Carpenter to rejoin Cardinals Tuesday in Cleveland

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Matt Carpenter will rejoin the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday after missing a weekend series in Pittsburgh because of dehydration and an accelerated heart.

    

General manager John Mozeliak said manager Mike Matheny will decided whether Carpenter starts in Tuesday's series opener at Cleveland. Carpenter is among the National League leaders with a .333 average and tied for the league lead with 14 doubles.

    

Mozeliak said Monday the team will monitor Carpenter closely. Mozeliak also said Tyler Lyons will remain in the rotation for now, filling the spot of sidelined ace Adam Wainwright.

    

Marco Gonzales and Jaime Garcia both made injury rehabilitation starts last weekend and both will make at least one more start in the minor leagues.
