Chris Carpenter experiences setback in his rehab

Jul 23, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

Cardinals right-hander Chris Carpenter has chosen to stop his rehab at least for a little while. Per Derrick Goold on Twitter, Carpenter called it, “[taking] a step back” after experiencing creeping numbness in his hand.  He will be examined by doctors tonight while the Cardinals open up a three-game series at home against the Phillies.

Carpenter isn’t discouraged, which is a good sign.

Carpenter hasn’t pitched since Game Six of the National League Championship Series last year, when he allowed five runs in four innings to the Giants. His rehab has, for the most part, gone better than expected up until now, and there was some thought he would rejoin the Cardinals before the end of the season, either as a reliever or as a starter depending on how he felt and how much of his durability he recovered.

      Success breeds jealousy huh fins?

    Sorry St. Loo, but I’m not jealous of anything the Cards or Chris Carpenter represent. You see, I can look at him and the team without Cards colored glasses, and what I see ain’t pretty!!!!!

      What I see ain’t pretty either fins. What I see is someone who jumps at the chance to drink their Chris Carpenter haterade at a moments notice. Your continual posts in this regard makes it quite obvious. Admire the Man’s work ethic. Admire the Man’s sincere tutelage of the younger pitchers. Admire than Man’s drive…skills and determination. You see…this is where we differ (among many other things I am sure). I can’t stand Brandon Phillips’ punk ass mouth. Dude runs his trap continually. I will also tell you he is the best 2nd Baseman in the NL. And for my money…the only two better are Pedroia and Cano. I don’t need colored glasses to make that claim. Dude can glove it and hit anywhere in the lineup.
      And yet…he is like a little lap dog constantly yapping his trap.
