Chris Carter has started just five games at first base since July 12.
He's started four in the designated hitter spot over that stretch, which means he's been on the bench for exactly half of the Astros' 18 games during that time. With Jed Lowie back from the disabled list, it's created a mix-and-match of Carter, Luis Valbuena and Marwin Gonzalez at first base. "I try to go with the best matchup that we can offensively," manager A.J. Hinch said. "We’ve been searching for consistent offensive output." After a 37-homer homer campaign in 2014, Carter is batting just .181/.296/.381 with 17 longballs this season. Aug 5 - 10:29 AM
