Chris Carpenter throws problem-free bullpen session

1 Comment

Chris Carpenter left last week’s start with a hamstring injury and then had to cut short Sunday’s bullpen session when he felt a “twinge” in the same area, but Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that he successfully completed a problem-free bullpen session today.

Carpenter described the 12-minute session as “definitely way better than the other day” and said he “didn’t feel anything” wrong with his hamstring.

He’s still penciled in to make a start Friday, but the Cardinals may choose to push that back a couple days depending on how he feels tomorrow.

So yeah, some actual good news for the Cardinals (for now).
