MLBTR reported on the 20th (Korea time) that St. Louis announced that it had signed a one-year contract with Carpenter.

Carpenter already signed a 2024 contract, but was released from Atlanta last month. In other words, St. Louis only has to pay Carpenter the minimum amount of the league that is proportionally allocated for the time spent on the roster, and the Atlanta Braves pay the rest.

According to MLBTR, Carpenter spent the majority of his career in St. Louis. Drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2009, he played for St. Louis from 2011 to 2021. In total, he hit 155 home runs in 1,329 games and posted a slash line of 0.262/0.368/0.449. He was a three-time All-Star and once won the Silver Slugger Award.

His output, however, shrank over three years, including just 0.169/0.305/0.275 in 2021. In response, St. Louis rejected a $18.5 million club option in 2022 and instead let him go for a $2 million buyout.

After becoming a free agent, Carpenter signed a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers and ended up playing for Triple-A teams. There, he played 21 games and scored a slash line of 0.275/0.379/0.613.

However, Texas released him and Carpenter signed a big league contract with the New York Yankees.

For the Yankees, Carpenter swung a fire bat. He hit 15 home runs in 47 games and produced a monster line of 0.305/0.412/0.727.

However, he fractured his foot on a foul ball he hit in early August and was out of the season.

At the end of the season, the San Diego Padres gave Carpenter a two-year, $12 million gift.

However, last year’s performance in San Diego was only 0.176/0.322/0.319. From the end of July to the end of the season, he entered only 30 plate appearances.

At the end of the season, Carpenter decided to use his player option to earn $5.5 million in 2024.

San Diego traded him to Atlanta with left-hander Ray Kerr. Instead, he received minor league outfielder Drew Campbell. Atlanta tried to trade Carpenter again, but gave up and released him three days later. He was given Carpenter as a means to bring Kerr back.

St. Louis, which had suffered such ups and downs, embraced him. This is because they only need to give the minimum salary.

MLBTR expected St. Louis to use Carpenter as a designated hitter and pinch-hitter agent.

Albert Pujols, also a franchise star, returned to his old St. Louis club after 11 years and retired there.
