    Lower back stiffness... doesn't sound like much. We will just see.

    Maybe/hopefully he'll skip the WBC.

    Edit: Yup. Maybe so. http://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseb...ign=user-share

    I hate the WBC. Absolutely a waste of time, and pointless risks.

    They should simply do it once every 10 years or so. Make it something special.

    Glad he isn't playing the WBC as well...hopefully he's fine injury wise though

    • Cardinals first baseman Matt Carpenter is playing, but only bunting in game action as he works through lower back pain. He’s about ten days from being ready to hit in a game, per Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (via Twitter). While that doesn’t leave a ton of time for Carpenter to ramp up for Opening Day, it seems he’ll be able to do so barring a setback.

    Carpenter started at 1B today. It'll be interesting to see if he bats.
