Cardinals | Chris Carpenter cleared

St. Louis Cardinals SP Chris Carpenter (back, shoulder) has been cleared to resume his rehab from a lower back injury. He played catch Friday, June 21, and will throw a light bullpen session Saturday, June 22. How he responds will determine how the team uses him next.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't seem to be a serious concern, but it's slowed down his rehab a bit. Continue to view Carpenter as a luxury item for fantasy baseball purposes in the second half of the season. Stash him with no expectations or guarantees.
