Texas Rangers 1B/OF Mike Carp said Monday, Aug. 4, that he is open to any role with his new team. He was in the lineup at first base and batting fifth against the Chicago White Sox, and he can also play left field or help out as the designated hitter.

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Carp said he has asked for a trade because he has seen his playing time decrease this season and wants to play more than once a week. "It feels almost as if sometimes you're getting set up for failure. It's a tough situation. Nobody wants to think that. My goal every day is to go out there and win and try to help the team the best I can, do the best with my opportunity. That's where my mind's at. But when you sit around for a week, for two weeks, thoughts linger and it makes it difficult," Carp said.
