Though he began the 2011 in the minor leagues at Class AAA, Carpenter was summoned to the big leagues by the Astros for the last four months of that season. He appeared in 34 games, all as a reliever. His won-loss record was 1-3 but his ERA was a more than respectable 2.93. Carpenter finished 12 of the 34 games he appeared in and struck out 29 in his 27.2 innings. He was credited with one save. His salary for those four months of activity with Houston was a cool $450,000 -- the minimum wage for a major league player. Now at age 26, Carpenter is back with Houston to begin the 2012 season.
