Carpenter to undergo further evaluation
CINCINNATI -- Chris Carpenter, who began the season on the 15-day disabled list with nerve irritation which caused weakness in his right shoulder, will undergo further evaluation this week, according to Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak.

"He'll go through a battery of tests this week to quantify where he is," said Mozeliak. "Based on that information, we'll determine the next step. He's getting stronger. We're optimistic that we're going in the right direction."

Carpenter did not pitch in Spring Training. He went 11-9 last season with a 3.45 ERA in a NL-leading 34 starts. Carpenter was 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA in three World Series starts.

"He's an extremely hard worker and focused on getting back as soon as possible," Mozeliak said. "Anyone that has been around Chris Carpenter understands how competitive he is, and how special of a guy he is. Hopefully he's back sooner rather than later."
