Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Clubs 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Cardinals' 5-0 victory over the Cubs on Sunday.

That's two long balls in three games for Carpenter, who seems to finally be putting together a sustained stretch of production coming off a brutal start to the season. The homer was his 10th of the year, and his .232/.332/.433 slash line - while still lagging substantially behind his usual standards - is at least starting to look more like the player we've come to expect over the past few seasons.

Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Homers, knocks in two Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter went 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk and two RBI in Friday's loss to the Cubs.

Carpenter hit a solo home run -- his ninth of the year -- off Jon Lester in the sixth, and later slashed an RBI single off reliever Anthony Bass in the seventh. This was Carpenter's third multi-hit performance in his last five games, bringing his line to .237/.340/.433 on the year. The 32-year-old had an incredibly slow start to the year (hitting below .200 up until May 20) but he's steadily gotten more hits to fall over the past month.

Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Rediscovering power stroke
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter, who went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs in a win over the Reds on Saturday, has five of his homers on the season over his last 18 games entering Sunday.

Carpenter began to awaken offensively a few games prior to that stretch, but he'd still come into a May 21 game against the Royals having left the yard on just three occasions over his first 162 plate appearances (40 games), despite a 44.7 percent hard contact rate. He's managed to boost that already impressive number even further to 54.5 percent over the aforementioned 18-game span, and just as important, he's increased his flyball rate 12.5 points to 56.6 percent. The combination of the two has helped lead to the power surge, and it's also boosted Carpenter's season slugging percentage from a middling .351 to .433.

Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: On base three times Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter went 1-for-2 with an RBI single, three walks and a run in an extra-innings win over the Reds on Friday.

Carpenter now has a four-game hitting streak, and he's hit safely in 11 of his last 14 games overall. The veteran has slashed .341/.414/.591 over the 99 plate appearances spanning his last 22 games, and he's boosted his season on-base percentage 42 points to .339 over that stretch.
