Cardinals starter Chris Carpenter has been sidelined all season due to thoracic outlet syndrome in his right shoulder, the same injury that kept him out of action for most of the 2012 season, save for some late September and October action. Initially, the Cardinals planned to use Carpenter as a reliever if and when he returned, but as he has made progress coming back from the injury, the trajectory seems to put him back in the starting rotation at some point.
