The New York Yankees have struggled a lot in the second half of the season, with many of their productive bats rather cold or injured, as the case may be of powerful southpaw Matt Carpenter, who had a renaissance in the Bronx after being possibly the worst batsman of the last two seasons, but He was cut after breaking his leg and being in limbo for his season.
Now it looks like there’s some good news for the Yankees and some not-so-good news, as MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reports that manager Aaron Boone said Carpenter will have X-rays this week to see if he’s improved himself. so much for the offense and see if he can be activated before the end of the season.
Chris Kirschner of The Athletic, on the other hand, has been more optimistic, saying that the Yankees hope that his leg has improved enough to plan his return to the field as soon as possible.
In 47 games with the Yankees, Carpenter was hitting .305/.412/.727 with 15 home runs and 37 RBI, was injured on August 8th.
