Cardinals | More on Chris Carpenter

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals SP Chris Carpenter (shoulder) said he's already thrown four or five bullpen sessions and has had no pain or numbness in his arm. "I'm going to continue to throw bullpens," he said. "Just continue to get some work up there, continue to put some stress on my arm and see what happens. I've had no problems, no issues, no setbacks so far, and my arm feels strong. I'm feeling good about it. I'll continue to do it." He's apparently further along than he was in spring training with his throwing program.

Fantasy Tip: Carpenter said he's throwing at full bore, which is even more impressive. He was basically written off for this season during spring training, and many assumed he would just retire. Carp is a unique case, though, and the fact that he's throwing full-on bullpens gives hope for a return later this year. There are no guarantees, though. Continue to monitor his progress.
