You can’t help but hear. Your buddies will say to you, ‘You might be going somewhere else.’ But this is the only place for me. To go out and compete with these guys on the field every day, that’s all you can ask for."

Mike Carp finally getting playing time


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2013) Red Sox outfielder Mike Carp is finally getting playing time.

Carp teased some Fantasy owners after a promising 2011, but slumped badly in 2012. He was basically written off as a Fantasy asset in 2013 due to his role.

Carp didn't immediately receive playing time with the Red Sox, but has been playing regularly since late May. He's made the most of his opportunities, hitting .338/.371/.680 in 97 at-bats. There's no way he'll continue this torrid pace, but he has shown the ability to hit for decent average and decent power in part-time play. In a full-time role, he could build on his numbers and establish value in Fantasy leagues.
