Carpenter’s status uncertain for spring training

JUPITER, Fla. (AP)   Cardinals manager Mike Matheny isn't sure when first baseman Matt Carpenter will make his Grapefruit League debut. Carpenter is battling back tightness. For the time being, he is in the hands of the Cardinals' medical staff, who will determine when Carpenter can return to the field. Carpenter also missed much of last spring with back and oblique soreness.
