News: Carter went deep for his second home run in as many games Wednesday against the Mariners. Impact: Carter went 1-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts on the afternoon. The 27-year-old designated hitter has hit well at Safeco Field throughout his career, and needed this kind of spark after a slow start to his season. He'll look to carry over that momentum into a four game set against Oakland, starting Thursday in Houston.(RotoWire, )

News: Carter is out of the Astros' lineup Monday at Seattle, Brian McTaggart of reports. Impact: Carter will hand over DH to Matt Dominguez, who will bat seventh in the order. The day of rest will potentially aid Carter in turning around his dismal (to say the least) start to the season, which includes no homers and a .123/.250/.211 in 57 at-bats.(RotoWire, )

News: Carter went 0-for-4 Sunday to drop his average to .123. Impact: Carter had three fly balls and a strikeout on Sunday and looked off balance most of the day. He did hit one to the warning tack, but appeared to be out in front on that swing. With no homers and a brutal average through his first 57 at-bats of the year, one has to wonder when his playing time will start to significantly fall off.(RotoWire, )

News: Carter is back in the starting lineup Thursday against the Royals. Impact: Carter, who did not start Wednesday amidst a 1-for-21 slump at the plate, will DH and bat sixth against Royals' starter James Shields. He is 3-for-7 against Shields in his career, with two walks.(RotoWire, )

News: Carter is not in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Royals. Impact: Carter is struggling at the plate right now and could benefit from a day off to clear his head. In his absence, Marc Krauss will bat sixth as the Astros' designated hitter.(RotoWire, )

News: Carter was hitless in four at-bats Tuesday with three strikeouts against the Royals. Impact: Carter is mired in a 1-for-21 skid at the plate with 10 strikeouts over his past six games. He's batting .136 with no home runs, one RBI and a 21:6 K:BB in 44 at-bats thus far.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 11, 2014
News: Carter went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts Thursday. Impact: Carter dropped to fifth in the lineup but that's probably still too high for a 'hitter' with 15 strikeouts.(STATS, 4:04pm)
Thu. Apr 10, 2014
News: Carter went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts Wednesday. Impact: Carter was the DH for the 'Stros but with 13 strikeouts, he's tied for the big-league lead in that department and should not be anywhere near anyone's fantasy team.(STATS, 3:47pm)
