The 2015 VEB Community projections project marches on. Today we're on our sixth player: Matt Carpenter. After a breakout 2013, Carpenter's average and power sagged in 2014. Will he perform like he did last year, in his MVP-caliber 2013, or somewhere in between?
Carpenter's stats can be found at Fangraphs and Baseball-Reference. His SBN profile page includes links to VEB's analysis of the third baseman. Feel free to do as much research as you please.
Also, if you have not yet submitted your projections for Lance Lynn, Matt Holliday, Michael Wacha, Matt Adams, or Adam Wainwright, you can do so here.
Feel free to discuss your predictions and rationale in the comments!
Update: As of March 30, 2015, Viva El Birdos is no longer accepting community member submissions for the Matt Carpenter projections. You can view the 2015 VEB Community projection results here.
