Injuries forced Chris Carpenter into retirement back in November, but he’s still going to have a presence with the Cardinals.
According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said this morning that Carpenter is “unofficially onboard” to join the team’s front office. We first heard about the possibility prior to his retirement, but an agreement was reached following a meeting earlier this month.
Carpenter doesn’t have an official job title yet, as his exact duties are still being ironed out, but Mozeliak said that he is interested in certain aspects of the front office and scouting. The former Cy Young Award winner is expected to have a role during spring training.
