Carpenter goes down again

Quote:
St. Louis pitcher Chris Carpenter was removed with a strained left ribcage in the fourth inning of Tuesday night’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Carpenter was injured when he grounded out to third base to end the top of the fourth, team spokesman Melody Yount said. Carpenter went to the mound to warm up before the bottom of the inning, then called for a trainer.

The Cardinals led 3-0 when Carpenter was removed.

The 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner allowed four hits in three innings, striking out two. He has not allowed a run in 10 innings this season.

The 33-year-old right-hander made only four appearances last season after reconstructive elbow surgery. He underwent another procedure in November to transpose an elbow nerve that was irritating the muscles in the back of his shoulder and around his neck.
This is too bad.... this guy has worked hard to get back into the game. The good thing is that it isn't his arm or anything to do with the arm. Even though he is a Cardinal, you know this has to be frustrating for him as he has been doing really well this year in his comeback!

i never cheer injuries of players for other teams. I agree that its too bad (no sarcasim) that he is falling short of his comeback. Like you said, at least its not his arm

He seems to be their version of Mark Prior!

They reported today that he is on the DL, and a minimum of four weeks in the best case scenerio, worst case would be 8 weeks. He'd still have plenty of summer left, but it makes you wonder with being off that long will it affect his pitching anyway? This guy came back lights out, but he has also been working a very long time to get back to form!

And the Cards are in first place- I hate Tony, I hate his hair, I hate his smirk, but the MF can coach that is certain. The Cubs should be dusting this division but they are too busy reading their own press clippings. You can't win the NL in April and May but you can lose it. WAKE UP LIMEY FISH, HEY! Did anybody work out this off season besides Sori?
