Matt Carpenter said Sunday that he didn't feel comfortable with his oblique injury down the stretch and even modified his swing to avoid aggravating the injury.
"It’s such a fickle injury," said Carpenter, who also played through an injury to his right knuckle. "It has so much to do with your swing. That first month back — and they knew this — I just dealt with it. If with every swing you’re trying to protect an oblique you’re not going to swing well. It’s just the way it is. I could find a way to help the team, to be an option." Carpenter posted a career-high .885 OPS this season, but he batted .229 with a .726 OPS over his final 51 games. Obviously missing the playoffs was a disappointment, but an offseason of rest will do him some good. Oct 4 - 10:16 AM
