Appearing as a striker on the bench, he’s played his way into an increasingly larger role with an incredible rebounding season. Carpenter called 15 home rounds in 154 panel appearances, and posted another .305/.412/.727 line. He made his way into the lineup, with manager Aaron Boone alternating him between the designated hitter and all four positions in the corner.
