Houston Astros first baseman Chris Carter is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Boston Red Sox after recovering from an ankle injury, according to the team's official website. Carter missed both games over the weekend after injuring his ankle Friday against the Texas Rangers, but he is ready to return after a team off-day Monday.

Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch said he is optimistic that first baseman Chris Carter will not need to be placed on the disabled list after leaving Friday's game against the Texas Rangers because of a sprained ankle, according to the team's official website. Carter is not in the starting lineup Saturday after being removed following a throw from Jose Altuve that pulled him off the bag in the second inning. “I’m trying not to go on the (disabled list),” Carter said. “We’ll see how it feels when I get here tomorrow and we’ll have a decision from there.” Jonathan Singleton will likely see time at first base while Carter is sidelined. Carter has tallied a .185 average with 15 home runs and 41 RBI in 86 games this season after hitting .227 with 37 home runs and 88 RBI last year.

Carter is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Indians.

Although Carter has still been getting most of the playing time at first base, this marks his third absence from the lineup in the last 12 games, following a seven-week stretch in which he started every contest. Jonathan Singleton is cutting into some of his at-bats, but Carter has been productive since a terrible April, making him a good bet to hold on to the starting job at first base. Singleton is just 3-for-20 since his call-up, with 10 strikeouts and no home runs.
