5/25/2014 12:25:00 PM
Description: Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter has collected a mere two hits in 13 lifetime at bats versus Reds starter Mike Leake.
Insight: That's not what you want to see. Neither is Carpenter's puny .275 batting average, which is 43 points lower than what he hit last season. Your best bet Sunday would probably be to leave Carpenter on your team's bench.

Description: St. Louis third baseman Matt Carpenter is a .579 career average against Cincinnati right-hander Homer Bailey.
Insight: Carpenter is 11-for-19, though without much power (two doubles, nine singles). Fantasy owners hope he'll get close to last year's breakout season (.318, 126 runs, 199 hits, 78 RBI).

Description: Cardinals second baseman Matt Carpenter has been a doubles machine this season (45 two-baggers in 530 at bats). He'd be lucky to hit anything Wednesday versus Bronson Arroyo, though.
