Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Astros are looking to trade Chris Carter.

Carter has 21 home runs in 93 games this season but is also sporting a weak .212 batting average and .291 on-base percentage. The 27-year-old will be arbitration-eligible for the first time heading into 2015 and is under contractual control through 2018, so Houston will want something fairly significant in return.

Chris Carter hit two home runs as the Astros bested the Rangers 8-3 on Tuesday.

Carter connected off of Neftali Feliz in the sixth inning before taking Aaron Poreda deep in the eighth. The homers give him four jacks in his last four games, and he's 7-for-20 with six runs scored and seven RBI in his last five. The blasts give him 17 home runs overall. It's about all he does well -- he's batting just .194/.274/.446 for the year -- but in AL-only leagues where pop is hard to come by, Carter is a decent source of power, if nothing else.
