News sources St. Louis Post Dispatch and Fox Sports. Fort Myers Florida. Former Cy Young Award winner, Chris Carpenter, was diagnosed with a bulging cervical disc injury according to team sources. The diagnosis was made after docotrs in Florida and St. Louis ran a series of tests.

Carpenter has missed a few workouts with the Cardinals during spring training sessions. The Cardinals management feared the stiffness in his neck would end his career in the Major Leagues.

St. Louis Cardinals general manager, John Mozeliak, said the decision to have Carpenter pitch again will be made in a few days, and that he is happy the 36 year old pitcher will not have his career end prematurely.

Carpenter had his 2004 Major League Baseball season cut short when he had neck problems. Carpenter had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow that caused him to miss most of the 2007 and 2008 baseball seasons. He had also had nerve problems in his neck after the surgery on his elbow.

Carpenter was the winning pitcher in games one and seven of the 2011 World Series.
