Carpenter has hit .263/.391/.474 since the end of April when we all tried to figure out why the x-stats were bogus and didn't apply to him.

Still sucks
Last 14 days: .320/.414/.520 in 29 PA's

It hurts our defense, but while he's hot we should be going with Marp at 2B, Edman in RF until Bader returns.

Arbitrary 29 PAs is nice and he’s been a fine bench bat/PH but not sure I like him at 2B much when anything he does is negated by not making an easy double play or whatever.

0.2 fWAR

Well Bader and even Justin Williams are now on the DL. You're playing either Edman or Lane Thomas in the OF. With DeJong back you can play Sosa at 2B to put better defense out there, but Sosa has ran cold after his late May hot streak.

I'll take the hot bat and the defensive hit for now. When Bader returns, Marp can go back to his PH role. We all know Marp is an incredibly streaky hitter, and it would be foolish not to take advantage of one of his hotter streaks.

Is he on course for 550 PAs?

Nowhere close. He's at 119 PA's right now. 100 games remaining, he would have to average over 4 PA's per every remaining game.

Leave carp as a bench bat.

It scares me too, but unfortunately it's not something we can totally rule out.
