Chris Carpenter: Set to Make 2012 Debut Friday
Update: Carpenter (shoulder) will make his 2012 debut Friday against the Cubs, Fox Sports Midwest's B.J. Rains reports.

Recommendation: Carpenter has been upping his workload over the past two weeks, as he's thrown a side session, a 70-pitch session and a 95-pitch simulated game. He should make two regular season starts, and could see action in the postseason if the Cardinals hang onto the second wildcard spot.
