ST. LOUIS (STLToday.com) - The next step for Chris Carpenter is no step at all.
The Cardinals' pitcher was at Busch hours before Tuesday's game against the Phillies, talking about his most recent rehab start for Class AAA Memphis and the discomfort attached to it.
"I'm going to take a little bit of time," Carpenter said. "After that last one, it just wasn't what we were looking for. I wasn't happy with the way that I recovered, and neither was the medical staff.
"We are going to take a step back, again."
