Player Notes
Matt Carpenter went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

Advice: Carpenter took Anthony DeSclafani deep in the third inning for his 14th homer of the season. After a terrible stretch that saw his batting average drop to .252, Carpenter is hitting .264/.363/.454 with 54 RBI and 60 runs scored this year.

Matt Carpenter had another strong game from the leadoff spot Friday, going 2-for-4 with a homer, a double and a walk against the Rockies.

Advice: With the way it's worked out the last two days, it looks like we'll be seeing Carpenter batting first and Kolten Wong hitting third for the foreseeable future. It should help the fantasy value of both. Wong went 2-fo-r5 with two runs scored and an RBI tonight.

Moved back into the leadoff spot, Matt Carpenter went 4-for-5 with two homers, a double and four runs scored in the Cardinals' 9-8 win over the Rockies on Thursday.

Advice: The Cardinals scored three in the bottom of the ninth to win it, with a Greg Garcia bases-loaded walk ending the game. Carpenter turned in far and away his best game since April. He hadn't had even three hits since May 22. The Cards will probably keep him in the leadoff spot for now, but that might not be bad news for Kolten Wong; Wong hit third with Matt Holliday out tonight.

Thu, Jul 30 Rotoworld
Matt Carpenter went hitless again Tuesday, dropping his average to .252 on the year.

Advice: The third baseman went 0-for-4 and struck out twice against Reds starter Mike Leake, continuing his freefall since the end of May. Carpenter is now hitting .172 (15-for-87) with 19 strikeouts in July. He insists there's nothing physical going on, but there's certainly something wrong with the 29-year-old's swing right now.
