Carpenter's season is done and his career is also in trouble

According to Joe Strauss' report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter may have a career-ending nerve condition.

A magnetic resonance imaging performed after Carpenter’s abortive August start found no structural damage in either Carpenter’s surgically repaired shoulder or elbow. Persistent weakness led team medical supervisor Dr. George Paletta last week to order an additional MRI of Carpenter’ neck. The imaging found damage to at least five nerves, according to a source familiar with the findings.

Carpenter has experienced tingling in the pinkie and ring finger on his right hand while also experiencing symptoms typically associated with carpal tunnel syndrome, according to a source.

At times, the 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner has been unable to fully extend all the fingers on his pitching hand.

Neurologists have concentrated their focus on the brachial plexus, a bundle or "superhighway" of nerves running from the spine to the neck and beneath the collarbone. The brachial plexus is responsible for firing most of the muscles in the upper arm.

That really sucks. Sounds like something that he will have to live with forever, baseball or no baseball.
