Astros first baseman Chris Carter crushes sixth home run of the year
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Astros first baseman Chris Carter went 1 for 4 at the plate in Houston's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.
Carter, who also struck out three times, ripped a three-run home run off of Jeff Francis in the sixth inning, his sixth of the season.
"We need (Carter) to be productive," manager A.J. Hinch said to the Houston Chronicle. "Unfortunately in baseball when you look at averages and you look and the season as a whole it might look ugly for him for a while.
"It's taken (Carter) a lot of at-bats to get into this range numbers wise in terms of batting average, on-base percentage, things like that. So if you can really evaluate based on quality plate appearances, you're starting to see two out of four, three out of four. We'd like to get four out of four out of him on a nightly basis rather than look at the whole season, see that his numbers are down and then come to a conclusion that way."
Carter is now hitting .158 with 16 RBI in 119 at-bats this season. He has also struck out 54 times in 35 games this season.
Astros first baseman Chris Carter cracks fifth home run of 2015
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/10/15) Astros first baseman Chris Carter went 1 for 4 at the plate in Houston's 6-5 win over the Angels on Saturday.
Carter did his damage in the second inning when he ripped a 1-0 pitch from Matt Shoemaker over the right field wall for a two-run shot, his fifth of the season.
Carter, who also struck out twice, is now hitting .155 with 12 RBI in 103 at-bats this season.
Astros 1B Chris Carter homers in loss to Rangers
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/7/15) Astros first baseman Chris Carter recorded his fourth home run of the season in Wednesday's 11-3 loss to the Rangers.
Carter crushed a two-run homer over the right field wall in the bottom of the ninth inning. The home run scored Luis Valbuena. Carter finished the game 1 for 3 and also drew a walk. He's now hitting .152/.257/.293 for the season.
|2014 summary: Chris Carter was the Astros' primary designated hitter from the start last season, but his sluggish production led to occasional benchings through the first three months. Carter's power was evident, but heading into July he had just 30 hits that weren't home runs. As hit bat heated up in July, Carter virtually became an everyday player, and over the season's final three months, he batted .264 with 24 home runs. The 27-year-old finished as the Astros' team leader in home runs (37) and RBI (88).|
Playing time status: Carter may sit the occasional game in National League parks, but aside from that, he figures to be in the Astros' lineup on a daily basis.
2015 outlook: Even with a strong second half showing, Carter didn't crack the top 15 among first basemen in points leagues, but he just fell short of the top 10 in Rotisserie value. Carter won't have first-base eligibility to begin the season, but it would be an upset if he didn't gain it by midseason. Given how often he strikes out and pops up, it seems unlikely that Carter could bat around .260 for a full season, but even with an average around .230, he'd be worth a middle-round pick in standard mixed Rotisserie leagues. Points league owners, on the other hand, should restrain themselves until the later rounds.
