Chris Carter went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.
Carter lifted off against Rangers starter A.J. Griffin the first inning for the two-run blast. He's now just one homer shy of 40, and his 39 homers, 92 RBI and 81 runs scored are all personal bests for the 29-year-old. In the National League, only Nolan Arenado has more homers than Carter with a handful of games left to play. Sep 28 - 12:00 AM

Chris Carter hit his 34th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

Carter took Reds reliever Tony Cingrani deep with a runner on in the ninth inning for the two-run shot. With a few weeks left to play, the 29-year-old has a shot at tying or besting his career-high 37 homers he hit in 2014. He would also likely eclipse the 88 RBI he recorded that year -- he's got 82 runs batted in this year -- and Carter has already set a personal best with 72 runs scored. He's been one of a handful of bright spots for the otherwise pedestrian Brewers this year.

Chris Carter finished 4-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored to lead the Brewers to a 7-4 win over the Pirates on Saturday.

Carter went deep off Pirates starter Ivan Nova in the sixth inning, a two-run dong that was his 31st this season. That's good for third-most in the National League, and his 67 runs scored are one shy of tying his single-season best in that category. All in all it's been a successful first year in Milwaukee for the 29-year-old, who's hitting .226/.324/.489 with 74 RBI through 133 games.
Sep 4 - 12:34 AM

Chris Carter smacked his 30th home run of the season in Monday's win over the Rockies.

It was his only hit of the night, but he drew a couple weeks to reach three times in his four trips to the plate. Carter has now reached the 30-homer plateau for the second time in his career, and he has a shot to break his career high of 37 that was set in 2014.
Aug 22 - 10:35 PM

Chris Carter swatted a three-run bomb to lead the Brewers to victory on Wednesday.

It was his only hit of the night but he matched the Braves' total scoring output with one swing of the bat. Carter is an all-or-nothing player and tonight his owners got the all instead of the nothing. It was his 26th home run, which helps ease the pain of his .217 batting average.
Aug 10 - 11:42 PM

Chris Carter went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Padres.

Carter connected for a solo blast off reliever Brad Hand to lead off the eighth inning. It drew the Brewers to within 6-3, but they would not strike for another run in the contest. Carter's bat was cooled off for much of July, but he caught fire near the end of the month and has now homered in three of his last four games. The all-or-nothing slugger is slashing .217/.304/.487 with 25 homers and 60 RBI over 355 at-bats. He has two months to secure the second 30-homer season of his career. Carter initially achieved the feat when he launched 37 taters during the 2014 campaign.
Aug 2 - 2:00 AM

Chris Carter launched a two-run homer Friday against the Pirates.

Carter took Steven Brault deep in the first inning and that was more than enough for Junior Guerra. The 29-year-old has amassed 23 homers this season, but this was his first since his two-homer game against the Cardinals on July 8. He’s batting just .173 this month, so he’ll be happy to see the calendar flip to August.
Jul 30 - 1:05 AM

Chris Carter hit his 21st and 22nd homers of the year to lift the Brewers to a 4-3 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

Carter's average has sunk since a fast start, and he's not getting hardly any RBI on anything apart from his homers. Still, 22 homers in 83 games is a pretty nice pace, one that he could come close to maintaining in the second half.
Jul 8 - 11:42 PM

Chris Carter is out of the Brewers' starting lineup Monday afternoon against the Nationals.

Carter is 1-for-11 with seven strikeouts in his career versus Nats starter Max Scherzer. Jonathan Lucroy will play first base and Martin Maldonado will catch.
Jul 4 - 10:23 AM

Chris Carter socked a solo homer Friday against the Cardinals.

His second-inning blast against Jaime Garcia was the only offense of the night for the Brew Crew. Carter is now up to 20 homers on the year, which ties him for fourth in the National League. He’s four away from his total from all of last season.
Jul 1 - 11:13 PM

Chris Carter went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and two runs scored as the Brewers edged the Nationals 6-5 on Saturday.

Carter's three-run home run in the bottom of the first inning got the scoring started. It was his 19th homer of the season -- third-most in the National League -- giving him 47 RBI and 36 runs scored. The 29-year-old is batting .229/.305/.508 in 72 games this season.
Jun 25 - 10:02 PM

Chris Carter went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the A's.

Carter hit an RBI single off A's starter Sonny Gray in the sixth inning. It gave the Brewers a short-lived 2-1 lead which would be erased in the bottom of the frame. Outside of the single, the all-or-nothing slugger struck out three times. For the season, Carter is slashing .225/.297/.502 with 18 homers and 44 RBI across 249 at-bats. That fantastic power output comes with 91 strikeouts.
Jun 22 - 1:54 AM

Justin Tasch and Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News report that the Mets have talked to the Brewers "about a few players."

Chris Carter is surely available via trade and would make sense for the Mets with Lucas Duda (back) out indefinitely. He's making $2.5 million in 2016 in a year where he's hit 18 homers and is under team control through 2018. The Brewers are also expected to shop Jonathan Lucroy and he could be a possibility for the Mets, especially if they're not confident Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) can stay healthy.
Jun 19 - 9:29 AM

Chris Carter blasted a pair of long balls and drove in five runs, powering the Brewers to a 5-4 victory over the visiting Athletics on Tuesday.

Carter tagged rookie southpaw Sean Manaea for a two-run homer in the second inning to get the Brewers on the board. He then put the game out of reach with a towering three-run blast in the sixth. Carter has been a fantastic source of run-production in the middle of the Brewers lineup this season, slashing .228/.289/.524 with 16 homers and 39 RBI.
Jun 7 - 10:48 PM

Chris Carter hit his 14th home run of the season in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

Carter continues to be all or nothing, as he's now hitting .224/.284/.510 with 14 homers and 71 strikeouts in 52 games. When he goes a stretch without a homer, as he did from May 21 until Thursday, that feast-or-famine approach is magnified. Of course, his 14 homers still rank as fourth-most in the National League.
