Cardinals | Matt Carpenter could start at 3B

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Matt Carpenter could open the season starting at third base if 3B David Freese (back) isn't ready for the start of the year. The team will have Freese play in minor league games for the rest of spring training in case they need to backdate a disabled list stint.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter has played extremely well this spring and has made a nice transition to second base. Even if Freese is ready for the season, Carpenter should see enough time to be worth a late selection in deep mixed leagues.
