TAMPA, Fla. — The New York Yankees announced that they’ve signed Matt Carpenter. The utility infielder was a three-time National League All-Star for the St. Louis Cardinals.

In 11 seasons, from 2011 to 2021 with the Cardinals, Carpenter, 36, who can play virtually all infield positions, collected 1,153 hits and was a doubles machine in his prime, leading the Senior Circuit twice.

Yet, last season was not great for him. In 130 games his slash line was .169/.305/.275/.581.

Prior to the signing, he had been toiling for the Texas Rangers’ Triple-A club, hitting six home runs in 21 games for Round Rock.

Carpenter has been issued No. 24 and is on the active roster.

We’ll see what he has left and if the Yankees can catch lightning in a bottle.
