Player Notes
Matt Carpenter has moved back to the second spot in the Cardinals' lineup for Thursday's makeup game against the visiting Royals.

Advice: Carpenter, who's been in an ugly slump since early June, spent the last two nights hitting seventh. He obviously carries more fantasy potential as a No. 2 hitter, but it might not be the best spot for him right now. Carpenter was sidelined earlier this season with a case of extreme fatigue and he has looked slow to fastballs over the last couple of months.

Matt Carpenter is batting seventh for the Cardinals again on Wednesday night against the White Sox.

Advice: Carpenter went 2-for-5 with an RBI out of that spot Tuesday in the Cardinals' 8-5 win at U.S. Cellular Field. The third baseman has been in an extended offensive slump and continuing to bat him lower in the lineup may help take some pressure off, though it does slightly dent his fantasy potential. Kolten Wong is leading off and Randal Grichuk is hitting second on Wednesday.

Advice: This is just the second time since the beginning of 2013 that Carpenter has hit so low in the Cardinals' batting order. The third baseman is mired in an extended offensive slump, slashing .176/.315/.228 since June 1.
