  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Won't return in regular season

    Carpenter (foot) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday, meaning he won't be activated before the end of the regular season.

    He could still possibly return in the postseason if the Yankees make a deep run. Carpenter could get at-bats in Somerset in the meantime, though he is still walking around with a limp, per Chris Kirschner of The Athletic.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Takes batting practice Friday

    Carpenter (foot) took batting practice on the field and hit in the cage Friday, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

    Carpenter has been working on weight-bearing activities on his fractured foot recently and hasn't had any issues. It's still possible that the 36-year-old rejoins the Yankees for their upcoming series against the Rangers to close out the regular season, but manager Aaron Boone also hinted Friday that Carpenter could ultimately head to Somerset to take live at-bats ahead of postseason play. Regardless of whether Carpenter is back in action during the final series of the regular season, it seems likely that he'll be in the mix for a postseason return.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Could return in a week

    Manager Aaron Boone said he is hopeful Carpenter (foot) could return during the team's final series against Texas, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Boone went on to say that the Yankees are "still a ways away from having an idea if that's going to be possible or not." Carpenter has been held out of action since the beginning of August with a fracture in his left foot. If he's unable to make it back for the end of the regular season, there is still a solid chance he can return to New York's lineup at some point during its playoff run.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: X-ray shows improvement

    Carpenter (foot) recently underwent an X-ray that revealed progress in his recovery, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Carpenter has been dealing with a fractured left foot since early August and has progressed well over the last few weeks. He's been cleared to take part in weight-bearing activities and is no longer in a walking boot. The 36-year-old will stand in on a bullpen session Wednesday, and he'll have a chance to rejoin at the Yankees at some point during the postseason if the team makes a run.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Still not cleared for activities

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that Carpenter (foot) has yet to be cleared for baseball activities, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports. "I am not sure," Boone said, when asked if Carpenter has a chance to return this season. "I think it kind of depends on when they X-ray next and then what that allows him to do from a ramp-up standpoint."

    Carpenter didn't require surgery to address the fractured left foot he sustained Aug. 8, and while he's shown improvement in the subsequent five weeks, he hasn't made enough progress to the point where he can begin on-field workouts. With just two and a half weeks left in the regular season, Carpenter seems unlikely to be ready to return from the 10-day injured list by the first week of October, but he could have a chance at coming back for the postseason if the Yankees are able to make a deep run.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Not cleared for baseball activities

    Carpenter (foot) underwent X-rays on Wednesday that showed healing, but he hasn't yet been cleared to resume baseball activities, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

    Carpenter has been sidelined with a broken foot for just under a month, but he didn't require surgery to address the issue. Although he's improving, his foot isn't yet healed to the point where he's able to resume baseball activities. The 36-year-old is slated to undergo another X-ray in 10-to-14 days, but he's running out of time to return during the regular season.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Won't need surgery

    Carpenter won't require surgery on his broken foot, though he'll still be returning very late in the regular season if he makes it back at all, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

    Carpenter recently visited a second foot specialist, whose diagnosis aligned with what the Yankee had previously heard. He'll avoid weight-bearing activities for two weeks, at which point he'll be re-evaluated.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Hopeful to return

    Carpenter said Wednesday that he "feels good" following an examination of his fractured left foot, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    After fouling a ball off his left foot Monday, a doctor's examination left Carpenter feeling encouraged about a potential return later this season. He won't need to undergo surgery and has a timeline of between six and eight weeks, which lines up right with the start of the postseason.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Sent to injured list

    The Yankees placed Carpenter (foot) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

    Carpenter's move to the IL was a foregone conclusion after the Yankees announced he suffered a fractured left foot in Monday's win over the Mariners. A timeline hasn't yet been established for Carpenter's return and will likely be contingent on whether he needs to undergo surgery to address the injury. Regardless, Carpenter looks to be at risk of missing most, if not all, of what's left of the 2022 season, making him a drop candidate in leagues where he's been rostered. Miguel Andujar was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to replace Carpenter, who has hit .305 with 15 home runs, 37 RBI and 28 runs in 47 games after joining the Yankees in late May.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Fractures foot, out indefinitely

    Carpenter was diagnosed with a broken left foot after leaving Monday's game against Seattle, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

    The injury is a devastating one for Carpenter, who had enjoyed a resurgence since joining the Yankees in late May while emerging as one of the team's top hitters. The Yankees likely won't have a timeline for Carpenter's return until a determination is made on whether or not he'll need surgery, but even if he's able to treat the fractured foot through rest and rehab, a trip to the injured list is all but guaranteed at this point.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Exits game early

    Carpenter was removed from Monday's game against the Mariners due to an apparent foot injury, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Carpenter fouled a ball off his back foot during his first at-bat of the game, and while he was able to remain int he contest temporarily, Tim Locastro was tapped to pinch hit in the top of the third. Carpenter will be considered day-to-day until further notice.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Not starting Monday

    Carpenter isn't starting Monday against the Mariners.

    Carpenter has started against just five left-handed pitchers this year and is getting a breather with southpaw Marco Gonzales on the mound for Seattle. Aaron Judge is shifting to right field while Aaron Hicks starts in center.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Slugs 15th homer

    Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in an 8-2 win against Kansas City on Saturday.

    Carpenter made his first start in three games and came through with a solo shot to right field in the seventh inning. The homer was his 15th in only 40 games with the Yankees, and he's slashing an impressive .311/.425/.792 over that span. Despite the impressive numbers, Carpenter's playing time could take a hit with New York's acquisition of Andrew Benintendi, though the former is versatile enough to still carve out enough playing time to make an impact.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Remains on bench Friday

    Carpenter isn't in the lineup Friday against Kansas City.

    Carpenter is on the bench for a second consecutive matchup after going 3-for-16 with a homer, two runs, an RBI, a walk and six strikeouts over the last five games. Andrew Benintendi, Aaron Hicks and Aaron Judge are starting in the outfield from left to right.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Sits out Thursday

    Carpenter is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals.

    Carpenter went 3-for-15 with a solo home run and a walk while starting each of the last four games in right field, and though it's Joey Gallo who will replace him in the lineup Thursday, the acquisition of Andrew Benintendi is more likely to dampen Carpenter's playing-time outlook moving forward. Giancarlo Stanton's (Achilles) recent move to the injured list temporarily alleviates the logjam in the corner outfield and at designated hitter, but once Stanton is healthy, the likes of Carpenter, Aaron Hicks and Gallo could all see their opportunities take a hit.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Steps in as Stanton replacement

    Carpenter will start in right field and bat fifth in Wednesday's game against the Mets.

    He'll man right field for the fourth game in a row and should serve as the primary option at the position following Giancarlo Stanton's (Achilles) placement on the 10-day injured list Tuesday. Carpenter has been cold out of the All-Star break with a 2-for-18 showing at the plate, but he's still holding down a monstrous 1.221 OPS through 118 plate appearances on the season.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Swats another homer

    Carpenter went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a loss to the Orioles on Saturday.

    Carpenter's second-inning long ball gave the Yankees a 2-0 lead and pushed his total to 14 homers on the campaign. Incredibly, he's reached that number in only 89 at-bats. Among players with at least 100 plate appearances, Carpenter's 38.9 HR/FB is tops in the majors.

  • Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Continues to mash with seven RBI

    Carpenter went 2-for-4 with two home runs, a walk, three total runs and seven total RBI in Saturday's 14-1 rout over the Red Sox.

    Boston took an early 1-0 lead, but Carpenter erased that with his three-run shot to right field in the first inning. The veteran connected on another three-run shot in the fifth, and he closed his ledger by drawing a bases-loaded walk in the eighth. It's been a remarkable resurgence for Carpenter this season -- he's slashing an incredible .360/.473/.933 with 13 homers, 31 RBI and 22 runs over just 92 plate appearances. Per ESPN, Carpenter is the fifth player in the expansion era to notch an OPS of at least 1.400 through his first 30 games of the season with a minimum of 90 plate appearances.
