Chris Carter's 30th homer a big one
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/20/14) Astros designated hitter Chris Carter continued his hot-hitting ways Tuesday, as he slugged the team to a 7-4 victory over the Yankees.

Carter was hitless with four strikeouts heading into the ninth inning, but made up for that with one swing. With the score tied at 4-4, Carter unleashed a three-run blast to put the Astros up for good.

Carter has established a new career-high with his 30th home run of the season, and he has 72 RBI to go with that, just 10 off his best total. He is hitting .233/.301/.519 in 110 games overall. 

Chris Carter one home run shy of 30
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/17/14) Astros DH Chris Carter is one home run shy of 30 after belting his 29th home run Saturday at Boston. Carter was 2 for 4 with two runs and two RBI.

Carter put Houston ahead 3-0 with a sac fly in the second inning before giving Houston a 6-3 lead with a solo home run in the fourth inning. Unfortunately, Houston would lose the game 10-7.

Carter has been on quite the power surge, homering 16 times in his last 35 games. He has a .741 slugging percentage and 1.123 OPS in that span. Carter is also batting .333 with seven doubles, 31 runs and 39 RBI in his last 35 games.

Does Chris Carter have staying power?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/13/14) If you've owned Chris Carter for any of the last five weeks, you're probably pleased with both him for hitting a bunch of home runs -- 15 in his last 31 games, to be exact -- and yourself for having the foresight to start this player whose batting average only recently eclipsed the Mendoza line.

Considering it's up to a not-so-embarassing .230 now, it feels like ancient history, but it was really only a month ago. In fact, at the start of it all, Carter was batting a ghastly .182 with a .664 OPS. Can a player really change that much that fast? Has Carter?

Yes and no. While he's not the .328 hitter he's been in his last 31 games, he was due for a big correction with the way his season started. And judging by his .262 BABIP, down from .311 last year and .295 the year before, he's still due for more.

Granted, the abundance of home runs might be skewing that number a bit -- they don't count as "balls in play" -- but who's to say he hasn't improved as a power hitter at age 27? He wouldn't be the first. Even with all his limitations, the potential to hit 40 home runs with full-time at-bats would make Carter kind of like another Mark Trumbo. You drafted Trumbo at the start of the year expecting to play him every week, hot or cold, right? I sure did.

So while Carter is sure to cool off at some point, I won't be so quick to drop him, particularly in Rotisserie leagues, when he finally does.
