This Carpenter Has Many Tools That Help New York Yankees
It's hard to go through a minor league system, spend 11 years with one Major League organization and then just move on. The St. Louis Cardinals were done with Matt Carpenter and bought out his option in November. The 36 year-old utility master, who has played significant time at 1st, 2nd, 3rd, left field and right field, knew someone could use his tools. In addition to his defensive skills, the 3-time All Star has a Silver Slugger Award in that belt.
