Chris Carpenter felt “real good” after bullpen session


Chris Carpenter had shoulder soreness after throwing last week, but the Cardinals right-hander got back on the mound for 25-30 pitches yesterday and reported feeling “real good” following the bullpen session.

Carpenter indicated to Jenifer Langosch of that he’s taking things slow in his recovery from shoulder surgery because he’s wary of suffering a major setback that could jeopardize his career at this point, so for now he’ll stick to bullpen sessions.

There’s been a lot of speculation about whether Carpenter would rejoin the Cardinals as starter or a reliever, but he’s still pretty far from that decision actually being necessary.
