  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Idle against lefty

    Carpenter isn't starting Sunday against the Athletics. The lefty-hitting Carpenter will take a seat with fellow lefty JP Sears on the mound for the A's. Matt Vierling will move to right field while Carpenter rests, allowing Tyler Nevin to start at the hot corner.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Steals another base

The 26-year-old outfielder showcased his speed Thursday, legging out an infield single and swiping second base before scoring on a Tyler Nevin double.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Doubles, reaches four times in win

    Carpenter went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 10-0 win over the White Sox. The Tigers rolled all over Chicago, and Carpenter was right in the middle of the action. The outfielder has had a breakout season with a .289 batting average, .876 OPS and 20 home runs across 93 games. He's been even better over his last dozen appearances, batting .341 with a .931 OPS.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Possible waiver wire pickups

    The Tigers' decision to play him against lefties as well as righties about a month ago was your first warning. Now, Carpenter's power is beginning to show up even at spacious Comerica Park, where he just homered twice during a three-game series against the Cubs. If you're still doubting him -- a guy who homered 36 times between the majors and minors last year -- it's time to get with the program. By now, the full-season numbers pretty much speak for themselves, but nine of his home runs have come in his past 17 games. Truth be told, you've already missed the boat in five-outfielder leagues, but he remains out there in plenty of three-outfielder leagues, which is the more common format on our platform.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Keeps slugging Wednesday

    Carpenter went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Cubs. Carpenter didn't hit a home run Tuesday, but he made up for that in a big way Wednesday, providing all of Detroit's offense. The outfielder has now gone deep in four of the last five games, and he has nine home runs this month overall in 21 contests. The power surge has allowed Carpenter to reach the 20-homer plateau for the first time in his career, and he is showing no signs of slowing down.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Goes deep for third straight game

    Carpenter went 3-for-5 with a double, a solo home run and two runs scored in Monday's 7-6 loss to the Cubs. Carpenter has been on a power surge recently, as he now has eight home runs this month across 19 games, including in each of the last three contests. That's pushed the outfielder to 19 total long balls this season, which is a new career high. Carpenter has claimed an everyday role in the middle of the Tigers' lineup and could push for 25 homers if he stays healthy.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Homers in consecutive games

    Carpenter went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over Cleveland. Carpenter's solo shot in the seventh came on the 10th pitch of a battle that included five foul balls after beginning the at-bat down 0-2. Carpenter is now hitting .354 with seven home runs in the month of August and is establishing himself as a mainstay in the heart of the Tigers' lineup.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Hits 17th home run

    Carpenter went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Guardians. Carpenter got things started with a three-run home run in the first inning, his 17th of the season. The outfielder has been on a power surge lately, with five of those long balls coming over his last eight games. Carpenter has earned a regular role in the middle of Detroit's lineup with his strong performance so far this year, as he's now batting .281 with an .862 OPS.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Carpenter has been a fixture in the Waiver Wire column of late, and indeed, his roster rate is beginning to climb, rising from 18 to 51 percent in two weeks' time. He continues to live up to his end of the bargain, going 2 for 4 with a home run Wednesday to give him a .455 (20 for 44) batting average and five home runs in his past 12 games. It's worth noting that only four of his 16 home runs have come at home, and Spencer Torkelson, another of Wednesday's featured players, is also held back from playing half his games at a power-suppressing venue. But the overall line looks great for Carpenter, who hit 36 homers between the minors and majors last year. Now that he's playing against lefties as well as righties, he's worth a look even in three-outfielder leagues.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Pops 16th home run

    Carpenter went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Twins. Carpenter has been dialed in lately, as he's batting .412 over his last five games with four home runs. That's pushed the outfielder to 16 long balls for the season, which is 10 more than he had as a rookie last year. Carpenter has definitely taken a step forward after a promising debut in 2022, and he could be in line for an even bigger breakout in 2024.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Carpenter's stock continues to rise in Fantasy faster than his roster rate can keep up. With a three-homer weekend, including one off left-hander Chris Sale, he's up to 15 for the season and 21 in just 106 games as a major-leaguer (this after hitting 30 in 98 games as a minor-leaguer last year). The home run off a lefty is notable because he's now started against five of the past six the Tigers have faced, ending his platoon concerns from earlier in the year. He's striking out at just a 22 percent rate, which helps contribute to his 75th percentile xBA and 84th percentile xSLG. He's held back by his lineup and supporting cast, sure, but he's coming off a 34.5-point week and is now probably worth a look even in some three-outfielder leagues.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Goes yard twice in win

    Carpenter went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Red Sox. He got the Tigers on the board in the second inning by taking Brayan Bello deep before clubbing his second long ball in the eighth off Kyle Barraclough. Carpenter has gone yard three times in the last two days to extend his current hitting streak to nine games, a stretch in which he's batting a blistering .471 (16-for-34) with four homers, six RBI and 10 runs.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Goes deep Friday

    Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Red Sox. Detroit mustered only two hits against Chris Sale and a pair of Boston relievers, with Carpenter getting the lone extra-base knock. The outfielder is up to 13 home runs this year, including two over the last six games, a stretch in which he's sporting an elite 1.303 OPS. For the season, Carpenter has an .824 OPS, making him one of the few offensive threats for the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Possible waiver wire pickups

    When last we spoke of Carpenter, I pointed out that the power is indisputable at this point but that it's undermined by him having to sit against lefties. One of those things has changed recently. Indeed, Carpenter has started 16 straight games for the Tigers, including three against lefties. He's still confined to a bad lineup, but it's easier to buy into him as a Fantasy asset if he's playing every day. And he seems to be heating up, too, delivering his fifth straight multi-hit game Wednesday to give him a .550 (11 for 20) batting average during that stretch.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Goes yard as part of three-hit day

    Carpenter went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and three runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Rays. Carpenter put together his first three-hit effort since June 18 and had his first long ball since July 15. The blast came in the seventh of Jason Adam and was a 423-foot shot to center field. Carpenter now has a hit in three straight and has totaled six hits over that span. Carpenter raised his slash line to .265/.327/.473 and has an OPS of .800, which would all lead the team if he had enough at-bats to qualify.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Two hits, two RBI

    Carpenter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Monday's 5-1 win over the Giants. Carpenter delivered RBI singles in the third and fifth innings to help lead Detroit to the victory. The outfielder has been a pleasant surprise with an .830 OPS this season, and he's been locked in lately with a .314 average, three home runs and 11 RBI across his last 10 games. Carpenter should remain locked into a regular role as one of the Tigers' few offensive threats.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Sitting versus lefty

    Carpenter is absent from the lineup for Saturday's contest against the Padres. The Padres are starting rookie left-hander Jackson Wolf, so Carpenter is being given a day off. Miguel Cabrera is in the designated hitter spot and Zach McKinstry is playing right field.

  • Tigers' Kerry Carpenter: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Carpenter homered three times over the weekend, including twice on Saturday, and by now we should know to expect as much from him. He not only has 11 homers in 164 at-bats this year but also 15 in his last 213 at-bats dating back to last year. And it was 30 homers in 358 minor-league at-bats that punched his ticket to the majors. So why is he still available in 85 percent of CBS Sports leagues? Partly, it's because he hardly plays against left-handers, which limits his utility to five-outfielder leagues -- at least for as long as that arrangement lasts -- but even more, I think people are genuinely sleeping on him. He's sequestered in Detroit and spent much of this year on the IL with a sprained shoulder. Time to wake up.
