Analysis: The Cardinals open a 10-game homestand Tuesday against the Blue Jays, and Carpenter is batting .167 with no extra-base hits in seven contests in St. Louis this season. He enjoys facing AL pitching, however, batting .367 with eight homers, 13 RBIs and 19 runs in 23 interleague games since the start of last season.

Analysis: The versatile infielder struggled during the season's first week but has turned it up since, hitting .321 over his nine games and homering in two of the past five. Carpenter rates as a strong play in Friday's matchup with the Brewers, as he's 19 for 41 (.463) with three homers lifetime against Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta.

Analysis: The injury was sustained after the 31-year-old All-Star was hit by a ground ball in Sunday's game against the New York Yankees, and he was a late scratch Monday. Carpenter is batting just .225 with one homer and four RBIs in 13 games this season.

Analysis: The three-time All-Star is still off to a slow start, hitting just .209 thus far and entering Friday's matchup with only two RBIs through his first nine games. Carpenter's track record says he'll bounce back and put up solid fantasy numbers in several categories before the year is out.

Analysis: Carpenter was back in the lineup after back stiffness kept him out of the starting lineup Tuesday. He's batting just .192 but has drawn seven walks.
Apr. 9 5:02 PM PT6:02 PM MT7:02 PM CT8:02 PM ET20:02 ET0:02 GMT8:02 5:02 PM MST7:02 PM EST7:32 PM VEN4:02 UAE (+1)7:02 PM CT-Carpenter singled and walked in Sunday's 8-0 loss to the Reds.
Analysis: Carpenter is off to a sluggish start to the season, going 3 for 20 with four walks. He is still seeking his first extra-base hit. The Cardinals visit the nation's capital on Monday, and Carpenter was just 4 for 22 with six strikeouts against Washington pitching in 2016.
Mar. 9 2:02 PM PT3:02 PM MT4:02 PM CT5:02 PM ET17:02 ET22:02 GMT6:02 3:02 PM MST5:02 PM EST5:32 PM VEN2:02 UAE (+1)4:02 PM CT-In the lineup for defensive purposes only - he's now the full-time first baseman - Carpenter batted ninth against Houston. He'd missed Grapefruit League games for more than a week because of his back problem and had been forced him to withdraw from the World Baseball Classic.
Analysis: Carpenter spent the past couple days hitting off a tee and expects to be cleared to take full swings in the batting cage by Monday. He figures he'll be ready to take unrestricted hacks in game by the beginning of next weekend.
