Update as of 2:35 PM:
According to Derrick Goold, “Carpenter felt twinge in hamstring. Came out to be careful. Called it a strain.” Fantasy owners can exhale for the time being….
Bad news may have just gotten worse for the Cardinals. According to B.J. Rains of Fox Sports Midwest (via Twitter), “Chris Carpenter just walked off the field injured with the trainer. He is done for the day.”
Carpenter was ranked 14th among Starting Pitchers on our most recent rankings (click here to view). Obviously, after losing ace Adam Wainwright due to Tommy John surgery this is the last thing the Cardinals needed. We’ll have more on the injury as soon as it becomes available.
