Cardinals | Impressed with Matt Carpenter

St. Louis Cardinals infielders coach Jose Oquendo is impressed with the transition that 1B Matt Carpenter has made at second base this offseason. "It isn't that big of a surprise," Oquendo said. "Schumaker did great on routine plays. But Schumaker had a tough time reading balls off the bat because of being in the outfield. (Carpenter) has been an infielder (third base, first base) almost all his time. He can read balls a lot better." 2B Daniel Descalso is the projected starter at second base heading into the season.
