Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Thursday that the team is considering moving Matt Carpenter down in the batting order next season.
Carpenter's .384 OBP over the last two seasons ranks ninth in baseball for batters with at least 1,000 plate appearances, and his 225 runs scored over that time leads all of MLB. However, he also has 116 extra-base hits in that span, which has the Cards thinking he could move into more of an RBI spot in the No. 2 or No. 3 hole. Jon Jay and Kolten Wong represent internal options to ascend to the leadoff spot should St. Louis decide to move Carpenter down. Nov 14 - 11:17 AM
