Chris Carpenter's career in jeopardy

Posted: Updated:

St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak announced Tuesday longtime Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter is unlikely to pitch next season and his career may be over because of a nerve injury.

Carpenter told Mozeliak that he's been feeling the same symptoms he dealt with before having surgery last year.

The 37 year old will seek medical attention, meaning he isn't quite ready to announce his retirement, but the Cardinals admit his future looks bleak.

The 2005 National League Cy Young winner is 144-94 in his career with a 10-4 record and 3.00 ERA in 18 postseason starts.
