With surgery done, Carpenter to embark on rehab
Cardinals starter Chris Carpenter underwent successful neurogenic thoracic outlet surgery in Dallas, the team announced on Thursday. The surgery was performed by Dr. Greg Pearl.

Carpenter, 37, will stay in the Dallas area for the next few days to recover before returning to St. Louis to begin his rehab.

With an expected rehabilitation time of two to three months, Carpenter should have a normal offseason and be ready come the start of the 2013 season.

"We are pleased with today's results, and Chris will soon return to St. Louis to begin his rehab," Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. "We look forward to seeing Chris around the ballpark during his recovery."
