Cardinals Injury News: Aside from Chris Carpenter, no restriction on starters

The St. Louis Cardinals suffered a major blow when they were informed of Chris Carpenter's inability to pitch this season.  Carpenter may not pitch again in his career, but for now he and the club have limited his injury concern to the 2013 season.  Outside of Carpenter, though, the staff appears to be healthy.

According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals expect the rest of their staff to be healthy going into 2013.  There will be no innings limitations, and as of now, no one will be on the disabled list aside from Carpenter.  This is good new as the team will need all the pitching help they can get with Carpenter sidelined.

Players like Adam Wainwright have already arrived at camp and are preparing for the upcoming season.  Wainwright made his return to the mound last season after battling through Tommy John surgery.  He took a while to adjust to pitching again, but he showed flashes of what made him a potential ace before the injury.

Wainwright is just one example of the players the Cardinals will have to rely on in order to reach the postseason again.  They've already suffered one major setback, but if the rest of the staff can stay healthy, they could be in good shape.
