Astros | Chris Carter aiming for fewer strikeouts

Tue, 11 Mar 2014 08:30:16 -0700

Houston Astros DH Chris Carter is working to cut down on his strikeout problem, chiefly by attacking pitches in the strike zone more frequently, regardless of count. He's 8-for-26 (.308) in the Grapefruit League this spring with three doubles, a home run and four RBI. Manager Bo Porter said Carter is picking up the ball better out of the pitcher's hand and has laid off pitches he would've hacked at last season.

Fantasy Tip: Carter drafters should pick him primarily for his ability to leave the yard, which is still excellent. Any BA improvement will be gravy and shouldn't be a guaranteed inclusion in what he offers.
