  • Padres' Matt Carpenter: Likely to split time at DH

    Carpenter and Nelson Cruz will likely share DH duties this season, Jeff Snider of reports. Carpenter and Cruz are both newcomers to the Padres this season, and they form a natural platoon pair with the former being a left-handed batter and the latter batting from the right side of the plate. Carpenter has also been playing first base this spring, per Jack Magruder of, so he figures to get additional at-bats by occasionally starting at that position. San Diego will be hoping that the veteran can recapture some of the magic that led Carpenter to a huge bounce-back campaign with the Yankees last season, when he slashed .305/.412/.727 with 15 homers and 37 RBI over just 154 plate appearances.

  • Padres' Matt Carpenter: Signs with San Diego

    Carpenter signed a one-year deal with the Padres on Tuesday which includes a player option for a second season, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. After producing a below-average batting line in three consecutive seasons, Carpenter rebounded to hit .305/.412/.727 for the Yankees last season, albeit in just 47 games. A repeat of those fantastic numbers this season would be a surprise, though his dramatic improvement wasn't entirely a fluke, as he trimmed his strikeout rate by over eight points to 22.7 percent and posted a 13.7 percent barrel rate. The veteran should be able to help out at all four corner spots if needed but appears to have a path to playing time as the team's primary designated hitter, though that could still change with future offseason moves.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Returning in bench role

    Carpenter (foot) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday. Manager Aaron Boone said he sees Carpenter as a "big bat off the bench," Bryan Hoch of reports. The 36-year-old recorded a whopping 1.139 OPS in 2022, but he has been held out of action since Aug. 8. So, while Carpenter may not be used in an on-field role, it's reasonable to expect him to be used in a few pinch-hit scenarios throughout the Yankees' playoff run.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Still on track for ALDS

    Carpenter (foot) feels ready for the upcoming ALDS against Cleveland and will get another workout in Sunday, Bryan Hoch of reports. The timeline hasn't changed for Carpenter, who remains on track to return in time for the American League Divisional Series after suffering a fractured foot Aug. 8 against Seattle. Per Hoch, Carpenter has already been hitting and running the bases, and he's set for a few more at-bats and a workout at first base Sunday. The veteran slugger fully expects to be available for Game 1 on Tuesday.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Should return for ALDS

    Manager Aaron Boone said Thursday he expects Carpenter (foot) to be on the Yankees' roster for the start of the ALDS next week, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. The 36-year-old was transferred to the 60-day injured list over the weekend but will apparently be ready to go for Game 1 of the ALDS on Tuesday. Carpenter had a resurgent campaign in limited chances for the Yankees and produced a .205/.412/.727 slash line with 15 home runs, 37 RBI and 28 runs in only 154 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Won't return in regular season

    Carpenter (foot) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday, meaning he won't be activated before the end of the regular season. He could still possibly return in the postseason if the Yankees make a deep run. Carpenter could get at-bats in Somerset in the meantime, though he is still walking around with a limp, per Chris Kirschner of The Athletic.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Takes batting practice Friday

    Carpenter (foot) took batting practice on the field and hit in the cage Friday, Marly Rivera of reports. Carpenter has been working on weight-bearing activities on his fractured foot recently and hasn't had any issues. It's still possible that the 36-year-old rejoins the Yankees for their upcoming series against the Rangers to close out the regular season, but manager Aaron Boone also hinted Friday that Carpenter could ultimately head to Somerset to take live at-bats ahead of postseason play. Regardless of whether Carpenter is back in action during the final series of the regular season, it seems likely that he'll be in the mix for a postseason return.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Could return in a week

    Manager Aaron Boone said he is hopeful Carpenter (foot) could return during the team's final series against Texas, Bryan Hoch of reports. Boone went on to say that the Yankees are "still a ways away from having an idea if that's going to be possible or not." Carpenter has been held out of action since the beginning of August with a fracture in his left foot. If he's unable to make it back for the end of the regular season, there is still a solid chance he can return to New York's lineup at some point during its playoff run.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: X-ray shows improvement

    Carpenter (foot) recently underwent an X-ray that revealed progress in his recovery, Bryan Hoch of reports. Carpenter has been dealing with a fractured left foot since early August and has progressed well over the last few weeks. He's been cleared to take part in weight-bearing activities and is no longer in a walking boot. The 36-year-old will stand in on a bullpen session Wednesday, and he'll have a chance to rejoin at the Yankees at some point during the postseason if the team makes a run.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Still not cleared for activities

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that Carpenter (foot) has yet to be cleared for baseball activities, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports. "I am not sure," Boone said, when asked if Carpenter has a chance to return this season. "I think it kind of depends on when they X-ray next and then what that allows him to do from a ramp-up standpoint." Carpenter didn't require surgery to address the fractured left foot he sustained Aug. 8, and while he's shown improvement in the subsequent five weeks, he hasn't made enough progress to the point where he can begin on-field workouts. With just two and a half weeks left in the regular season, Carpenter seems unlikely to be ready to return from the 10-day injured list by the first week of October, but he could have a chance at coming back for the postseason if the Yankees are able to make a deep run.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Not cleared for baseball activities

    Carpenter (foot) underwent X-rays on Wednesday that showed healing, but he hasn't yet been cleared to resume baseball activities, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports. Carpenter has been sidelined with a broken foot for just under a month, but he didn't require surgery to address the issue. Although he's improving, his foot isn't yet healed to the point where he's able to resume baseball activities. The 36-year-old is slated to undergo another X-ray in 10-to-14 days, but he's running out of time to return during the regular season.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Won't need surgery

    Carpenter won't require surgery on his broken foot, though he'll still be returning very late in the regular season if he makes it back at all, Marly Rivera of reports. Carpenter recently visited a second foot specialist, whose diagnosis aligned with what the Yankee had previously heard. He'll avoid weight-bearing activities for two weeks, at which point he'll be re-evaluated.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Hopeful to return

    Carpenter said Wednesday that he "feels good" following an examination of his fractured left foot, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. After fouling a ball off his left foot Monday, a doctor's examination left Carpenter feeling encouraged about a potential return later this season. He won't need to undergo surgery and has a timeline of between six and eight weeks, which lines up right with the start of the postseason.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Sent to injured list

    The Yankees placed Carpenter (foot) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday. Carpenter's move to the IL was a foregone conclusion after the Yankees announced he suffered a fractured left foot in Monday's win over the Mariners. A timeline hasn't yet been established for Carpenter's return and will likely be contingent on whether he needs to undergo surgery to address the injury. Regardless, Carpenter looks to be at risk of missing most, if not all, of what's left of the 2022 season, making him a drop candidate in leagues where he's been rostered. Miguel Andujar was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to replace Carpenter, who has hit .305 with 15 home runs, 37 RBI and 28 runs in 47 games after joining the Yankees in late May.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Fractures foot, out indefinitely

    Carpenter was diagnosed with a broken left foot after leaving Monday's game against Seattle, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. The injury is a devastating one for Carpenter, who had enjoyed a resurgence since joining the Yankees in late May while emerging as one of the team's top hitters. The Yankees likely won't have a timeline for Carpenter's return until a determination is made on whether or not he'll need surgery, but even if he's able to treat the fractured foot through rest and rehab, a trip to the injured list is all but guaranteed at this point.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Exits game early

    Carpenter was removed from Monday's game against the Mariners due to an apparent foot injury, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Carpenter fouled a ball off his back foot during his first at-bat of the game, and while he was able to remain int he contest temporarily, Tim Locastro was tapped to pinch hit in the top of the third. Carpenter will be considered day-to-day until further notice.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Not starting Monday

    Carpenter isn't starting Monday against the Mariners. Carpenter has started against just five left-handed pitchers this year and is getting a breather with southpaw Marco Gonzales on the mound for Seattle. Aaron Judge is shifting to right field while Aaron Hicks starts in center.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Slugs 15th homer

    Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in an 8-2 win against Kansas City on Saturday. Carpenter made his first start in three games and came through with a solo shot to right field in the seventh inning. The homer was his 15th in only 40 games with the Yankees, and he's slashing an impressive .311/.425/.792 over that span. Despite the impressive numbers, Carpenter's playing time could take a hit with New York's acquisition of Andrew Benintendi, though the former is versatile enough to still carve out enough playing time to make an impact.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Remains on bench Friday

    Carpenter isn't in the lineup Friday against Kansas City. Carpenter is on the bench for a second consecutive matchup after going 3-for-16 with a homer, two runs, an RBI, a walk and six strikeouts over the last five games. Andrew Benintendi, Aaron Hicks and Aaron Judge are starting in the outfield from left to right.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Sits out Thursday

    Carpenter is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals. Carpenter went 3-for-15 with a solo home run and a walk while starting each of the last four games in right field, and though it's Joey Gallo who will replace him in the lineup Thursday, the acquisition of Andrew Benintendi is more likely to dampen Carpenter's playing-time outlook moving forward. Giancarlo Stanton's (Achilles) recent move to the injured list temporarily alleviates the logjam in the corner outfield and at designated hitter, but once Stanton is healthy, the likes of Carpenter, Aaron Hicks and Gallo could all see their opportunities take a hit.
