I just traded him last week in a $250/entry money league for Adam Dunn when reports had him coming back in a week to pitch.

It was reported by cards radio broadcaster mike shannon during today's game. He is a broadcaster employed by the team. It's all over the cards message board as well. ... -cardinals

Carpenter to undergo elbow surgery
05/05/2007 3:01 PM ET
By Matthew Leach /

ST. LOUIS -- The Cardinals announced on Saturday that right-hander Chris Carpenter will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow. The 2005 Cy Young Award winner, who hasn't pitched since Opening Night, is expected to be sidelined for at least three more months. According to a release from the club, the procedure will be performed early next week.

Carpenter came down with inflammation and swelling in his elbow following his start in the season opener. It was determined that the discomfort was caused by bone spurs, and that Carpenter also had some arthritis in the elbow.

He took two weeks without throwing a ball at all, as the club tried to combat the condition with aggressive treatment and rest. Carpenter threw a bullpen session on April 28, and reported no problems the following day. On Tuesday in Milwaukee, he threw three simulated innings, and again reported feeling fine. However, Carpenter encountered additional discomfort in his elbow, and on Saturday, the team announced that he will have the operation.

The Cardinals have yet to announce who will take Carpenter's position in the starting rotation, but Brad Thompson would appear to be a leading candidate. Thompson, who last pitched on Tuesday, threw a bullpen session before Saturday's game. That would put him on schedule for the next open spot in the St. Louis rotation -- on Tuesday, May 8, against the Rockies at Busch Stadium.

My mortal enemy in my keeper league (my brother in law) has Carp as a keeper.

Now, between Carp, Pedro and Ryan, his pitching is VERY soft for most of the year, while mine has been pretty good. Looking like a mid pack finish for my bro! Nice! ;-D

Carp, just go ahead and call it a season and come back next year! :*)

I'm pissed. I'm trying to salvage my ace, by offering him up for anything I can get. I'm considering him done for the year
