Matthew Martin Lee Carpenter (born November 26, 1985) is an American professional baseball infielder for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball (MLB).

He made his MLB debut with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2011. A left-handed batter and right-handed thrower, Carpenter stands 6 feet 3 inches (1.91 m) and weighs 205 pounds (93 kg).

Since becoming a regular player in 2013, Carpenter has spent considerable time at first base, second base, and third base. The Cardinals selected him in the 13th round of the 2009 MLB draft from Texas Christian University (TCU).

A three-time second-team All-Mountain West Conference selectee, he broke TCU’s school record for games played and at-bats and is second in hits, doubles, and walks. He was the Cardinals’ organization Player of the Year in 2010.

A three-time MLB All-Star Game selection, he became the first Silver Slugger Award winner at second base in Cardinal’s franchise history after leading the major leagues in hits, runs scored, and doubles in 2013.

The St. Louis Cardinals selected Carpenter in the 13th round of the 2009 Major League Baseball draft. Due to advanced age stemming from his redshirt senior season at TCU, he had little leverage in negotiations and was forced to settle for a $1,000 bonus.

On March 18, 2022, Carpenter signed a minor-league contract with the Texas Rangers with an invitation to major-league spring training.

Carpenter did not make the Rangers’ Opening Day roster, and he accepted an assignment with the Triple-A Round Rock Express. On May 19, 2022, the Rangers released Carpenter after he batted .275 with six home runs over 21 games.
