St. Louis Cardinal ace Chris Carpenter may have thrown his last pitch in his excellent career. According to MLB Trade Rumors, Carpenter will miss the 2013 season and probably end his career. The CYA winner in 2005, Carpenter has fashioned a brilliant 15-year career. He has a record of 144-94 with a 3.76 ERA. The three-time All-Star has a 3-0 record in World Series play with 2.00 ERA.
Carpenter, 37, missed almost the entire season in 2012 due to thoracic outlet syndrome. “If I have more health issues I’m not going to continue to try to battle through,” Carpenter said, according to the Post-Dispatch.
