Made his debut at the Trop last night.

Batting 8th (yes, as DH), went 0-2 in 4 PAs with 2 groundouts, a walk and a HBP. Scored both times on base.

I'm not sure subby knows the meaning of slugger in regards to hitting in baseball.

Stanton is on the IL, LeMahieu is day to day and a couple of pitchers are out.  I'm guessing the Donaldson illness is a short term problem.

So they're 32-13 and still scoring enough runs to win most of the time.  Carpenter fills in for a couple weeks.  Not a big deal.

I wish the Tigers had their problems.

He seems like a good guy and very appreciative to have a chance to play, especially for the Yankees.

"If you want me to load the bags on the plane, that's what I'll do," Carpenter said.
