Carpenter Not Ruling Out Pitching Again

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis

Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter hasn't ruled out pitching again, including

this year.

The 37-year-old Carpenter met with

reporters at Busch Stadium on Monday as pitchers and catchers reported to

spring training in Jupiter, Fla.  Last

week, the team all but ruled him out for this year after problems in his right

arm.

Carpenter is entering the second year of a

two-year, $21 million contract and said he owed it the organization to keep

trying. But after undergoing an eighth surgery last season, he said there would

not be a ninth.

Carpenter knew something was wrong a few

weeks ago when his hand turned red and purple and was aching soon after he

began throwing from a mound.
