I agree that MLB teams shouldn't lie about player injuries. I don't think they owe anything to fantasy players per se, but I don't think it's in the best interest of any business or public figure to ruin their credibility.
I think the commissioner's office should become more active on this front.
Worse than the Carpenter situation was the BJ Ryan situation. If I was an executive at MLB, I'd be quite concerned with the comment I saw from Blue Jays GM Ricciardi.

"Two weeks ago, after two blown saves, the Jays put Ryan on the 60-day DL with what they said is a left elbow strain. At the time, the Jays said they did not believe his so-called back injury had anything to do with his arm trouble.
"First of all, it wasn't B.J. Ryan's back that was bothering him," Ricciardi said on the radio. "It was his elbow that was bothering him. So we said it was his back so we could have a bit more time."
