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.

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.

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.
Jun 3 - 12:05 AM

Chris Carter socked a two-run homer Friday against the Mets.

His first-inning blast off Steven Matz was the only offense the Brewers could muster on the night. Carter is now tied for the major league lead with 13 homers and also has 31 RBI. His batting average has dropped sharply this month, as it now sits at .247, but it was never built to last anyway.
May 20 - 9:56 PM

Chris Carter hit a two-run double in Tuesday's win over the Cubs.

Carter's two-RBI two-bagger in the sixth inning ended up being the difference in a Brewers' 4-2 win. He finished 1-for-3 on the night. He's cooled off after a monster start -- something we knew to be an inevitability eventually -- but the 29-year-old is still among the National League leaders in homers, RBI and slugging. He's now hitting .256/.320/.594 on the season.
May 17 - 10:40 PM

Chris Carter went 3-for-4 with two RBI in the Brewers' victory over the Padres on Sunday.

Carter struck out looking in his first at-bat, but he hit a solo homer in the third -- his 11th long ball of the year -- and then singled in the fifth and smacked an RBI double in the bottom of the seventh. The big slugger has an impressive .912 OPS through 37 games this season, and he's on pace for 47 homers and 111 RBI.
May 15 - 5:47 PM

Chris Carter is not in the Brewers' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

He's hitless in his last 20 at-bats and could probably use a day off to clear his head. Jonathan Lucroy will fill in for Carter at first base with Martin Maldonado subbing for Lucroy behind the plate. Despite his recent struggles, Carter still ranks sixth in the NL with 10 homers.
May 14 - 6:05 PM

Chris Carter homered twice and had three RBI as the Brewers edged the Angels 5-4 on Tuesday.

Carter hit a two-run homer in the third inning and added a solo shot in the fifth. He's now got nine home runs, third-most in the National League, with 21 RBI and 17 runs scored. The power production comes as a shock to no one; the fact that he's hitting .287/.356/.713 while doing it is the real story. That won't last, but the power should, for what it's worth.
May 4 - 12:22 AM

Chris Carter was locked in during Sunday's 14-5 obliteration of the Marlins, finishing 3-for-5 with a pair of homers, three RBI and three runs scored.

Not only did Carter homer twice, he also hit his 10th double of the season. The streaky slugger went yard with a two-run shot in the third inning and followed that up with a solo dinger just an inning later. After being non-tendered by the Astros over the winter, Carter is slashing a silly .278/.355/.671 with seven homers and 18 RBI for the Brew Crew. Fantasy owners should luxuriate in this hot stretch, because winter is coming. It always does with Carter.
May 1 - 6:30 PM

Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored versus the Phillies on Friday night.

Finally getting everyday at-bats, Carter's fantasy stock is trending upwards. He drove in his 14th run of the season, which leads the Brewers and ranks sixth-best in the majors. His two hits raised his slash line to .259/.328/.593 in 64 PA. There's no reason to think the 6-foot-4 slugger won't continue to be a run producer in the middle of Milwaukee's order.
Apr 22 - 11:49 PM

Chris Carter hit an absolute laser to center field for a two-run homer in the seventh inning, highlighting a 2-for-5 night at the plate against the Twins on Wednesday.

Carter doubled, homered, and drove in three runs on Wednesday. His two-run homer was an integral part of the Brewers' four-run outburst in the seventh inning, a quartet of runs that ultimately put the game out of reach. He's hitting .261/.339/.630 with four home runs and has been an anchor in the middle of the Brewers' batting order thus far. Don't panic when the batting average falls, either. He'll still see everyday at-bats and should be a great source of power.
Apr 21 - 12:29 AM

Chris Carter smacked a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Cardinals.

It was his only hit in three trips to the plate, with one of the at-bats resulting in a strikeout. Carter has now gone deep three times in the early going and is sporting a .261 batting mark. He's probably going to pop 30 homers for the Brew Crew this season, but make sure you have others to help balance out his low average.
Apr 11 - 7:39 PM

Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday’s win over the Astros.

Carter, who was non-tendered by the Astros in December, exacted revenge against his former team by taking Scott Feldman deep in the first inning. The 29-year-old has now homered in back-to-back games and is 4-for-13 (.308) to begin the year. The power should stick around, but the average most definitely won’t.
