing at the plate, but he's still holding down a monstrous 1.221 OPS through 118 plate appearances on the season.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Swats another homer

    Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a loss to the Orioles on Saturday.

    Carpenter's second-inning long ball gave the Yankees a 2-0 lead and pushed his total to 14 homers on the campaign. Incredibly, he's reached that number in only 89 at-bats. Among players with at least 100 plate appearances, Carpenter's 38.9 HR/FB is tops in the majors.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Continues to mash with seven RBI

    Carpenter went 2-for-4 with two home runs, a walk, three total runs and seven total RBI in Saturday's 14-1 rout over the Red Sox.

    Boston took an early 1-0 lead, but Carpenter erased that with his three-run shot to right field in the first inning. The veteran connected on another three-run shot in the fifth, and he closed his ledger by drawing a bases-loaded walk in the eighth. It's been a remarkable resurgence for Carpenter this season -- he's slashing an incredible .360/.473/.933 with 13 homers, 31 RBI and 22 runs over just 92 plate appearances. Per ESPN, Carpenter is the fifth player in the expansion era to notch an OPS of at least 1.400 through his first 30 games of the season with a minimum of 90 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Slugs 11th homer

    Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a walk, a two-run home run and two runs scored Thursday against Cincinnati.

    Carpenter took Reiver Sanmartin yard in the 10th inning to tally his 11th homer of the season. After a brief power slump in late June, Carpenter now has five long balls in eight July starts while also driving in 11 and scoring seven runs in that span. Carpenter owns a .338/.451/.868 line across 83 plate appearances since joining the Yankees in late May.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Six-game starting streak ends

    Carpenter is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds.

    Since joining the Yankees in late May, Carpenter has turned in a monstrous 1.306 OPS in 77 plate appearances, which has allowed him to push for more playing time in an already crowded lineup. Even with American League MVP candidate Aaron Judge taking a seat Tuesday, the Yankees won't have room for Carpenter in the starting nine. Carpenter will hit the bench after starts in each of the past six games between designated hitter, left field and right.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Bat remains scorching

    Carpenter went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, an additional run and a walk in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Though Sunday wasn't a great day from a team standpoint for the Yankees, Carpenter continued to impress with his third straight multi-hit performance. The veteran has gone 7-for-9 with two walks, two homers and four RBI over that stretch, and his season slash line now stands at an eye-popping .344/.447/.859 with 10 homers and 22 RBI over 77 plate appearances. He was rarely getting into the starting lineup near the end of June, but manager Aaron Boone has found a way to get his bat into the starting nine nearly every day in July, so Carpenter should be rostered in most fantasy leagues for as long as he remains hot.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Homers among three hits

    Carpenter went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, two total runs and two total RBI in a 12-5 victory versus the Red Sox on Friday.

    Carpenter once again took advantage of his opportunity to start, belting a run-scoring double in the second inning and a solo homer to right field in the fourth. The veteran has gone deep nine times and produced 20 RBI in only 70 plate appearances this season, and he's put together an impressive .305/.406/.814 slash line. Of note, Carpenter started in left field Friday -- per Marly Rivera of, it was his first start at that position since 2012. He's also played right field on two occasions this season. The positional versatility should allow manager Aaron Boone to get his bat in the lineup more frequently.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Slugs two homers Saturday

    Carpenter went 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs and four RBI in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against Cleveland.

    Prior to Saturday, Carpenter hadn't started a game since June 22, but he was in the lineup for the first game of the twin bill. The veteran took advantage of the opportunity, going deep in each of the sixth and ninth innings and producing a run-scoring single in the seventh. Though Carpenter's route to playing time remains complicated, he's been great for the Yankees when called upon this season, slashing .293/.420/.902 with eight homers and 17 RBI over 51 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Dominant against Cubs

    Carpenter went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double, seven RBI, three runs and a walk in Sunday's 18-4 win over the Cubs.

    Carpenter didn't start in any of the seven games leading up to Sunday's matchup, but he drew the start at third base in the series finale against the Cubs and led the team's offense with three extra-base hits during the blowout win. The 36-year-old will likely still face an uphill battle for playing time since the Yankees have plenty of infield depth, but it was encouraging to see a glimpse of dominance from the veteran.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Fades into reserve role

    Carpenter is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Minnesota, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

    Carpenter started in six of his first eight games with the Yankees after signing with the team May 26, but he'll find himself on the bench for the fourth game in a row. The Yankees don't have an everyday role available for him now that Giancarlo Stanton and Josh Donaldson have recently returned from the injured list, so Carpenter will have to settle for the occasional spot start or pinch-hitting opportunity moving forward.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Slugs third homer

    Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Angels.

    Carpenter led off the bottom of the first inning with his third home run of the season -- each of which has come since he joined the Yankees on May 26. While he's had a more powerful impact than anticipated, it is worth noting that the long balls are his only three hits across 16 at-bats. Carpenter is also likely to find playing more difficult to come by if Giancarlo Stanton (ankle) is activated Saturday as expected.
