Carpenter’s Comeback has Ended


It was reported this morning that Chris Carpenter has halted his comeback due to feeling some numbness and tingling in his pitching hand. Carp says he also felt the numbness after an earlier rehab start for AA Springfield.
There is concern that pitching through those symptoms could trigger the nerve troubles which almost forced carpenter to retire in February.
The 38 year old Carpenter says for now everyone is going to back off try and figure out what`s going on.
Carpenter was scheduled to meet with the Cardinals team doctors last night.
For now, Carpenter is not expected to appear in any rehab games for at least a week.
There is no timetable for when Carpenter will pick up a baseball again.
