The St. Louis Cardinals are happy with the transition that 2B Matt Carpenter has made with the move to second base, and he's in consideration for the starting job there. Carpenter hasn't committed an error in 44 innings this spring, and his footwork has become more natural. "I'm at the point now where if I were to be out there in a game I don't feel lost whatsoever," Carpenter said. "Am I going to win a Gold Glove over there? The odds of that are probably slim. But at the same time, do I feel like I can play an adequate second base? I do. I really do now. I'm comfortable at that position." Carpenter is battling with 2B Daniel Descalso, and the team expects the competition to spill into the regular season.

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Matt Carpenter, who is working with infielders coach Jose Oquendo to transition to second base, was told to watch New York Yankees 2B Robinson Cano and Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips to become a better infielder. "I kind of feel like a kid all over again, because you watch these other big leaguers and you try to be just like them," Carpenter said. "We're watching the unique techniques. Everybody does something different. We practice it all and try to figure out what I'm going to be the best at, and where I'm going to be most comfortable." The Cardinals have been impressed with Carpenter's work over the winter, but 2B Daniel Descalso will enter as the incumbent at the position.

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.

St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Sunday, Jan. 20, that 2B Daniel Descalso enters spring training as the team's starting second baseman. "I'm very comfortable with what Descalso has done there. If you see an uptick in his offense then he's an ideal contributor," Mozeliak said.

St. Louis Cardinals 2B Daniel Descalso is the favorite to enter the season as the starting second baseman, but 3B Matt Carpenter will challenge him at the position. INFs Pete Kozma and Ryan Jackson are in the mix for bench spots, but 2B Kolten Wong could make his way up at some point if he plays well in the minors.

Although St. Louis Cardinals SS Rafael Furcal (elbow) appears on track to be fully healthy for spring training and opening day, the team is unsure how his elbow will hold up when he resumes playing at full effort this spring. St. Louis is expected to be more cautious when giving Furcal playing time in order to keep him healthy throughout the season. INFs Daniel Descalso, Pete Kozma and Ryan Jackson are potential backups at shortstop for Furcal.
