Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Chris Carpenter is going to have his season-ending surgery to correct his thoracic outlet syndrome today. I presume, as is the case with all athletic surgeries, it will be deemed successful.

His rehab could stretch into next season, when he turns 38. He’s under contract with the Cardinals through 2013.
