News: Carp, who was scratched from Saturday's lineup because of tightness in his lower back, entered the game and played the final two innings.

News: Though Carp (lower back) was scratched from the starting lineup Saturday night, he entered the game in the 10th inning. Impact: On a night where the Red Sox had other injuries, Carp's injury at least allowed him to play. It did cost him another start against a right-handed starter, something he's getting a lot of with Shane Victorino out.(RotoWire, )

News: Carp made his second start of the season in Friday's loss to the Brewers. He went 1-for-2, before getting lifted for a pinch hitter. Impact: Carp has started two of the first four games - both against right-handed starters. His increased presence in the lineup is largely due to Shane Victorino's absence due to a hamstring injury that landed him on the disabled list. When Victorino returns, Carp will see less frequent at-bats and may even be a roster casualty, if Jackie Bradley produces.(RotoWire, )

News: Carp went 1-for-4 in Monday's 2-1 loss to Baltimore. Facing the right-handed Chris Tillman, manager John Farrell opted for the left-handed bat of Carp over Jonny Gomes. Impact: Farrell doesn't stick to a strict right-lefty platoon, but he has a supply of left-handed bats (Carp, Daniel Nava, Jackie Bradley) to deploy against right-handers.(RotoWire, )
