Astros' Chris Carter replaces Evan Gattis at DH

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(1:30 pm ET) Astros DH Evan Gattis is not listed in the team's starting lineup for Saturday's game at Oakland. After 11 straight starts at DH, Gattis heads to the bench, replaced at DH by first baseman Chris Carter

Marwin Gonzalez gets his third start of the year at first base, batting eighth in the lineup. 

The Astros are +105 money line underdogs at Oakland. 

Astros' Chris Carter slugs first home run Wednesday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/23/15) Astros first baseman Chris Carter showed signs of coming out of his early-season funk Wednesday, going 2 for 4 with his first home run of the season in his team's 3-2 loss to the Mariners.

"I finally got a couple hits and got the first [homer] out of the way," Carter said after the game, per MLB.com. "In that situation [in the eighth], that's a game-changing situation. I've got to come up with something there instead of striking out."

Carter was just 3 for 42 entering play Tuesday but is 3 for 7 with two walks, one home run and two RBI in his last two games.

"He swung the bat very well today," manager A.J. Hinch said Wednesday. "The base hit early in the game, the home run late. He's going to contribute. Obviously, it's going to take a while for things to even out for him. Chris Carter will be a productive player for us."

Carter will look to build on his recent success when the Astros open a three-game series in Oakland against the A's Friday.

Astros to sit Chris Carter, start Marwin Gonzalez at 1B on Monday

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/20/15) With the recent struggles of Chris Carter, the Astros will start Marwin Gonzalez at first base and bat him seventh on Monday in Seattle. 

This is the third start of the year for Gonzalez, second at first base. 

In 10 at-bats this season, Gonzalez is 3 for 10 with a homer and a double.

Carter has begun the year 3 for 40 (.075 avg.) with no extra-base hits and has struck out 17 times.

"He's frustrated to the extent no one likes to get outs, but we're still at the very early stages, and he's done this before and come out of it," manager A.J. Hinch said, per MLB.com. "We believe he's going to be fine."

Astros' Chris Carter looking for first HR after dismal two weeks

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/20/15) Astros first baseman Chris Carter has struggled heavily during the first two weeks of the season, going 3 for 40 with no extra-base hits and striking out 17 times.

Carter has drawn four walks and scored one run but has managed just a .075/.159/.075 line. The righty slugger, who is prone to hitless stretches, could be on the verge of turning things around offensively, as the Astros are scheduled to face three lefty starters in a four-game span starting Wednesday. He has hit much better against lefties in 2014, posting a .244/.350/.519 line with 10 home runs in 135 at-bats.

Carter has also delivered quality career numbers at Safeco Field, where he's opening a three-game series Monday. The first baseman has hit .284/.370/.547 with seven home runs and 18 RBI in 95 at-bats against the Mariners on the road.

Astros first baseman Chris Carter just 1 for 19 to start season

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/13/15) Astros first baseman Chris Carter is still trying to find his way at the plate to begin the season. Manager A.J. Hinch doesn't think it's a big enough issue to bring it up to him yet, reports the Houston Chronicle.

"I like that we've been able to keep our head above water a little bit without that kind of production," Hinch said. "To sort of hold serve – or whatever analogy I can use – is important for us to stay afloat while those guys are getting themselves on track."

Carter is just 1 for 19 to begin the season, but he thinks some of his outs could have gone either way.

"I hit some balls hard that were caught," Carter said. "It could go either way, so that's the difference of a few hits here and there."
