Latest News
Chris Carter goes deep twice Tuesday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/9/14) Astros designated hitter Chris Carter's power surge continued Tuesday, as he clubbed two more home runs in an 8-3 win over the Rangers.

Carter went 2 for 4 in the game, with each of his hits leaving the yard for a solo home run in the win. Carter now has 17 home runs overall, including four in his last four games, with seven RBI in that span.  

Carter is hitting .194/.274/.446 in 258 at-bats on the season. 

Chris Carter hits grand slam in loss
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/6/14) Astros designated hitter Chris Carter blasted his second career grand slam in Saturday's 11-5 loss to the Angels. Carter's 403-foot shot to center in the third inning was his 15th homer of the season and gave him 35 RBI.

Carter also homered Friday, but is hitting just .189/.270/.426 on the year.

Chris Carter sitting Friday against Tigers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/14) Astros designated hitter Chris Carter, whose brief hot streak has been followed by a massive slump, is grabbing some pine for the Friday night game visiting Detroit. Jesus Guzman is set to start instead.

Carter hit four home runs in three games earlier this month, but hasn't blasted off since and has just three hits in his last 30 at-bats to lower his average to .187.

Chris Carter swats walkoff shot in extras
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/13/14) Astros designated hitter Chris Carter played the role of a hero Thursday night in extras against the Diamondbacks.

Carter belted a walkoff solo home run in the 11th inning off J.J. Putz. He finished 1 for 5 with one run scored and one RBI in a 5-4 victory. He is hitting .199 with 13 homers and 30 RBI in 196 at-bats.
Power surge not enough to redeem Chris Carter
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/14) Chris Carter's two homers Wednesday give him six in his last 13 games, which would normally be a good thing. But not when those homers are six of only eight hits during that stretch, accounting for a .229 (8 for 35) batting average.

Carter has become the game's preeminent all-or-nothing hitter. He swings hard and usually misses, but when he gets a hold of one, it goes a long way. He hit .223 with 29 home runs last year, and the way things are shaping up this year, that may be the best-case scenario for him.

So what is that player worth in Fantasy? In Head-to-Head leagues -- at least ones of standard size -- close to nothing. When he's cold, he's positively useless, and taking a zero (or maybe 5-10, given his above-average walk rate) from a player for weeks at a time is one way to pile up losses. Even in Rotisserie leagues, it takes a special set of circumstances to use him. You need to be firmly committed to him, sticking with him through all the miserable weeks so you don't miss out on stretches like this one, and willing to take your lumps in batting average.

I know home runs are rare these days, but not enough for all that.
