Despite a rough season in AAA Memphis, the St. Louis Cardinals aren’t giving up on Chris Carpenter yet. According to Derrick Gould of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, the team will give consideration to re-signing Carpenter in the off-season if he continues to progress and decides to make an attempt to return. The 38-year-old impending free agent has been dealing with nerve problems in his right shoulder and hasn’t played in a Cardinals uniform this year. Despite initially hoping to return to the team later this season, he was forced to pause his rehab efforts due to increased numbness.  Carpenter has been with the Cardinals since 2004 and has a career ERA of 3.76. His veteran status with the team is a big factor in the clubs willingness to remain open to the idea of bringing him back next season. “Clearly his tenure with St. Louis would require a discussion on how that might look. I think right now we have to determine where he is physically and what that might look like two, three, four months from now and if he’s going to try and make a comeback. He’s meant a lot to us. I think he deserves that type of respect and conversation," said General Manager John Mozeliak. Despite losing Carpenter, rookie sensation Shelby Miller has aided in making up for his absence, with a 2.89 ERA over 21 starts. The Cardinals have a team ERA of 3.41 and are only two games out of first in the highly competitive National League Central. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
