Carpenter 'getting stronger' with rehab work
ST. LOUIS -- There remains no timetable for when Chris Carpenter will be cleared to begin throwing again, though the right-hander said on Friday that he is "feeling better [and] definitely getting stronger" through his ongoing rehab work. That work includes exercises designed to increase the strength in Carpenter's right shoulder.

It has been more than three weeks now since Carpenter stopped his throwing program. The lack of arm strength was soon after determined to be related to nerve irritation. At the time of the diagnosis, it was expected that Carpenter would be limited to strengthening exercises for at least three weeks.

"It's still day to day," Carpenter said. "We'll talk about what's going on here this weekend. We'll talk about what our goals are."

General manager John Mozeliak told reporters in Cincinnati on Tuesday that Carpenter would undergo a battery of tests this week to see how much strength Carpenter has regained in his shoulder. As of Friday morning, Carpenter said he had not gone through any tests, nor was he aware of any being scheduled.
