Brewers | Chris Carter has his way with Miami

Sun, 01 May 2016 15:35:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter ended a three-game hitless drought in a big way on Sunday, May 1, finishing 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs, three RBI and three runs scored en route to a 14-5 rout of the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Consistency and a high batting average have never been Carter's calling cards, so owners should look to sell high pretty soon on one of the streakier power hitters in the game. With that said, he's been a solid four-category contributor so far, batting .278 with seven home runs, 18 RBI and 15 runs scored. He should remain in lineups against Jered Weaver and the Los Angeles Angels at home on Monday.

Brewers | Chris Carter stays hot vs. Philly

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 05:29:41 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk during Milwaukee's 10-6 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: It was Carter's fifth home run of the season, and he is sitting with an impressive nine runs, seven doubles, 15 RBI and a .281/.353/.667 slash line. The power is sustainable, but Carter entered 2016 with a career .217 batting average, so expect negative regression in that department. Still, power-starved clubs could receive a nice boost from the established slugger.

Brewers | Chris Carter sits

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 08:39:11 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter is out of the lineup Thursday, April 14, with C Jonathan Lucroy sliding over to first base and hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: The move is a little puzzling because lefty Jaime Garcia is on the mound. However, when you take into consideration that Lucroy has hit safely in all seven of his games and is hitting .346, it makes sense to keep him in there. Lucroy is a high-end catching option. Martin Maldonado is behind the plate, but he doesn't deserve fantasy consideration.

Brewers | Chris Carter goes yard Wednesday

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 14:30:26 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Chris Carter delivered his first home run with his new team Wednesday, April 6, opposite the San Francisco Giants. He finished the game 1-for-3 with one run scored and two RBI.

Fantasy Tip: It was a solo shot in the third inning, and Carter's other run driven in came on a sacrifice fly. There should be plenty more bombs from the former Astro as the season rolls along, and owners should be tracking him if he's out on the waiver wire. Even in many standard mixed formats, Carter has value and can be a solid cheap power source.

Brewers | Chris Carter signs with Milwaukee

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 15:23:22 -0800

Free-agent 1B Chris Carter (Astros) signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with $500,000 in incentives with the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Carter has the upside to hit 30 home runs and drive in 80 RBI, which makes him a great late-round option, if you're power starved. The issue is Carter owns a .218/.312/.459 slash line over the past three seasons. He will also have to play first base in the National League, which could prove to be another factor limiting his upside and could potentially limit his playing time to a degree.

Brewers | Milwaukee seeking first baseman

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 10:21:48 -0800

Free-agent 1B Pedro Alvarez (Pirates), 1B Steve Pearce (Orioles), 1B Ike Davis (Athletics), 1B Chris Carter (Astros) and 1B/OF Daniel Nava (Rays) are of interest to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever lands at first for Milwaukee will have some value, possibly hitting between Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy.

Indians | Cleveland eyeing free-agent sluggers

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 15:30:29 -0800

Free-agent 1Bs Pedro Alvarez (Pirates) and Chris Carter (Astros) are of interest to the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Cleveland hasn't had a full-time designated hitter over the past three seasons, and Alvarez and Carter are both best suited for the DH role. Both hitters own 30-homer, 80-RBI upside and are still in their offensive primes. Neither will help in any of the batting average, run or stolen base categories, but with full-time at-bats, both are late-round sources of power in seasonal leagues.

Astros | Chris Carter not tendered contract

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 05:23:33 -0800

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter was non-tendered Wednesday, Dec. 2, and is now a free agent.

Fantasy Tip: Carter hit just .199 with 151 strikeouts in 391 at-bats, but he hit 24 homers. He has a ton of pop if you can deal with the average later in drafts.

Astros | Chris Carter on the trade block

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 11:25:56 -0800

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter is being shopped to American League teams ahead of the contract tender deadline Wednesday, Dec. 2, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Carter's a defensive liability, so sticking in the AL is likely for the slugger. Since joining the Astros, Carter has averaged 30 home runs and 78 RBI over the past three seasons, however, the power numbers are anchored by his .218/.312/.459 slash line. He is a reliable power source in the late rounds of drafts, but don't expect him to help outside of home runs and RBI.

Astros | Chris Carter could be non-tendered

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 04:29:09 -0800

Houston Astros 1B Chris Carter could be non-tendered before or on the Dec. 2 deadline for tender offers to be made to arbitration-eligible players.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Carter roared to over a .400 average in the postseason, apparently a batting average around .200 takes you only so far despite 30-40 homers a year. The Astros also have prospect A.J. Reed ready to go down the line. Carter could be a sleeper selection in lower rounds of mixed drafts if he ends up in a good spot.
